After I started painting my Reikland warband I decided to start an Undead warband as well.  My now defunct Vampire Counts army provided a great place to start and I only needed to add a few new models and rebase the rest.  So I figured I would post some photos of the models I plan to use for the warband. They all have some degree of conversion work, whether large or small.  Please let me know what you think!




Vampire





Necromancer






Dreg 1





Dreg 2





Dreg 3




More to come...

Awesome looking conversions! I really like the skeleton dreg look, and you have great greenstuff skills. The necromancer is particularly exceptional! Can't wait to see more!

Great kitbashing. Also like Sigvald as a vampire a lot. I have seen his vulture before, where was that bit fro again?

Thanks guys appreciate the feedback. I love that Sigvald mini he is one of my favorites and I think he is perfect as a vampire. The necromancer was originally designed to be an alternate Henreich Kemmler in my Fantasy army, I really disliked the actual sculpt.

I bought that vulture bit by itself a few years back I couldn't tell you exactly what kit it was from. All I know is it was from a Fantasy Tomb Kings kit.

TERRIFIC! The Skeletons, in particular, are OUTSTANDING minis. The Chaos Guy/Vampire is one of those miniatures that I've never been fond of; HOWEVER, he has definite potential as a Creature of the Night. AND  the Necromancer is just plain UBERCOOL. Have FUN with the painting et al!   thumbsup

Finished these 12 ghouls recently.  I was going for a Freddy Krueger look and I'm really happy with these.  Just have to finish up the bases.

Great work on the ghouls. They are my favourite ghoul models because they are lean and hungry-looking, but still a little human. You've painted them nicely.

The vulture comes from the Tomb Guard box set.

Okay so after a serious Mordheim hiatus I finally got around to polishing off my Undead Warband.  I plan to run this Warband with a Vampire and Necromancer and a lot of Ghouls, trying to make them Heroes as soon as possible.  The rest of the Warband will be Dire Wolves and a Werewolf.  I'm not using any Zombies which may or may not work out for me...we'll see.  Although I did convert a few skeleton warriors to use as Zombies just in case I need them due to my Necromancer's spells.  I decided also not to use the Dregs I had converted...I just really love my Ghouls and want to see four of them as Heroes.

Vampire:






Necromancer:





Werewolf (Ogre Bodyguard):





Dire Wolves:



Ghouls with rocks:


Ghouls with bones:


Ghouls with weapons:


I need to paint up the skeletons I'm going to use as zombies and I will finish my Dregs at some point, but I'm really happy with what I have here so far.  I think this Warband looks very cohesive and should be fun to put on the table.

Fine work! Excellent choice for the vampire, really fits with the aristocratic haughtiness of the von Carsteins, a classic looking necromancer (you so rarely see pointy hats these days, & that's a shame), & properly blood-smeared cannibalistic ghouls. But for me, the outstanding point is the werewolf. It's a good idea for a counts-as, really works with the retro-horror style of the vampire counts, & the shredded skin hanging off him -- yikes! Great work.

Thanks very much for the kind words. The Werewolf is actually a Chaos Skin Wolf produced by Forge World.

Nice, clean paintjob. The bases could maybe use some more love as they are rather "empty" but thats's just my opinion. Very Happy

Thank you. The bases are left clean with just some sand and a few drybrushed colors to match my gaming table.

Wonderful warband! Nice choice of vampire, love the sadistical grin! Although I miss in him more red and black, specially since they are the tipical Von Carstein colours, Maybe a black cape and red armour or the cape black from the outside and red in the inside. Another thing that it could be a personal mania is that I usually use ink in the metallics (i see it too "shiny" otherwise).

Excelent work!

EDIT: WHERE IS THE BIRB??

EDIT2: Zombies are trash

Thanks very much jymmy. I wanted to convey a sense of grime with this warband. So I decided to go with the olive on the characters and some of the ghouls. As for the armor I was trying to go for a set of armor that was previously rusted and had seen better days but was recently "cleaned up" so the Vamp could venture out into Mordheim. I decided to get rid of the bird because it would have pulled to much focus away from the Vamp himself.

I quite like the colour scheme -- the impression of decay & disease is a good theme for the undead (as a corrupting 'sickness' in the Empire, especially with all those ghouls). Also it's a change from red & black, which can get boring. It's 'codex' colour scheme, if you know what I mean, & defying the 'codex' can be a very easy way to make a model or warband your own.

Also probably a good decision to lose the bird, fun as it was. Especially on such a dynamic model it could have spoiled the lines of the figure. Might be worth sticking on a zombie though -- I like the idea of a vulture pecking at a body even as it marches into battle.
