Hiho guys!

Seems to be inappropriate to post pics of hired swords in my other topics, which are related to warbands. So I started a new one Rolling Eyes

I like collecting and painting hs because of the differences and the diversification of the models.
I've got some pictures of a pit fighter, elven scout and a ogre floating around here somewhere which pics I'll add here shortly.
For now enjoy my newest ugly experiment of conversion! Whahaha Twisted Evil

Found this miniature in my bitzbox. Think it belongs to the whfb starter of the 7th editon and I got it from a White Dwarf years ago. Since there are no real dwarfen hs to hire he'll be a dwarfen trasure hunter. The rules are from some fanatic magazine I've found on the net, and should be availeble at the specialist games website. He shouldn't have a shield but I was too lazy to remove it and onyl added him a mining picaxe and a latern rig. Enough words, here is the model:

He's coming along VERY NICELY; the extra gear is a fine touch to the mini. Keep up the GOOD WORK! thumbsup
I agree: the Hired Swords add an extra bit of color & character to a War Band along with a pleasant break from the standard minis.

He is done. You might have noticed I'm more into elves and think about the little hairy ones as uncultivated barbarians with no manners who drink to much plump beer instead of a fine wine Razz
It was my first dwarf and I think it will be the last one. Well maybe I get some of the even more barbarian orange hair dudes ... you know the really crazy ones Very Happy

So the motto was: "quick and dirty", the lantern rig is kinda aslope and sloppy, the mining pick is much to big and the paintjob is not that accurate as I would do on elves. Still I need some cannon fodder for my human warbands.

Even quick and dirty, the improvements are clear. I like him!

Simple and effective - just how I like it. Smile

Good idea to use a real thread for the rope. Looks great!
