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.

Staying North

Now with my Ogre Kingdoms army finished I wish to stay in the North Lands of the Old World. I'll continue work on my Norse army. There is still quite some regiment building to do. As usual I don't just go for GW-only miniatures. Over the years I have collected various Norse-looking miniatures from various brands. Now's the time to combine them all into one coherent looking army. To achieve this I will be using the Warmaster Trial Army list and go from there.

The regiments (or units as they are called in Warmaster) I need are the following: Bondsmen, Berserkers and Huntsmen. Each unit will need 12 miniatures based on 25mm round slottabases.

The Bondsmen:
For the formation of two Bondsmen units I gathered a bunch of miniatures from various publishers like Hasslefree, Rackham, i-Kore, Foundry, Citadel and others.

The Berserkers:
The eye-catcher and leader of my Berserker unit will be a HeroQuest Polar Bear. He'll be surrounded by Foundry and Rackham warriors among others. All are selected to look ferral or at least wear fur.

The Huntsmen:
This small unit of 9 miniatures will be built with BattleMasters Chaos Thugs and some freebies from the CRISIS Convention in Antwerp, Belgium.

It woudln't be a Warhammer Fantasy Battle army if it didn't include some special monsters or creatures. The Norse have access to Snow Trolls and Ulfwereners. What follows now are "counts as" units. I'll be using miniautres that are visually different but ruleswise they'll fit perfectly.

The Ulfwereners:
I wanted to use my metal Rackham Wolfen for a long time. They're great, they're heavy, and they're from a currently dead game. So I'll include three of them in each of my two Ulfwerener units. Is there a better miniature than a Wolfen to represent wolfmen? I did find some cheap plastic Wolfen too. They allow me some variation.

The Snow Trolls:
These creatures were first published in the Citadel Journal magazine. It sounds reasonable to have snowcreatures in a Norse army, so I'll add them to my warband too. The miniatures originate from the board game WOW: Burning Crusade. A cheap source of cool* miniatures. (* Pun intended.)
