PostSubject: WIP Marauder warband   Tue 21 Oct 2008 - 23:01

I have decided to start a new warband after having a look at the BTB rules and the Marauders caught my eye, mainly cause i had always wanted a proper chaos warband(Marauders/Warriors) in mordheim and a slight side project from the army i'm currently working on.
I think most the models in this will be heavily convert cause i don't like the Marauder models too much Razz

right enough jibber jabber and onto acouple of picture eh?

WIP Chieftian



Not too happy with the shield so far, but i will see how it turned out once i'm done.

C&C always welcome Smile

Well when I saw it was you posting I knew it'd be a cracker, I wasn't disappointed! Get more work done on it (and the others) NOW man! I love the shrivelled head, where's that mini from?

ps just realised that looks like Iron Maiden's mascot, Eddy...

VERY NICE, FOOT!thumbsup

I also like the Skull Mask somewhat more than the helmeted head. It looks to be a pretty cool mini, which your painting will ONLY make cooler.
Taking a break from doing up ranked units is an EXCELLENT idea. It will keep both projects fresh & interesting & stop the drudge-work-feel that army building induces. I look forward to seeing BOTH projects evolve! geek

Nice choice for the Chieftain. Makes my guy look like a midget. Sad

I'll be keeping an eye on this to possibly steal ideas for my own warband! Huzzah! Maybe I'll even get around to doing more work on my warband. I'm sure you'll still finish your whole Chaos army by the time I've got the next model finished. Rolling Eyes

@Tagnator
Cheers mate Smile

@DeafNala
Cheers Smile
Thats pretty much why i started this warband, i normally get kinda bored halfway thru making an army, so hopefully this willl keep me going.

@catferret
thanks Smile
I wish i could paint that fast Razz . hurry up with yours so i can steal ideas from you! your comp entry made me think how cool the marauder models can look, so that kinda helped me start these too.

And onto more WIP of the Chieftain


gotta finish the bone and the leathers, i was thinking about keeping the cape black, what do you reckon?

C&C always welcome Smile

If you intend to keep the cloak black, then I would add some interest to it by adding faded edges and dirt to the bottom of it.

Mix in a little Scorched Brown to the highlights for the whole thing, makes it seem more natural looking. Then use Kommando Khaki for the highlight stages but take it up lighter at the bottom edge to show where the dye has faded, and the edges have frayed.

Oh, and I'll start a thread here once I get a little more done on the Condemned model I started the other day. Wink

That is one NASTY PIECE OF WORK! affraid Suspect

As a Anti-Grime person, I like it JUST THE WAY IT IS! Save the grunge for 40K: Fantasy minis SHOULD look FANTASTIC, & yours DOES! The shield turned out VERY nicely after all yours doubts. Another SPLENDID mini; WELL DONE! thumbsup
Pretty clever that you based him in a similar manner to your army, which enables you to use him in both the army & the warband. Multipurposing IS the way! Suspect

@DeafNala

Very nice! I am especially interested in how youŽll portay the condemned.
I do have one question:
You go for the very heavily armoured look in your Chieftain and Champions, does your group play strictly "what you see is what you get"? Or do you have more leeway and simply go for what looks cool?

Cheers guys Smile

ummm abit of a mixture, most of us are fine without the wysiwyg. but what i normally do is go for what looks cool Razz plus after afew games( if im lucky) my warband is normally armed with what they have on the model. so the Chieftain will get some heavy/gromril armour sometime. Plus i gave the Champions and Chieftain a bigger/interesting look cause they would be the more stronger/well equipped in the tribe (so one would think). hope that answers somehow Smile

Very nice looking WIP shots. I haven't a clue what a Condemned ACTUALLY is [my PC refuses to do downloads, leaving BtB a place of mystery Suspect ], but he looks to be a nasty piece of work. This is going to be fun to watch; SO GET CRACKING! Suspect thumbsup

Deafnala: The Condemned is a guy who turned from one Chaos God in favour of another and is now being fought over by both gods. He is constantly mutating (random stats every round of combat).

Foot: Great job so far. Looks like the Champion needs to wax his back hair a bit first. Wink

I like the horn bursting through the helmet on the Condemned. My Condemned is a lot more understated. As if he his deity has started to win the battle and he has more control over the mutations (ie. gained some experience Wink ).

The minis is really great. I love the pose! thumbsup However, I'd like to point out that the Condemned is not allowed to wear weapons (no axe) or armour. pale

Oh yeah, you're right. Embarassed To me, having all attributes set and reaching 90 XP are in the same league of near impossibility, I guess. It does happen, but it depends on your gaming group. Chances are that someone will complete their objective before that happens...

yeah thats true, but you don't have to have them at their maximum though plus you only have to set 4 of them, so thats a good thing if you get the right rolls. Smile
