My Frostgrave Illusionist's Warband

Recommended Posts

OUTSTANDING! The War Band is brimming with character AND BEAUTIFULLY painted & based. They would look FINE in Mordheim also. VERY WELL DONE!

Love it!  Great looking group.  I notice you picked the iconic witch, Feiya (from Pathfinder), as your apprentice.  She's my absolute favorite iconic and I think that figure is excellent (though my Bones version of her immediately became my daughter's new mini).

I like how the more "frontline" crew has more of a brown theme going and the characters who might avoid melee have more vibrant colors.  I always tend to think of warbands in some sort of common color theme, but given that your wizard just hires on those he can find to fill the roles, it does make better sense that they are in unique colors and costumes.

Cherowyn and Sister Elessa are my favorites paint-job-wise.

Again, excellent looking group!  Thanks for granting my wish to see your group  :=)

I'm glad you liked them!

I tried to give their outfits some thought...and like you said, I assumed the wizard hired who he could and didn't necessarily bother making matching clothes a requirement. I assumed the thugs are poorer types, so have more plain rustic clothes with just a hint of color here and there. The thieves, by nature of their profession choose dark and drab clothing that blends in with the shadows,though not necessarily of a cheap cloth or design, and the more heroic types are assumed to have more wealth and better opportunity to choose clothing that suits their personal tastes, and ego to some extent.

I have seen folks who color code their warbands, and I think that is a great idea if you plan to do a lot of demo or convention games where the players might not necessarily easily remember which figures are theirs in the middle of the battle. It provides a good visual clue.

Nice!!!

 

 

Maybe the poorer guys could be provided a ribbon or corsage with a colour to show to which warband they belong?

That way the Wizard might not blow up his own forces when there is a melee.

Very nicely done.

 

The gray mage on the far left...how did you paint that? I wonder if you could provide more photos of it? Perhaps with some tips? I need one of those.

revloc02-   Thanks!     The complete painting article, showing how I painted him, for this figure can be found here: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/01/anirion-wood-elf-wizard-figure-132-of.html

 

In the meantime, here are the final photos from the article:

Thanks, everyone, for the continued comments!

 

For those who would like to read about their adventures, I have started a campaign thread here:

http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/67532-frostgrave-campaign/

 

And since out last game we've had two new hires to the warband:  the crusty old treasure hunter, named Orwell (though his friends call him One-eyed-Jack, or just "Jack" for short; and the stern Marksman, named Danlin.

      Here you go, folks, my second of the four Warhammer warbands I've got (Here's the first). When I first started painting these, I was a bit worried about them looking just like a blob of gold, but I must say, I'm quite pleased with how the colors look. And that bird... That bird is my favorite. I tried speckling its breast and around its neck, but it just looks blotchy. Oh well.

      So, a coworker and fellow painter gave me a bunch of unwanted Warhammer Underworlds Shadespire minis, so uh... Guess that's mostly what you guys will be seeing from me in the near future!
       
      As I'm just naturally inclined to orcs, and these guys look absolutely awesome, I painted Ironskull's Boyz first. Also, finally got my hands on some premade washes, so I ditched homemade watered down paints on these. Personally, I think it made 'em look pretty good!


      The number of ants that tried to photobomb this shot was ridiculous.
       
       
      The lighting on the individual shots was being weird, so sorry if some are darker and other lighter!

      Presenting the 'Shroomancer, part of the Gooblapalooza set from Games Workshop who are all Goblin Wizards with different powers. This one alters the reality around him by getting really high on mushrooms, considering his "creations" appear to be attacking him this doesn't seem to be the most reliable of powers.
       
      Really pleased with how this one turned out, I think the super cartoony sculpt just gelled well with the way I paint.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
