Long hearing from me, but here I am with new army idea.

I'd like to make and Razig army this month.

Here I'll be sharing all army ideas and build and paint progress.


Note: this is gonna be all 100% proxy army, I doubt I would buy any reaper mini for this army. This is supposed to be budget army made from bitz left from other minis (sorry reaper you don't provide that), but with high hobby factor. So lots of good painting here and 100% WYSYWIG. Also I'll be trying to keep my minis close to original in that pirate theme.

I'm not anti-reaper I have some beautifull darkreach models and some tottaly random reaper ones still in painting progress, but I have some undead models left so thats why I picked Razig.


So here we go.


I'm still gone need to order some minis or at least parts for them. Mainly for Salty Sabres, Scurvy Dogs, and Weresharks.

I'm also going to make special set of bases for them.

I already have zombies, skeletons, ghouls and some dwarven cannons. I'll start this project next week.

If you give the undead pirate caps or bandannas, few with muskets pistols and rifles and other accessories, it could look really good.


Personally I would use most of the razig miniatures, but proxies, too.


I don't like to have salty saber more than once, but saw him in army lists very often more than once, so I would get the following ones as salty saber proxies:

I'm going to make about 10 salty sabres for my army. I'll go for same amount of zombies, and 2 maybe 3 heroes, and some elites including scurvy dogs and sea hag.

This part of my army would be all about Dead Men Tell No Tales Doctrine. So max models with Nauseating SA.

Also I want to make it something like no skeleton list. Of course this is impossible coz the leaders has to be skellies, but all other skellies would go in the second part.


I'll start as soon as I get some parts for scurvy dogs and sabres, which should be this week.


Also we play with no warlord models. Warlords are too powerful. We had like one or to battles and it looked like all minis were killed by our warlords with ease and then there was a warlord challenge. So we decided to go with captains and sergeants only. This is far more interesting. But there are some problems with damage reduction 2 models. My fried uses them every game in every of his 2 armies (dwarfs and gnomes). I hate this, but when well played I'm able to kill those monsters, and yet win the game.


And just a fast note about basing my models. I'm going to make wooden planks on all bases. Normal models would get nothing special on these bases, but all elites would have something like extra planks, wooden parts of ship and stuff, while leaders would have anchors to make them stand out.

I don't know the rules, but I think it would be better not to fight till the end or use campaign goals where deaths are not the most important goal. Is it possible with warlord? I still don't have the rules.


10 Salty Sabers? Thats much. I think few Bathalian's could be modified easily to be salty sabers.


Does anyone know how to get cheap crab like body parts or from other sea animals?


I'm really curious about how your modifictions will look like.


I think I will use sand as salt crystals, which are growing out of the body or on him. But before I start with razig, I will need to continiue to paint my Deadtech Robots and Ghostly Pirates!!!


Does anyone have pictures of water corpses? I would really like to paint zombies more like water corpses. (I think it is better a question for a new thread.)

OK I was screwed by store. They did not sent me the minis up to this date and furthermore they say they have no idea why, but the manufacturer has not sent minis to them yet.

So I've started another army. This plog is suspended until I get minis. No idea when, but I'll let you know.

      I got a skeleton as part of a job lot of Tomb Kings soldiers. It was neatly painted but missing an arm. I used the chain and cutlass from the Reaper Razig weapons sprue, and made a hat out of green stuff. The missing left arm is from the Frostgrave cultists sprue.
      I'm no sculptor but the hat was really easy. I just followed a YouTube video. The base was again just modelling paste for sand, then mod podge for the water.

      Have finished off these skeleton pirates. They are all Reaper minis from the Razig faction in the Warlord line. 
      Really enjoyed painting these. I worked up from a cream paint spray and a sepia wash. Lots of brighter but desaturated colours for the cloth and lots of rust and brass tones for the metal. The bases are resin, from a company called MVP. I used a sepia wash again at the end of the process and then an all over drybrush with beige. 
      The plan is to pit these against the orc pirates I have been working on. I also have some Freebooter Fate minis and some dwarf and halfling pirates from elsewhere. Plus a load of Reaper pirates. Aaaargh.

      Am cracking on with some opposition to my orc pirates. These are the Razig warlord pirate minis. The bases are resin (they are meant to depict trenches but think they will work here). Have sprayed them all with Army Painter skeleton bone. Then a sepia ink wash all over for definition and a process of going through and colouring in. Am going to add a cannon as well. Am going for quite a colourful scheme, that will be muted by the pre shading and then dusted up with an all over drybrush of off white.

      Hey all, I thought I'd share a little guide on how I converted two Weapons and Warriors pirate ships for gaming. These guys are usually for sale at a reasonable price ($25-30) on ebay as part of the W&W Pirate Battle game. They have the added bonus of coming with two smaller boats and lots of good extras like cannons and palm trees.

      Here is the unmodified ship. First I clipped the little extra bits that are for the W&W game, and then I puttied over any gaps.

      Then I gave the whole ship a couple of coats of brown primer. For terrain and other projects like this, I usually use Krylon primer. It does just fine when there is not a lot of small details to obscure. I primed the sails white. The main mast, mizzen mast, and bowsprit all detach.
      I picked out some detail colors and painted the decks a lighter color. The ships turned out like this:

      The two small ships and the two boats in the foreground are from W&W. The big ship in the back is a resin model.
      If you are looking for some ships for your games, this might be the way to go!

      After finishing my Darkreach warband I'm moving to Razig.
      I have almost all minis I need to build my army.
      I would need your help on this project on both look and army lists. I have never used Razig in battle and I'm not going to use it untill I have fully painted playable army.
      The good thing is that we play at low ponts. So army of 500 is fully playable. but I hope to start with about 800pts.
      So before I'll post pictures of minis I need to warn you. This would be 100% unofficial models.
      The most of this army would be made using minis and bits I bought some time ago and put them away at attic.
      Yes this would be a way to recycle them. But I would stick as close as possible to Reaper minis look and try to keep same atmosphere around the army.
      This army has one of my favorites play styles, and I'm not talking about shooting models. The dead fish doctrine. This is my thing. Pass DIS or you wont attack!
      I'll write some more on this soon, stay tuned.
