Hey all,

I've been a long time lurker and just made my first post in the rules section. I figured since I started up an account, I should probably post pics of my current project. I'm playing Reikslanders for our group's winter Mordheim campaign. I'm proxying Rackham's Tir Na Bor dwarfs for them. They are a little bulky so they make easy targets. But... /shrug

I just love the models.

I have a few more finished now, but here's a shot of the first three I finished.



Let me know what you think!

wholly beans.

That is freaking awesome. You HAVE to write a tutorial on the smooth transitions for your nmm. It's freaking gorgeous.

And the bases are also extremely original. I love how some rocks extend past the top of the base (and touch the floor).

Bravo! Keep the pics coming!

Wow! Thanks for the response!

Yeah. I'm really happy with the way they've turned out. The bases are a bit of a pain to make so for the last couple of henchmen I haven't been going quite that nuts. I'll still go the distance for my heros, though.

I love the Rackham stuff but to be honest, the models are large-ish and have so many big pointy things sticking out that they get the crap shot out of them. =P

It makes for interesting games. My main opponent plays a Dwarf Treasure Hunter band and is a really good player. He's way shooty with loads of xbows and a bunch of 4 BSs. Makes life tough. Campaign play is all about the post-game, though. Too much fun! =)

Thanks again and I'll post more pics when I take them.

Reiklanders? Why them? If you want a warband to proxy with those rough and tough looking dwarfs, I think Orcs would be more fitting.

Funny you should say that. I thought seriously about orcs. Orcs and Dwarfs both, actually. We have a small gaming group and we already had both Orcs and Dwarfs. I wanted to do something to add in more variety.

Plus, I want to do an Orc warband with TONS of goblins. I'm going to use Rackham orc and gobbo models for that band, too. It probably won't be 'til next winter, though.

Those models are abso-freakin'-lutely amazing, too. LOVE 'em!

Got a couple more painted. The new guys are henchmen with hammers. I'm going to work on some heros next. =)

Any comments and tips or suggestions are really very appreciated. Also, you can find bigger individual pics in my CMON gallery.

Anyway... I hope you like the new guys.

These, too, look crazy perfect like the first ones. They have a very special and unique style. I like them a lot!

Tip: You will probably get more votes, ie more people will find the warband, if you type Mordheim correctly instead of the typo that seems to be common among those who don't call it "Mord-hime" (which is how an Imperial city's name should be pronounced, based on the German languange) but "Mord-heem".

Spectacular! I thought I had posted on this thread before to say just that, but it seems I haven't, so I'll say it again.

Spectacular!

Beautiful shading, fantastic use of colours, and the bases are excellent. A lot of love, attention, and skill have gone into these models, and it shows.

Brilliant models.

Hey guys!

Thank you very much for the comments. I haven't really ever had anyone ask me to write a tutorial or anything. I have to say though, the amazing painters that take the extra time to share their techniques with other in the form of DVDs or online tutorials are inspiring people. They are like the saints of our hobby.

I may try to work up a 'how to' on how I did this Mordheim band. To be honest, I'd feel a little awkward doing it, but I take the request very, very seriously. In the mean time, I want to point people toward a couple tutorials by the most influential painter in recent years (don't want to forget the McVeys!!!) for me. His name is Sebatian Archer and not only is he one of the more amazing painters that I've ever seen, he is one of the most sharing and helpful elites out there.

Here are two articles by Seb (Automaton on the Aussie forums and on CMON):

http://www.coolminiornot.com/article/aid/757

The whole articles section on CMON has been a great help to me, actually. I hope everyone else finds it helpful.

And he (automaton) is an amazing sculptor, too. I recently admired his smith on the OZ forum and then the painted one on CMON.

He's a really nice guy, too. He took the time to not only comment on some of my pieces, but actually went out of his way to PM me with some suggestions on how to kick it up a notch.

Captial guy and a VERY good teacher through his tutorials.

WOW!
They look like they escaped [hacked their way out more likely Suspect ] from the Works of Wonder that inhabit the Rackham catalogues. VERY COOL minis AND INCREDIBLY WELL PAINTED! BRAVO! ENCORE! thumbsup
