Hello!

Well this is my first post here. So a bit about myself, I have recently started collecting and playing Mordheim, about 4-5 months ago with two of my friends which was a result of us reminiscing about the days when we did play it first time around, and have not done much painting since those days, a good 12 years ago, except a few space marines.

So here is my second warband (first was Middenheimers), The Carnival of Chaos.

I finished my first brute last night;

and my Carnival Master;

First picture is with just the base layers, which is a very bad photograph, only noticed now I've come to upload the image, oppsie.

and now my next WIP, a Tainted one;

I am using a Zombie body as the bases for my first serious attempt at green stuff.

Well that is all for now. More soon, hopefully tomorrow unless I get distracted tonight. got a tight schedule if the Carnival are gong to appear at our next session on Sunday.

Well while I get on with my Nurglings and Plaguebearer, here are two other models I painted, one Necromancer for my Undead warband that I can never get motivated to finish, something about painting my two dire wolves fills me with dread. The other is my Middenheimer captain, I'll post that whole warband up another day.

Nercromancer;

Middenheimer Captain;


By skipspence at 2012-08-09

I made the mistake of painting these guys without preparing any bases for them in my eagerness to get playing and dread debasing them to sort it out hehe.

Thank you for the welcome!!!

Introducing my second Nurgling, sporting his favorite hat!





I'll get some better pictures tomorrow with the aid of sunlight.

I think I need a name for the Nurgling balancing on the ball, any ideas?

It's the reincarnation of Jimmy Durante...kind of. The nose & hat are what brought that to my Old Mind. You're attaining a level of silliness hitherto limited to Goblins...WELL DONE! thumbsup

haha, yes he does have a resemblance to Jimmy Durante, had to look him up though. Tell you what I'd like to see, an Indiana Jones Goblin with a Shorty Snotling by his side. Can just imagine a goblin with a whip, pistol and hat.

Anyway, here is the next Nurgling and the last for tonight! Afraid this chaps not such a happy little Nurgling like the other two!





Was thinking about what to do with my next two nurglings, thinking another grumpy clown and perhaps one in a wedding dress, if I can pull that off with green stuff :/

Great work on the nurglings! I say go with the dress - you should at least give it a try! I like your painting style, it fits the Mordheim feel very well!

The Troupe looks FANTASTIC in the Group Portrait. The angry /sad Little Clown is cool; sad faced ones are pretty common...Emmet Kelly is a good example. GREAT WORK! thumbsup

The wedding dress, if doable, would be a winner...a tutu might work also. clown

My tainted one is waiting for a wash to dry so I took a quick photo of him sunbathing.





The one thing that concerns me the most about a wedding dress, is the veil. I cannot think of a way to do one from greenstuff. Any ideas? The only way around it I can see is to use an actual piece of material for a veil but feel it would not sit well on the model.

Thanks! Really enjoying painting these guys, struggle a little with the yellow though.

Well I just finished the Tainted one, so he is off the join the circus now!





Next I think I'll either start a brethren or some more greenstuff to my second tainted one, who is slowly turning into a brute it seems as other ideas for a tainted one form.

Funny how things you enjoy doing turn out better than those you don't...you must love these Guys. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup
If you want the yellow to be brighter, do your wash in an orange or burnt orange rather than brown. clown

Don't want them any brighter for these guys, think they need to be quote dirty smelly looking. but at the moment I have two yellows, a Iyanden Darksun foundation and a sunburst yellow that must be as old as when I first collected Mordheim, and don't particuarly enjoy the way those two flow off the brush compared to some other paints.

Anywho, just put together a brethren and did a little more green stuffing to my next brute (not sure he is turning out well yet, will have to wait and see if I can manage to make his waist coat. So now to spray that brethren.

Thanks for the comments Smile

Well here is my first brethren. Considering redoing his moon mask as it just don't quite look right to me at the moment. Only a small conversion on this one, taking a empire militia bow arm for his left hand weapon.





but next i must get my green stuff out and get more done to my brute else I'll have to use a proxy for their debut game tomorrow which shall I think upset Grandfather Nurgle and ruin all the festivities this troupe have planned for the unfortunate residents of Mordheim!

DON'T REDO IT; the Moon Mask is my favorite part on the mini...of course, you're the one that has to live with it. That aside, the Bro turned out really nicely; good brushwork on a very in character piece. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

My wash is drying on my green stuffed Brute so I thought I'd share a picture to waste time waiting for it to dry.





Not the neatest work, but should hopefully do for tomorrows game!
