Firstly, I would like to thank all of the Border Town Burning staff for their amazing hard work, as well as the community here on the forums who supports them. Thank you very much!

Secondly, please allow me to introduce myself, I am Vexxus. Some of you may already know my brother Xander, who is the creator of the website Chaos Dwarfs Online, with whom BTB have been actively engaged with. One such interaction came in the form of the Golden Hat 6 Painting Contest over at CDO. The challenge this time was to create a 'Gaoler' as described in the BTB rules under the Black Dwarfs list. To make a long story short, I finished my Gaoler conversion/painting in about 3 days after the start of the contest! I was already SO impressed with the Black Dwarfs list, and all the hard work contained therein, that I wanted to go ahead and create the remainder of the warband in time for the end of the contest, using figures already converted by Xander, and a couple of my own. The pictures below are the fruits of that labour!



The warband's heroes include a Fire Sorcerer, a Bull Centaur with shield and axe, and of course a Gaoler equipped with both a steel whip, and a 2H Mancatcher (but he will only fight with one at a time Cianty thumbsup ). The henchmen of the warband include 2 Chaos Dwarfs, one with a 2H Axe and the other with a Blunderbuss; as well as two informers with hand weapons.

Sadly at this time I do not actually PLAY Mordheim, but if I found individuals to play with, I would certainly be interested! Needless to say the BTB website has inspired me, and I am happy to now be able to contribute something back. Enjoy!





Cheers,
Vex

Wow, this is really impressive. I knew I could expect some awesome minis when I first saw your Gaoler (which is still a freaking stunning model!) but this tops my expectations. I love the atmosphere of this little warband! There's something really evil and menacing about these guys. A really really great job! thumbsup

One thing I am missing, though, is an equally impressive Prison Cart. Razz Wink

What an INCREDIBLE GROUP OF VERTICALLY CHALLENGED, SADISTIC PSYCHOPATHS, which, from a Goblins perspective is how ALL Dwarves come off.

Normally with minis that have been finished to such a high standard it is impossible to choose a favorite, but, surprisingly, in this case the "Gaoler" [the little pervert with the whip Suspect ] wins hands down; he just has such a tremendous amount of personality AND I love that harpoon gun (?)! Your bases ROCK ; VERY IMAGINATIVE & BEAUTIFULLY RENDERED. BRAVO; WELL DONE! thumbsup

@matt: What a GREAT IDEA; if my pics are fuzzy I don't have to face any critiques. Since my photos normally scale the heights of mediocrity ANYWAY this is THE PERFECT solution. THANKS! thumbsup Suspect lol!

Yeah, that's his Gaoler conversion, that took 3rd place at the Golden Hat #6 competition. This is how he was presented over at Chaos Dwarfs Online:

Thank you all so much for your comments, they serve to fuel my enthusiasm and motivation even further!

The Gaoler was definitely my baby, I put a lot of straight hours into him, and he definitely holds a special place in my heart haha. Thanks for posting the close ups of him Cianty! Here is a "greens" shot of him, prior to painting. My work with green stuff was VERY limited prior to this model, and it shows a bit, as some of the stuff is rough, and had to be made up for in painting. The 'Harpoon Mancatcher' that you liked was built from the dwarf sprue's arm, with the end of the 'harpoon' cut off, some plastic tube, a goblin spear shaft, thicker tube cut thin for the joint, and two undead swords/blades for the pincers!
For the rest of the model, the legs are dwarf, the torso is marauder, the head is actually an ogre face I trimmed down a ton, then added green stuff beard, the whip is wire I twisted and covered in green stuff, and the handcuffs are also custom made from green stuff and hobby chain.



If you have other specific close ups you would like to see here just let me know, I don't want to flood the post with images unless thats what you want haha.

Cheers,
Vex

Thanks mucho for the how-you-did. You've given me some ideas including something else to do with ALL those extra Ogre heads.
I'm glad a little WELL EARNED praise of your work has gotten you enthused for YET further modeling madness. AND on this forum the only amount of photos is NOT ENOUGH [I think it has something to do with the way reading effects us Sleep Suspect ].

BTW I like your Avatar: that's how I hoped [& failed] I'd look when I had my Lotus way back in my misspent youth [a misspent youth spices up your memories when you get OLD; highly recommended Suspect ]

Thank you Deafnala, but I guess youth is relative, I feel old already, at 28.

Anyhow, more pics as requested!

affraid

Wholly Crap! Those are freaking amazing!!!! cheers Very well modeled and painted.

They are all just amazingly done. Bravo! I would love to play against those beautiful models.

If I really had to choose...I think that sorcerer is my favorite. The rocks, candles and the whole feel is great.

Hat's off Sir, yes sir!

Thanks for the "behind-the-scenes" pic of the Gaoler, I love seeing such pics!

And, yeah, there's no way we wouldn't appreciate you flooding this thread with photos, seriously!

Thanks for posting the link to the Chaos Dwarfs Online. Some really cool stuff there, & it looks to be a lively, not-so-little community. thumbsup
I LOVE the Boar Drawn Prison Wagon: definite theft possibilities Suspect .

AMEN to that! Except, of course for that Disreputable Old Coot Suspect !

Addendum: I REALLY am not much of a joiner, but browsing through the forum at CDO I cracked & signed on. Just shows, if you leave the door open, any OLD Hooligan can wander in! Suspect
