Hi,

I have been working on a Middenheim warband for a while.  Here are some henchmen, two swordsmen with sword and buckler, and a warrior with a halberd:







I know these guys don't look particularly "Middenheimy", (wolf pelts and hammers) that is for the heroes of the warband.

The Middenheimers look TERRIFIC...GREAT brushwork & basing. Their expressive faces are priceless. VERY WELL DONE!   thumbsup 
When I first started down the Road of War Gaming Ruin, minis were all done up in nice glossy enamels. SO your Shiny Lads stir up some fond memories for moi.   What a Face

haha I was just gonna say that the models look great, but you might want to tone down the varnish a notch or two.

Thanks for the comments guys.  

@Alex For me, this is "toned down" varnish :-)  Some of them are so shiny they don't photograph well at all.

The warband continues to grow, here is a champion with great weapon:

Now there's a Middenheimer!  thumbsup 

I go back and forth on the gloss varnish kick. I had a can of a nice artist's varnish a few years ago that produced the nicest glossy finish. The next can of the same stuff didn't work as well and I haven't done gloss as a final coat since.

It's been a while, I've been dealing with a skaven warband in the crawlspace among other things...  

Here are a couple more warriors with great weapons:





The one guy has a flocked base, but I think I will not be doing that for the other bases.

Here's the captain of the warband.  I really like this mini and he was the inspiration for starting this warband.



I initially intended the warband to have more missile weapons.  I painted up some LotR rangers I have as marksmen, but the castings were really bad and their clothes and equipment did not look right, so they won't be joining the band.

NICE ADDITIONS! The Captain looks to be a suitably heroic leader. GREAT WORK!   thumbsup

I particularly enjoy the leader's beard

Also it's the sculpt of the model rather than your painting but his legs look real skinny to me Razz

@DeafNala - Thanks!

@Lukezilla91 - Stripes are slimming :-) I think you are right, he looks a little bit slimmer in the legs and feet than the empire militia minis. The empire militia has very chunky proportions.

A couple of youngbloods.  They are armed with hammers and bucklers.





And the freelance knight (on foot), a possible future hired sword:

I love those models, but I gotta say, I really don't like the glossy finish. It makes it look like they're made of glass, and will just as easily break. I like a more realistic look, with a matte or flat finish.

Been a while but I have produced some more figures:  A pit fighter (a Reaper P65 model, I call her M'Ouldlyn) and another guy with a greataxe.  I guess I feel that Middenheimer's shouldn't just have hammers.
