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.

      I finally finished some of my Ridgeback Miniatures Gundabad Orcs and Goblin Mercenaries as well as some GW Cave Trolls.

      Awhile back I was inspired by a gamer on the internet who had converted some Goblins into Gnomes. So I decided to try something similar but with my own style. Unsurprisingly, after I did this I found several other folks online had had similar ideas as well. Including JFA of Hagglethorn Hollow fame.

      A bit of greenstuff and a change in the usual colors… presto! Gnomes instead of Goblins.
       
      In hindsight if I was doing this again I think I would use different arms, weapons and shields on the two melee models but otherwise I am pleased with how they came out. Of course they are rather big Gnomes.
       
      The next Gnomes I convert will be from Wargames Atlantic Halfling Militia….

      Presenting Brutogg Corpse-Eater, my first finished adventurer from the game Cursed City by Games Workshop.
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this guy, I experimented by giving him grey-hued skin to represent his unhealthy eating habits (he eats zombies) and it worked better than I thought it would.
      Annoyingly though, I had to leave the bits under his coat unpainted (just couldn't get a brush up there), nobody will notice unless they turn him upside down, but it still bothers me that he's technically "Unfinished".
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      I recently acquired the latest of Games Workshops Warhammer Quest games:- The Cursed City.
      I'd actually like to completely paint one of these things for once, and thought a project thread might help!
       
      First, I built everything (Well, maybe everything. Games Workshop continues to be kinda weird about this game, so I'm not sure if it's getting expansions or not):-
       
       
       
      And then made a spreadsheet. I can't batch paint, so even simple minis (like the rats and skeletons) I've put in small groups to help maintain momentum.
      I rolled a 5 (actually I rolled a 30 and then a 32, but I know this project is doomed if I start with a rat pile instead of something interesting):- Brutogg Corpse-Eater, unusual Ogre:-
       

       
      I've made him a simple base (I've been spoilt by all the integral ones I've been dealing with lately), mostly sand with some broken flagstone patches made of putty, and gave him the usual White Primer and Brown Wash undercoat.
      Leaving him to dry overnight.

      Finished this a little while ago, but it wasn't until just recently where I was able to get it into an area that's large enough, and has even enough lighting (whoo, b-day gift of a 24" cube light box and lights!)
       
      This is the terrain element that was included in the Warhammer 40,000 Battle for Macraggae boxed starter set.
