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.

      Wanted to continue working on my Underworld stuff, but didn't fancy the last two minis I had left in the previous thread, so thought I'd roll them into a new one.
       

       
      This time we've got 10 randomly chosen minis, the two dudes from the last thread and the whole Sea Elf team (They felt too fragile to pack away after I built them).
       

       
      Here we have Cyrille and Celine (A pair of Elven Peacekeepers) and Snoz a Goblin Scout with his wolf Fang.
       

       
      This set consists of Zellotl (Lizardman Warrior), Freshly Awake (a newly risen Skeleton), Frilna (a companion beast to the Fey Elves), Sorcha (battle-hardened Mercenary) and Ailithir (Evil Knight).
       

       
      Yrkill and Jafari (from the previous thread) plus their companions Sigmundur and Sethos (because someone or something is determined to have me paint these particular teams). Sethos isn't an Underworlds figure but is a matching Cultist from the OOP Warhammer Quest:- Silver Tower game on an old resin base I found.
       

       
      And this is the Sea Elf team.
      We've got Gaelin (he's a Fish), Tanjaya (the Warrior at the back), Indra (a Summoner), Surya (a Harpooner with no eyes) and Orym (he's a Crab).
       
      Making a start on Sorcha:-
       

       
      Painted the furry collar on her cape.
      It's a base of Cold Grey with a Black Wash and the drybrushes of Cold Grey, Ghost Grey and Off-white (Only on the upper shoulder bits).
       
      Not sure if I should paint her head next or the armour that's close to it, either way I think I'll make a mess.

      Presenting the Swamp Orc Standard Bearer, he's part of one of the newer factions in Games Workshop's Age of Sigmar range.
       
      Really happy with this one and I had a lot of fun painting all his chunky detailing!
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Any Spaceport bar, where hard-bitten adventurers gather, will have a regular willing to regale strangers with tales of Lady Vulnavia's exploits, and most of the tales contain a reason behind her always veiled face. Is she secretly an exiled alien princess, or was she badly scarred duelling the King of the Space Pirates? Only the Lady knows and she's not telling.
       
      Presenting Lady Vulnavia, woman of mystery and leader of the Starstriders. She was part of the (now OOP, I think) Killteam:- Rogue Trader boxset from Games Workshop.
       
      Not one of my best paintjobs, but I'm still pretty happy with how she turned out.

      As I mentioned in the thread on the Captain with Terminator Honours, here is the best painted Dreadnaught I have done, the trident symbol on the  front is the chapter insignia. Let me know what you think!

      I thought it would be cool to show off an older model I painted, this one is a vintage Space Marine Captain, painted in the colours of my own Chapter, the Sons of Poseidon.
       
      Comments and criticisms always wanted, let me know what you think! The model was painted using Army painter paints.
