This is my Carnival of Chaos warband. So far ive used it in a mini-campaign, but plan to play it in an upcomming ongoing campaign im starting with a group of freinds.
For balance and more interresting gameplay, Nurgle's Rot has been changed to work like this: Nurgle's Rot

This Warband is made 100% with bits and minis i had around the house, bought as part of shopping frenzies and the like.

Well now for the pics.

First of all, my proud leader Stronzo. In the story we're running he is the barstard child of a Nobleman, who were cast out and made his living by training rats to perform in a "Ratcircus". His crazed halfbrother Sir Nicolas, the leader of my girlfreinds Reiklanders and he are sworn enemies. Funny thing is, that during the mini-campaign the two never acctually met (had line of sight) so the story are still at its beginning.

Carnival Master: Stronzo

Next up are the Brutes. I never liked the mutated brute from Games Workshop and wanted them to look way more "human"

Brute: Bubo

Brute: Miss Pox

Next up, the Plague Bearers. As siad above, all i used here was minis i had allready. So yellow bloodletters were the best solution Wink

Plague Bearers: Pus & Vomere

And the Nurglings (Snotlings)

Nurglings: Frigus Pupas

And now, a bunch of brethren Smile

Brethren: Les Tumore
Brethren Hero: Inflamatio (the bald lady)

And the final Heroes. The Tainted Ones. I felt really lucky to have these models for the project Very Happy

Tainted One: Morbo
Tainted One: Pestis

And finally, my scratch-build Plague Cart. I never got to field it in the last campaign but it really makes the warband stand out in the displaycase Very Happy

Stronzo, a beautiful warband - in a suitably chaotic way! Your leader ha s more than a hint of insanity about him, and the brethren continue this theme! Great work.

Thanks for the kind words guys Smile
By the way the story of the halfbrother, Sir Nicolas can now be found Here.
Im still working on my own fluff text for the warband. Our gaming group are all Larp'ers and P&P players so we cant help but to add some RP elements to our Mordheim games Smile

VERY WELL DONE! You've got quite an interesting mix of minis that all work together WONDERFULLY...I'll be using quite a few Wyrd minis in my Spooky Forest Project also; the Dark Age minis have got me thinking about further possibilities...thanks. thumbsup

Excellent work! I never really liked the look of GW's carnival, but yours rocks! Quick question: where is Miss Pox from?

good looking warband. Very subtle chaotic look, original for a nurgle gang since most nurgle minis are so bloated and overtly chaotic. The plague cart brings the lovecraftian horror to the party in a very cool way.

It is fun to sometimes try to build a warband from just the minis you have lying around, forces you to be creative and look at them in a new way. Very well done!

The Malifaux minis look great, and really fit in well with a CoC warband. Nice use of assorted bits for the Cart. Keep up the good work!
