It's been a while since I've been here, but I suddenly realized you guys still existed!

Recently I've been to the Crisis wargaming/modelling event in Antwerp, Belgium. Great event, bought some super cool mini's as well. In fact, I've bought some mini's from different games just for the looks! And now I have those mini's and no clue what game to use them in lol! .

This is were you guys come in. I've been thinking to use the following miniatures as mordheim warbands, but not quite sure how. I've bought (among other stuff) the following (mind you, these pictures are borrowed from the internet):

1st. Fusiliers de Griffon. Amazing models from the confrontation series. I've only got one box with 6 gunners.

Was thinking of turning these guys into a nuln warband or something like that.

2nd. Manannan's Warriors, from the Celtos series (by i-kore, previously unknown to yours truly).

7 Rather simple straightforward kelt-ish warrios, armed with swords or axes. With some minor adjustments, they could pose as a Norse warband, or maybe some empire, perhaps even chaos?

So, if you were me, what sort of warband (if at all any) would you use these models for? All suggestions are open!

Nuln was the first thing I thought when I saw the first batch.
They would fit well in a Araby style setting I think.

The secound group would fit Maradars of Chaos

Well the minis you chose are VERY COOL! I have some of the Griffons myself; I thought they'd make GREAT Witch Hunters. The Celtos Barbarian would fit nicely with a Norse or Albion or Chaos. What a Face

Now then, this thread really belongs in the Painting & Modeling Section. You'll probably get many more responses there. SO off we go! clown

the celts could easily be from albion, or some backwater mountain province, not even really part of the empire. Use the middenheimer rules

@pervavita: Thnx for the reply. Guess I'm not the only one thinking in that direction then Smile

@deaf: Thnx for moving it! That witch hunter thing is a great suggestion! I will keep that one in mind. Don't know if the real witch hunter hats will fit these guys though. I need to find some dogs as well then. I will look into albion for the kelts! Norse and chaos were on my mind, but it never hurts to have choice.

@bernhardt: Liking the story thus far, been a while since I played middenheimers as well. Thnx for the suggestion!

FYI, I-kore went under years ago, they have re-surfaced as a different company a couple of times since then, the latest being Urban Mammoth, however the Celtos line of figures is now owned by brigade models (.co.uk).

Have fun.

Welcome back Khaine. I woul say the models looks like some more outback part of the empire , perhaps Nordland or Ostland? The guns and naked chests would seem like the folk from some villagehold in Ostland.

Have fun with them!

@maxxev: That explains a lot. Too bad some of those smaller companies won't hold ground. I really like the miniatures from this series. Had a bit of luck as well (bought the box with these kelts for only 5 euros), so I will enjoy building and perhaps converting them. Maybe I'll come across some others later on. Really hope so!

@Alex: The kelts are def. from the more "barbaric" parts of the empire. They look a bit muscular then the average empire soldier, I was therefore considering to put them in a norse warband. I will however look up on ostland or nordland, perhaps those match the description as well.

Thnx again for the suggestions everyone!

I also think that the Confrontation-Minis look very Witchhunter-ish. Unfortunately, witchhunters lack the entry for handguns in their equipment-list, making this use a little tough. Nuln is said to be rather overpowered, but you could just go for Mercs/Reikländer.
