Hey all!!

Finished up my reiklander heroes today so thought I'd post some pics of them. I wanted them to look like dirty thugs and bandits so used a lot of dark colours, brown, grey, black, etc. and used a lot of devlan mud wash and badab black wash. I also didn't clean them up to much with highlights and so... This is the result:





First off, the captain:




And here is a champion:




And another champion:




And one of the youngbloods:




And last, the other yongblood:




I will add more pictures of henchmen, hired swords and even a dog, all a part of the reiklander warband, when I finish painting them!

I like them a lot! First of all, you got some of the minis I couldn't so far get my hands on, which makes me a little jealous. Second, the little conversion on the captain really turned out great, way better than the original one.
And third, you have a very mordheimish palette of colors. All the greys and browns fit the minis nicely, even if they are Reikländer. Actually reminds me a little of my own witchhunters Laughing
The only suggestion I have is that the faces on the minis and the grey cloth on the greatsword and the spear-younblood would probably benefit from some litte highlights.

You must be refering to the youngbloods I imagine? They only cost me about 10€ on ebay for both still in the original blister and I was a bit surprised when I was the only bidder Very Happy
I think that this particular reiklander captain is one of the coolest mordheim minis released and also the one that got the most "mordheim-ish feel" to him which I also really tried to nail with the colours. Only problem was the weapon option, which I found unsufficiant, so I had to make my own! Actually the mordheim witch hunters on GW's homepage is my main inspiration regarding the colours and the dirty, grim look...

I tried highlighting the faces, but my problem is that the only skin colour I got is elf flesh, so when I highlight with it, the faces get this piggy-clean-shaven look to it, so I think I'll stick to this for now! Thanks for the feedback though, Grimscull! thumbsup

No, the Youngbloods I got myself like three times (no exageration). I was referring to the cool Captain and the Greatsword.
And I just wanted to say that we seem to have a similar taste in color-schemes, nothing else.
Did you try highlighting the skin with Bleached Bone and the grey with Skull White + Codex Grey? Just if you feel like trying it out.
And you're welcome thumbsup

Oh, those miniatures are available from GW's webpage here! I just ordered two champions and GW was so kind to ship me one of each, which I did not expect Very Happy Some other guy in here got two of the same marienburger champions, so....

I know this "in general", but must have pushed it to the back of my mind for these particular minis. Anyway, I'll for now leave the field for others to comment on your lovely warband. Cheers!

VERY NICELY DONE! I hadn't realized that the Reiklanders were now in the "collectors" category...I'm glad you were able to get your Lads. thumbsup

Digging these Reiklanders BtW! I'm building mine almost exclusively out of the Free Company boxed set, so they'll certainly be different! I dig your earthy, gritty approach here. Keep sharing!
