PostSubject: The Fishmen of Sartosa: Kap'n Hadduk's Halibuteers!   Thu 4 Oct 2007 - 7:27

During the first "Flame On" Sartosa campaign there were repeated rumours that the Fishmen where attacking coastal villages and carrying off loot and captives. They only ever attacked on foggy nights and no-one ever got a good look at them. Later-on some of the towns even started accussing their neighbouring settlements of colluding with the Fishmen in a kind of protection racket.

It was the Naval Alliance (the goodies) who eventually got sick of not knowing what was going on first and sent an investigative band to one of the aflicted towns. The investigators returned empty handed after receiving a beating from the squamous menance.

Eventually the Beastmen of Nethrag discovered that the "Fishmen" were Pirate Black Orcs in disguise, trying to frighten off the invaders in a "Scooby-Do villain" style hoax! Kap'n Hadduk's Hallibutteers had been behind the attacks all along!

The Fishmen went on to terrorise the inhabitants of the Great Forest during the Nemesis Crown summer campaign, but this time they were a little less bothered about keeping their secret!

WoW! Indeed, they've got the Murlok style! :cat:

Impressive... Most impressive! My wife loves the Orcs (she finds them cute, don't ask me why... And no, she doesn't find me cute the same way she finds them!) And she found yours very beautiful.
Nice work!

Great job Warboss Kurgan!!! Very Happy

I love warbands with such a strong theme (and in your case great conversions too!).

Fantastic! I love it! Thank you very much for sharing. It's posts like this that make the "gallery" section one of my favourites.

Great job!

Warboss: You mentioned the Sartosa campaign not having an Orc Warband... well, I think you've inspired me. Want to co-write a Fishmen/Orc warband?

EDIT: On an amusing side note, I most certainly knew an actor who could never remember the name for an axe-headed polearm. (a prop of his) He kept refering to it as his 'halibut'.

It's a nice idea but I have two reservations: One, I don't think may people would use it it took quite a while to make them. Two, I don't want everyone using Orc Fishmen!

For Orc Pirates in your Sartosa book you could just allow normal Orc and Goblin warbands as long as they have a Piratey look/theme to them. The rules are fine as they are but they just need a Pirate flavour for a Sartosa-themed campaign.

Sigh. You're right. I left Greenskins a special Blackpowder rules and a new weapon (the cheap 'Booma') and and I'll leave them at that.

I wanted to say that I really like these guys too. I especially like the first image. Way cool idea, and great job on the conversions and the paint.

Yeah, WBK's creations are full of great little (funny) details! That is (amongst other things) why his models are so great Smile

Wow! This indeed is a great warband, Kurgan! I really like the attention of details, and I just love the theme. Very Happy

There's nothing better than the "Scooby-Do villain" theme. Razz

You have become a Legend in my own mind. I keep coming back to look at this great piece of work, browsing through the Sartosa pics, & the ships, & himself the Adm'rul, & the pumpkin patch. It leaves me speechless; so this time I just skipped to the end. You are one of the most creative & imaginative people I've ever almost met.
