I'm working on putting together a Nuln Gunners warband and have run into a wall. Anyone out there have any suggestions for a model to represent the warband's Instructor with a hand-held mortar? I've been searching and thus far haven't seen anything even remotely close, so...help! Very Happy

There is a bit with what is now called the "Freeguild Outriders" that represents a handheld mortar. Can be seen here on the champion:

You should have no hard time finding it on ebay bitzshops, but you got to build the mini yourself.
BTW Black Chapel has some nice minis for a Nuln warbad (but no mortar I' afraid)

Ooooo, that bit is EXACTLY what I'm looking for! The models themselves I should be good on, it was just the darned mortar that has been giving me fits. Thanks!

You're welcome. Don't forget to show us your warband once it's fully assembled! thumbsup

Ok, so there has been a bit of flipflopping, but I finally got all the minis in that were ordered. Now that everyone is assembled, the painting can start!

Bit of a sidenote: I'd been running the band for a few games now (via proxying with other models), and we have built up a bit of a presence within the campaign to date. Of particular note was the event that occurred in our 2nd game, when a random encounter triggered the appearance of an ogre merc who (as most will know) joins the wb with the lowest rating. Thus far, his upkeep has been a mite painful on the financial side of things, but oh boy does having that massive mountain of flesh between my skinny gunners and the enemy REALLY help hahaha.

Without further ado:

Actually, I'm just going to use the blunderbuss that's on the center model as a 'counts as' mortar. I like the overall look of the design and feel it fits the general theme a bit better.

The downside now is that no one wants to play the gunners since I added the ogre haha. He seems to be intimidating everyone Razz

Thanks! I wanted to have a bit of fun with this warband, so there's a mix of three different manufacturers there...GW (of course), Raging Heroes, & Avatars of War (the Ogre...who I *really* like).
