Sculpted Barbarian Warband

Recommended Posts

So, I recently ran across a couple of bodies I'd created simply in an attempt to work on my basic sculpting of anatomy. I decided to sculpt one of them into a barbarian. Shortly after, I started giving him a barbarian buddy. Then, I grabbed a discarded sculpt realizing he'd make a great barbarian shaman. Before I knew it, I was creating a warband. I made 11 total members, so I can either have a spare (for when I inevitably have deaths) or I can just have them set up camp in an inn.

First off, here's the whole crew.

Next up, we have Grim Windreaver and his apprentice Kyryelle Bloodmoon.

Of course, they need some meatshileds to keep them safe, so we have Ulf Strom, Sig Bloodseeker, and Dern Crookedblade.

Then, they'll need speedy and sneaky types to haul off treasure, so our thief/treasure hunter types are Derna Crookedblade (Dern's sister), Wyn Swiftblade, and Thrayde Rawfang.

And finally, archers to rain a volley of arrows down on our foes. We have Sterno Warhawk, Yng Razorbow, and Yvara Shang.

Looking over them, it's pretty obvious to me, anatomy-wise, which ones were earlier practice sculpts and which ones I did more recently. That's encouraging!

I'm looking forward to getting these guys painted up and ready to go.

Hope you enjoyed them. Comments and constructive criticism always welcome :=)

Very nice! And a great way to use old practice models! Thay make a nice scruffy band of barbarians. If I had to make a constructive criticism, I'd say some of them look a little spindly, like they could use a bit more meat on their bones.

 

Like KruleBear, I'm also eager to see them painted up.

 

Great names, too!

A very unique style. Now they need some paint! Lol ::):

Thanks! I'm looking forward to throwing paint at them...once I find enough time :=/

Yeah, the spindly ones are some of the examples of earlier sculpts working on anatomy where I hadn't gotten it quite right. To my mind, it kind of made sense that a roming, nomadic band ending up being way-underdressed for the frozen lands would also struggle to find enough food there. See? I can create story to justify sculpting issues ;=)

 

 

Thanks, everyone, for looking, liking, and commenting.

May not have been what you're going for, but it reminds me of early Greek depiction of figures. Like what you see on pottery or depictions of early Olympic games.

This is rather amusing, but I had actually been thinking of referring to this warband as "The Barbaroi" as it was the Greek term for "foreigners" and we get our term "barbarian" from that Greek root. (Yes, social studies teacher nerdism just happened) Now that you've made the Greek art association, that proves that name was destined to work ;=)

Thanks for the feedback!

I'll be getting this crew to the painting table sometime soon...

The Barbarian Lads & Lasses are WONDERFULLY whimsical with a charm more state of the art miniatures often lack. OUTSTANDING WORK!

Many thanks! I'm glad you enjoy the character in the characters ;=) Of course, since you seem to have cornered the market on whimsy, that makes the compliment even more meaningful :=)

Good work on them.

Thanks, wolf! I've gotten started throwing paint on them. I may do a work in progress, but I kind of forget to stop and take pictures, so it would be more of a sporadically neglected thread of infrequent updates rather than a work in progress. Maybe a this-doesn't-work in progress?

      Not sure if this belongs here or under conversions but since I need help/feedback on the sculpting, I figured here was better. 
       
      I am adding puffy sleeves to a figure and I am very much a novice when it comes to sculpting. I have been working on one and while it looks good to me, I need a second opinion. What do you guys think?

      "Way I hear tell, ain't no percentage in gettin' the Cactus Folk riled up. They don't shoot easy and wrasslin' 'em won't end well for ya."

      Sculpted a gumby-esque Saguaro Vaquero and a zaftig Cactus Dryad for Weird West purposes. (Though if I ever run a game set in New Crobuzon, they'd work there too.)
      Legs are stubby and bell-bottomed, skin rugose, arms long and segment-jointed. The cowpoke's rope is twisted wire.
       


      The Dryad's hair was intended to be Crested Saguaro, but heck, Opuntia works too. The pistol hand came from my bits box, I forget what sprue originally. Probably Chronoscope of some kind.

      I don't know *exactly* where she falls on the SFW line (is a plant really nude if it's not flowering? Curves, but nothing explicit as I understand it) so I'll compromise on Spoilers for now and delete images if need be.

      Malak breathed the cold air and smiled. This day had been long coming. The journey to the Frozen City had been difficult, wizards of his like had difficulty procuring supplies in the so called civilized lands, even in the rough towns near Felstad. Still, goblins could adapt to any situation and this one was no different. The eclectic band he had managed to scrape together stood with him now on the outskirts of the ancient ruin, ready to stake their claim at the riches that lie within. His first in command was his apprentice Grubb a Weiben goblin from the Reaping lands to the south.
      After him was Murdo an infantrygoblin of the Heartstabber tribe of Impact Crater in the Oldhammer Mountains, and a likely candidate for leadership over the rest should it be required.

      Polg and Mog were Manorheim goblins from just north of the Reaping lands and reasonably useful with a bow and axe, respectively.


      Gik and Moosh were from a nearby Bighead tribe. While both were foolish creatures, Gik was good with his bow and Moosh was quick with his feet and his dagger.

      They were also good with animals. Fearful and mistrusting of dogs they had brought with them giant rat creature they had tamed and named Squeaker.



      His final member was a brute of a goblin named Malg from the Thunderbolt Mountains.



      Louts and fool’s the lot of them, but competence cost gold, and that was coming soon. Besides if they die, at least he'll be able to buy better help on the next excursion.

      Unfortunately, Murdo had been less competent than hoped, dying shortly after impaling the "mouse wizard" on his spear. The Manorhiem goblins suggested calling in a trap expert from their village by the name of Grinner. Hopefully this one will prove more useful.

      Here is antithetical recent model that I have finished in a push to clear my lead pile. 
       
      He is an official Templar for Frostgrave. He will be used with my other Reaper models.

      Just a quick speed paint to boost my painted numbers.  These where painted back in March.
      The are all pumped up to pound some adventures.  I do find it funny the similar stance for being created by 3 different manufacturers.
