I'm currently working on making a warband for each of the original ones in the Mordheim book, in no particular order I might add. So to start things off here's the first mini I finished to a standard I'm happy with. Plenty more to follow though!




and as a taste of things to come some WIP Darksouls.

The Big Ugly Dude & his somewhat smaller Associates look TERRIFIC...a GREAT start on the Grand Project...nice kit bashing & green stuffing on the Darksouls. The Project itself seems like a fine & feasible affair. Keep up the GREAT WORK!   thumbsup

Nice paintjob on the possesed and the Darksouls are also looking good so far. Is that another possesed made out of an ogre on the very left?

Thanks guys, I'm really happy with the Darksouls, they were something of a spontaneous happening from my bits box. The idea is that they are are all beefed out from being possessed previously but mentally scarred so they wear the demon skull masks to terrorise their victims.

As Grimscull spotted there was another mini lurking off to one side, not a possessed, good guess though Smile, but a Chaos/Bad guy Ogre Mercenary and here he is along with his less greebly counterpart.



Also a quick and very WIP shot of my mercs who are finally get some paint on them, just as a wee teaser for ya.



PS: I'll get some better photos taken as soon as I get some space and a new battery for my decent camera.

Both of the Big Guys look better for the extra attention...nice tentacles. AND all the W.I.P. Rogues look potentially WONDERFUL. Have FUN with them all!   thumbsup

Thanks guys, looks like, by popular demand, the Possessed with have to be the next warband to receive the brush once I've got the mercenaries sorted.

@Yodhrin the legs are from the previous plastic dark elf warriors, I had some kicking around in my bitz box, though now I've got my hands on some bretonnian men at arms I would probably have used them instead.

Just a brief update and apologies for the photo quality but here are the first three mercenaries finished, not including their bases. I'll get some better shots up soon. The Captain in the middle and 2 Henchmen.

They are FINE looking group of Rogues. The Captain's finery & fancy pistol make him easily identifiable. Your selection of colors & brushwork are EXCELLENT. GREAT WORK!   thumbsup

These somnolent periods are something with which I can relate. Normally after I finish some project or other I need time to start off into space & moan quietly...drooling is an option, although a satisfying one. All that aside, I look forward to your next installment.   clown

Right, time for the updates to begin! starting with Dwarves!
There's been a lot of greenstuff gone into these guys and I'm pleased to see that the primer has hidden the worst parts.



The Thunderer/Quarreler is a fairly straight forward conversion with a new back pack for hoarding loot and an Empire crossbow.

The Leader has come out much better than I expected. I spotted him on Ebay but he turned up as a horrible chinese fake, with terrible mould lines and horrid lumps of metal all over the place, but I think I've managed to get rid of the bad bits and actually give him a decent left eye.

The first of the Troll Slayers is Borg Ironfist from Avatars of War, a gorgeous mini, he's fractionally bigger than the GW dwarves.



The standard GW Mordheim Troll Slayer, a classic.

The Engineer is another conversion using bits form the dwarf warriors and the Empire engineer. The greenstuffing on his hand resting on the axe isn't as tight as I'd like but its all practice.

The Thunderer uses an axe arm from a mantic dwarf, pistols from the Empire mercs and engineer, a hat from the empire crossbow guys and the main body /head from a GW dwarf.



These last 2 Thunderers are probably the most converted of all the warband thus far. I'll try and get some better shots of the guy on the left soon, his gun gets in the way a little.

Anyway, so many more warbands to get undercoated, I think I'll try and pace myself a little better this time rather than trying to do it all quickly and getting burned out.

Thanks, DeafNala Very Happy, I think my current plan is to get paint on these guys then finish the Mercs I started a while back.

At present I have the following 'complete' (well with more than enough models to field a decent warband) warbands:
(Part painted)
Dwarves
Reiklanders

(unpainted)
Middenheimers
Undead
Witch Hunters
Possessed
Skaven
Sisters of Sigmar

(In progress)
Bretonnians
Orcs
Night Goblins
Lizardmen

(In progress..in my mind)
Dark elves
a warband based on the characters of Darkest Dungeon (pc game)

Oh lord, so much to do, never mind the terrain....

I'm not the biggest fan of dwarf minis (especially the later GW-ones), but your conversions really look great!
