Fresh from their latest Kickstarter, here are some Mercenaries from MOMMiniaturas. They're really making me want to play Mordheim again.
A Witch Hunter type:
A self-portrait that I had to get as an add-on:
A very obvious remake of one of Mordheim's first special characters, Johann the Knife:
The rest of the Empire-style mercenary scum:
Hm. I seem to have merely blocked the cocks. Need some smooth gradient work maybe.
I belive this to be a new, digital sculpt for the Bones 4 KS.
Reaper Miniatures, Bones 4 KS 2017
Sculpted by ??
30mm round lipped base
should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future
Arnold is a bit on the short side, isn't he? Or is that perhaps Brienne the Beauty's taller sister?
I have cut off the integral bases, as I like them all to have similar base styles, and the Bones bases are all over the place.. Even though some of the newer oval ones are nice, in the end they just had to go.
So recently one of my wargaming friends has been really trying to get someone in our group to kitbash together some Imperial Guard Rough Riders. Not exactly sure why he doesn't just build some and I had decided to just ignore him when inspiration hit. While hanging around some GW kit bashing forums I came across an image.
I have absolutely no idea where this image actually came from, it was a repost of a repost. In the end it didn't matter though, I knew I could pull off something similar and more importantly I could build most of the project using only pieces on hand. Only needing wheels and bases means these will be very cheap to make.
After getting lucky on eBay I have a ton of guardsmen, but ten of them just don't fit my current army. They do however fit this project perfectly. Step one was getting them off their bases and that GW plastic melting glue really made that hard. Luckily I was able to get them all detached without injuring myself.
The rest came together really quickly. I swapped out some arms, trimmed some sprue pieces, raided my bits bags, and trimmed down some toothpicks. Here is my final result.
Now the search for wheels begins.
So this is the first time I tried painting freehand on the shield This is the end result of the conversion:
And for the conversion part, I didn't like neither this minis pose, nor its weapon choice (pickaxe really???), nor its commie looking (???) sigil on the shield. So I removed the weapon and sanded the shield. I also think that his pose looks a lot more natural as a spear throw than a pickaxe swing.. Also gave him some simple terrain and a quick paint Thanks for looking!
