Miniature Games Construction Yard

In this blog I'll talk about various miniature games. Custom miniatures and minor conversions are my favorite pastime. I'll cover scenery making and painting too. The WIP you'll see here is all about Necromunda, Epic 40,000, Warhammer Fantasy 5th Edition, Warmaster and Warhammer 40K 3rd Edition.

The Warmaster Trial Armies army list provides rules for summoning Valkyries. I really want to use these spectral female warriors in my Norse army. But there's a catch. You'll need a Norse Shaman with a special Chariot Mount. That's why I started gathering cheap bits and converting commenced.

An old High Elf chariot it the basis of my miniature. I had two spare horses with a Celtic attitude from I-Kore's Gaels.

The Shaman is a plastic Chaos Marauder from Games-Workshop with a staff from the Wood Elves sprues. His Horn of Resounding (to summon the Valkyries) is an Orc musician arm.

I konw his right hand is a bit off-scale. I'll paint it silvery to represent an armoured fist.
Only one thing left to add, a cape!

And now you're all wondering which miniatures I'll be using to represent the incomming horde of mounted Valkyries... I've seen Foundry Miniatures, but those women are all on foot. Then there are some great winged angels from Reaper Miniatures. But they're too expensive for a side-project like this. Bretonnian Pegassi with mounted Wood Elves crossed my mind too. But again, too costly...

3x Moonstar on Brightwind. (On 40mm square GW bases.) They'll be my mounted Viking women!
