PostSubject: Nasse's new Warbands (Dwarfs, Mercs, Skaven)   Fri 7 Aug 2015 - 12:22

Hello, I last posted here somewhere around 2012, it seems. I've been on and off modelling in general,  but my local club has been on a Mordheim kick ever since before AoS became real, and I've gotten back into it too. Sadly my modelling skills haven't improved much since, but here are my multiple warbands under construction.

First up, the Dwarfs. I actually had a pretty succesful warband with them in 2013-2014, but I've since started to dislike the minis I made, so here are some "new" ones:



The heroes of the group, Slayer, Noble with sword, pistol and shield, Engineer with Crossbow and sword, and another slayer.



Some Thunderers. My starting warband has two thunderers with pistols and hammers.



Youngbeards with halberds, maybe? I just felt like making Bretonnian dwarfs.



And an extra Thunderer with a crossbow.

Second, Averland Mercenaries. They're currently my most advanced warband with seven games played, most of them lost.



Here are the heroes of the band, 3 mountain guard, the sergeant and two bergjägers.
The halberdier actually got promoted.



And these are the halfling scouts. Sam here is actually my current leader because my captain died trying to backstab a possessed warband.
I've ordered some Halfling figures but they're still on their way.



A moment of silence for those lost  Crying or Very sad My captain made from an elf hero with a sword, a blunderbuss marksman who has so far never been used, and youngblood with a spear and buckler, who died. I currently hired a new one with a bow and an axe I found off a corpse, but haven't modelled one yet.



Another view of the captain I loved so well.



And here we have some random bowmen I originally made for my Averland Expeditionary force but never used.
I kind of want to start a middenheim merc group as I love their fluff, and the accessory sprue they have.

Third, Skaven. I felt like playing something with high Iniative and lots of spears. And evil. Evil, evil.



Pictured is my assassin, a giant rat, Sorcerer, and a verminkin with a spear and shield making a pose. I used the skeleton hand for the sorcerer to represent all kinds of weird magical experiments those vermin play on each other, and sculpted the tatters of a sleeve on with green stuff.
There isn't a lot to show of these guys, as the most special thing about them are their bases. Haven't painted them yet. I'm using metal stormvermin as my black skaven, and otherwise the warband is built of mainly just a box of night runners and clanrats (the old kind).

And I'll just sneak in a little bit of terrain here too:



A picture from our club the other weekend. Wanted to show off the two foam platforms I made to get some sort of a height difference on the table, though with them guess where the fight always concentrates Razz




Here's a house I spent four days on making.



Last but not least, a graveyard I am working on currently.

I also got a rat ogre and the war chief from the Island of blood to add to my skaven collection, I'm going to convert the war chief to wield Fighting Claws probably. Hopefully I'll get to painting these soon. I'm always looking for new warbands to start too. Just won an auction for the Sisters of Sigmar starter pack, actually.

These guys all look really cool, I especially like the Brettonian Dwarf, he looks suited to tunnel fighting in dwarven holds. Those big Bret shields really fit the aesthetic. Very Happy

The terrain is looking sweet too, nice to see some of the old card buildings in there too Smile

A sneak peek to what I've been doing hobby-wise lately. For some reason I haven't got an inspiration to paint my stunties right now Crying or Very sad
(Those of you who have played Mordheim Multiplayer might guess what this is going to be)

There's a new hobby shoppe that opened over in the next town and I went to visit; unfortunately they mostly do Games Workshop by order only. I did pick up a box of Hexwraiths/Black Knights. Wonder what could I do with those?
Also have been ordering old plastics and metal miniatures. These days I'm mostly thinking of using EVERYTHING in Mordheim rather than for Fantasy Battles though.
Got a nice-ish deal on some more Sisters of Sigmar and Reiklanders and Marienburgers. Will probably post pictures of the loot when they arrive!
Edit: I forgot this bloke. I like how he looks right now but I'm at a loss as to what do for his arms.

COOL STUFF! The Ruins have sinister potential; AND the Rotund Rogue has a lot of personality/character. Have FUN with them both!   thumbsup

The Pool?

Looking good!

For arms you could look at the arms that come with the figure and trim Empire arms similarly. Or just use arms that come with the Brettonian sprue.

Indeed! I got a bottle of Vallejo Still Water and can't wait to try it out.
I'm hoping to do something special with the fat bloke, think I'm waiting to get a hobby drill (or miraculously find the one I lost) and try to make him a halberd out of a cocktail stick...

I got some of my Mordheim-related orders today. Yay!


Also progress on the fat bloke - I got a new hobby drill and something I've never had before: a tape measure that has inches on it! It's wonderful how far bumming things off others can get you in life.

Got my first "real" Mordheim mercenaries today, yay!
Gonna start painting everything this week, but I'm also still building my Middenheimers (including a wolf priest of Ulric) after War Cry 2015 this weekend.

Your Bands of Rogues should be able to flex some muscle soon with all those FINE additions. Have FUN with the paining & enjoy War Cry!   thumbsup

That head totally changes the Fat Bloke's personality. Good choice.

Have fun with your purchases.

No painting as of yet, even the pool's not done yet. I've started on a lot more figures and another terrain project though!
(I also organized all my fantasy bits into 5 cases for easier browsing)

These figures are for Mordheim, the cannon is for my empire army.


Here we have a member of the fabled Gryphon legion working as a Freelancer in Mordheim.


A very heretical Dwarf, I got him with the shield on from a friend and added chainmail and cloth on his back.


An illustrious Bretonnian Knight joins the fray!


He was just a regular "great weapon" wielding knight, but with a bit of green stuff and a shield bit from the bretonnian archers sprue he became captain Boris Von Middenheim on horse!
I'll be adding baggage and his shield on the horse once I get to making that.


And here we have the finalized fat bloke, A.K.A. Youngblood Emil.


Also the largest bit of terrain I've made or seen in real life yet: an approximation of Count Steinhart's Palace from the Mordheim map! (I need to buy a lot more foamcore, and I probably won't make the towers at the corners at all).

Thanks for all your replies, they let me know people want to see more! Expect to see something of a full metal Beastmen Warband here soon, as I should be getting yet another shipment on Friday.

You always seem to have something interesting in the works. When the painting catches up, you will have an IMPRESSIVE collection of cool stuff. GREAT & INTERESTING WORK!   thumbsup

Thanks! I got the other bunch of stuff today so here's what I'll be using as models for my Beastmen Warband:



I also have a bunch of plastic Gor from around the 6th edition if/when I need to go beyond 11 models.
