PostSubject: Strigany River Pirates   Wed 9 Mar 2011 - 11:05

On my birthday last year, Werekin presented me with some funky rules in order to use Strigany river pirates in Mordheim. This warband has been inspired from the Fantasy novel Ancient Blood. If you haven't read it, I strongly suggest you give it a go!

I've finally got a little collection of models going and thought I'd post some early WIP pics... all questions and comments are very welcome.


Warband leader or Domnu armed with an axe and pistol...


Gypsie girls with a variety of weaponry...








My favourite henchmen... pirate powder monkey... of doom! For fair line of sight during games I've got him standing on a barrel


Gotta have a dwarf pirate Hired Sword...


One last gypsie girl with a boat hook. Does anyone know if this is a Citadel mini? I was told it was Ral Partha, but need to know if they were anything to do with Citadel??


Thankski very muchlies for looking Smile

Looks promising! More paint on those minis (and a little brighter photos)! Are these rules a private treasure? Can they be found somewhere?

Esher gangers! At first I thought they were Amazons.

Ral Partha never had any connection to GW except that some sculptors worked for both companies (like Chris Fitzpatrick.)

While the black undercoat does make it a tad difficult for my old eyes to pick out details, what I can see looks VERY COOL & promising. Have FUN with the painting! thumbsup

Coming soon to a blog near you. Smile

The minis/conversions look very promising, by the way!
Unfortunately that Pal Ratha figure is a no-go for the purists...

A COOL mini is cool no matter who makes it; & Ral Partha was making cool minis before there was a Citadel/G.W..

Alas! The warbands leader is now painted. bounce He'll be based either on wooden planks to represent a jetty or a cobblestone quay side walkway...






I'm pretty please with how it came out... He still looks quite Imperial Guard-esque, but the model is very cool (Cheers Werekin Smile) As I said before, please feel free to comment or give constructive critisism.

Thanks for looking! I love you

Very nice and very neat paintjob!

t's really interesting to see how differently we approach the warbands Smile To give him a more fantasy feel, you could perhaps add some of the Bretonnian equipment, they got all kinds of dead animals, beetroot and pouches which look very Mordheim-ish Smile

I'm looking forward to the rest of the crew Smile

I just saw a few painted River Strigany for the first time this week. Very impressed with the conversions.

In case it's not already obvious, I am partially to blame for the use of sci-fi miniatures in the conversions! I procured a few special items for geekgirl. And you'll see more genre-crossing conversions in Marienburg when I begin posting my Heroes quite soon. Smile

Looking at the Domnu again, I think Eliazar is right in saying he is looking like he needs another small accessory or two to really set him off, although that eye-patch, the big knife stashed down his pants, and his bum-belt are a groovy start.

Only thing that makes him look guard-like for me is the dog-tag. Surely you wanna chip the corners with a craft-knife and repaint this to become a wyrdstone pendulum/pendant. It's all about the Power of the Stones! Wink

Oh, and where's his lucky rabbits foot got to!!?

Regards,

Werekin.

p.s. I want to have more accessories on my Heroes than Eliazar! Maybe I'm kidding myself...

It's doable Wink But I wonder if anyone is ever going to top five pistols on one model Very Happy

Anyway, I think the wyrdstone pendant instead of a dog tag is a very good idea! And very special.

challenge accepted!

on topic... really like a different approach here then I would have thought up... they look more fightingminded which I really like... curious as to what you'll come up with for the added details and accessories

Hmm... interesting! Thanks for your comments guys. I'll have a go at changing the dog tag to wyrdstone. I was hoping painting it gold instead of silver may stop it looking so dog tag like, but I'll persevere with it!

I'll have a hunt around in the old bitz boxes for additional accessories...

Will try and post more pics of other band members asap... work permitting!

Cheers

She's wearing a green glove because all the hands i found to use for the conversion were too big! lol

Next up is the mystic or Petru to the Strigany... I had fun painting this one today. I'm pleased with how her cloak came out but it looks a little pants on the camera, so just thought I's show you the front!



As before, I really value any comments you guys may have. I have taken on board the last feedback I had and I'm currently looking out for various gypsy / pirate themed accessories to add to these models. I recently spotted a Bretonnian snail...! thumbsup

The Boat Hook Babe & her Sorceress Amigo turned out TERRIFIC...your flesh tones are EXCELLENT. My only critique is that for Gypsies you might go for more vibrant colors. Other than that VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

+1 vibrant color. Especially for gypsy PIRATES! pirat

The evil cleric is a blast from the past, nice work on her. My eyes are too dim to spot the disappointment with the cloak.
