Hello everyone! Some of you might remember me Smile I have not been very active when it comes to modelling or painting, but I am again determined to take up the knives and brushes. For a start, I have been re-basing my old pirate warband on round bases for AoS, and seeing as I did not have that many nice pictures in the original thread, and perhaps not even proper pictures of all of them, I thought I will just make a new one here in the gallery to show off the finished works. There is still a lot of room for improvement (painting and picture-taking wise), but I hope the quality is good enough to see some detail Smile

If you're interested in the creation process, here is the WIP thread: Scruvy Dogs WIP

And there are also some background stories and battle reports floating around, for example here: The Perilous Adventures of the Violet Tendencies

Anyway, time for some pictures!
The crew of the Violet Tendencies


The leaders of the crew: Captain Jack “Redbeard” Johnson, first mate Jiang Wei of Cathay, and second mate Ismail Fara-Tag


Cabin boy Martin the Monkey, cabin boy Jim Hopkins, Princess Sela, and the voodoo priest Kalboko


Gunner Samuel Eagle-Eye, blunderbussier Booming Bartholomew, gunner Gunther von Zahn, elite gunner Jan Jansen, purser Snorri Alekeg, and disgraced Slayer pirate Skadi Bluebeard


And lastly, bounty hunter Egill and the Violet Tendencies' navigator and master engineer Mad Shroom da Red


The River Strigany (from the Mutiny in Marienburg supplement)


Romed Rublev the domnu, Fränzli Vidal-Rublev the tinker, and Azalais de Marselha the petru


Lulu and Mandalin Rublev, truants, and Andrea di Stiani and Claudio di Olesi, fugitives


Elautario, bouncer (gypsy), Folquet Rublev the drunk grandpa (dead-eye), and Gaucelm Faidit the juggler (dead-eye)


That's it for now – let me know what you think (if you haven't seen them already). Once I improve the picture taking circumstances, I'll try to snap some better shots. There's also more pirate in the pipeline, and hopefully I will get around finishing the conversions and painting them at some stage.

PS: Captain Redbeard is looking to get himself a mount and also travel through the warp to the 41st millennium, so if any of you happen to have a couple of those heads spare, let me know Wink

Excellent stuff! Bags of character on both warbands, & some really nice conversion work. Each character (even henchmen) seems to have their own story, & probably a long one at that.

Thanks! They indeed all have their backstories, some of which I have written down in the thread linked above Smile I also noticed that I had forgotten a couple of pirates, so here they are.

Nkunda Gabé, bosun, Sela (again), and Silent Bill

Nice to see you back! Thanks for sharing your warband once more, because, as it seems, they were below my radar the first time around. I'd prefer looking at a warband like yours anytime over some CMON 9.5+ Space Marines I love you
May you find the time and energy to add some more members to your gangs!

cool warband, Eliazar. I would not have thought to ever say that, but I like the AoS rebasing. In your case! Wink
The old bases were a little too overdone for my taste and these now really work nicely with the miniatures.

So, now that you have touched the old warband.. is the fever back? will you do another warband? Very Happy

Thanks for the comments!

With regard to other warbands, I still need to paint my Cathayan pirates, and I still have a Merchant Caravan warband in the works.

Apart from that, I am mostly thinking about adding more pirate units so they become an actual army. Though I had the idea of making a Cult of Strohmfels themed possessed warband which could double as a unit of flagellants.
