Hello all! I recently stumbled upon a couple guys in my area who also love Mordheim. As a result, I dusted off my old unfinished warband and even made them a shiney new leader. I had wanted to convey a highly militaristic feel by using standardized equipment and armor. The backstory in a nutshell is that the fellow below was a Bretonian knight who sullied his honor by using many an unchivalrous tactic and weapons in the Border Princes. Finally his brothers had enough and crushed his army, the remenants of which fled with their renagade lord. I am currently using Reiklanders for them.

I give you "The False Knight", "The Lord of Rogues", Sir Edwyn Gristmantle:

"Chivalry is a lovely notion but it can get you killed."

"In to 'em!"


Q,C&C always welcome. Hope to have the marksmen finished soon. They have crossbows as they would seem to be even more unchivalrous.

Excellent combination of bits. The model certainly tells a story. Details and wonderful paint job make it look life-size.

Thanks fellas! I'm so thrilled there's a forum for this. Thanks for that too! The Knights of the White Wolf have wonderfully detailed heads and this one has always been one of my favorite. More to come soonly once life gets outta my way.

Nice. If you like those old bearded heads I recommend you check out the flagellant box.

Brilliant job, a really good conversion that suits the backstory perfectly. I'm toying with starting a Middenheimer warband and I've found that Space Wolf heads are perfect once you trim the big collar pieces off. the plaited hair and beards look really cool. Thank God for online bits stores  Very Happy
