To go along with the terrain wip thread I've got running, I thought I'd start one up for the warbands I'm planning & working on.

So, far, there's only 1 complete mini, ready for painting:



First part I'll admit isn't 100% in focus... but thats me I reckon Smile

He's made with parts from the original Mordheim sprues (My bitz-box is fairly old...) empire state troop sprue, space marines and plasticard for the base filler

The mini has a nice armed-to-the teeth look to him...sharp looking base too. Keeping the W.I.P. minis separate from the terrain is a FINE idea...I wish I had thought of it. Suspect That aside, keep up the GOOD WORK, & keep us updated as things develop. What a Face

Yup, Rieklanders at first, primarily as I have enough parts in the bitz box to do a gull band, same with beastment.. Then either dwarf, undead or possibly witchhunters...

Armed-to-the-teeth is good.. thats the look I was going for (While trying to avoid over-doing it) given he's planned to be a champion Smile

And.. What on EARTH is a warnadb... Smile Better put that title right... I suppose that'll teach me to type replies at early-o'clock in the morning... Smile

He looks really good; the positioning gives the impression of motion in an understated way, & the knotted end of the rope is TERRIFIC. VERY NICE WORK...keep us updated as you progress. thumbsup

You made EXCELLENT PROGRESS. That is a very nicely equipped & positioned Band of Rogues. The Marksmen are especially cool. Keep up the GREAT WORK. What a Face

I may steal that rope and hook idea, that is just too cool not to try! These are excellent by the way!

Thanks Guys Smile

Wendigo: Feel free, it was easy enough, but fiddly as all out Smile

Used:


For the flanges

and


For the haft, as well as 15amp fusewire for the rope and 5 amp fuse wire for the lashing rope, along with a little liquid green stuff.
To be honest, the most daunting part for me was rebuilding the fingers on his left hand as I'm only taking early steps in sculpting so far...

Finally started to get some paint on a couple of the chaps

Captain Friederik Welleborn:

His armour's done, skins done, but thats about it so far Wink

Swordsman Markus:

I'm not sure about his hair & beard colour, I'm thinking about changing them to blonde... Otherwise about the only thing donw is skin and the trousers.....

**Edit - Yup, he looks better as a dark blonde...**

Looking good! Full of character and the WIPs of the painted miniatures look very promising.

Awesome kitbashing. They all have very dynamic poses and look great together. The grapple-line looks very cool. I find the marksmen most interesting.

I also like your basing. Non conventional and very neat.

Good stuff! Like many others, I particularly like the grapple guy! That's some real good converting! Looking forward to seeing more of them painted!

Ah ha, someone else using Warmachine style bases Smile.

Cool stuff, love all the accessorising on the miniatures, gives them a real "ruffian" feel over a regimented look (something I need to do more of on my minis).

Keep it up

(paintwork looks good so far too).

Oh, I LOVE your grappling hook model! We need more warriors who doesn't just "strike a pose" with his/her weapons. I am SO stealing this idea Smile

Good grief...

I never expected Detlef & his Grappling hook to be so popular Smile

To be fair, I think all 3 of the current marksmen are doing somethign other than striking a pose - Detlef has his hook, Tancred is playing the pipe and Mortiz.. well, ok he's reloading so that probably counts Smile

I've basically taken th eopportunity with the warband to do something a little more with the models, I find with so few figures on the table, each one taskes that little bit more attention
