Marienburgers, and a goblin…

Mordheim is a spin-off of the Warhammer universe, a skirmish ruleset where warbands battle in the wrecked city of Mordheim. While the game is not anymore visibly suported by Games Workshop, its various versions have a dedicated fanbase.

Marienburgers in Mordheim, as in Warhammer, are always colorful to paint, and I decided to push it with this little warband. These are the first members of the warband, but there will be more.

The head of the warband, a lost noble from Marienburg – his past surely dark, shameful and unknown to his companions. One of the miniatures of the Heroic Fighters of the Known World, Sir Brut. I have a few more of the same set, waiting in the lead pile… Superb Jes Goodwin work.

One of the heavy hitters of the warband, grizzled veteran and expert with the double-handed sword. This is a superb miniature, full of personnality (the night bonnet!) and very well sculpted. It is a Marauder “Fighter Command”. The sculptor is Ally Morisson, who has done more than big monsters. This fighter command is especially splendid.

The third figure is a Marauder dwarf handgunner. Here again, loads of character. The sculptor would be either one of the Morrisons, or more probably Colin Dixon.

And finally, the warband’s “brain”: an old Grenadier wizard. No reference here unfortunately…

That’s it for now. There is more on my desk, Marauder and Citadel mostly…

AND to end up this series: a nice Kevin Adams Night Gobin. One of the smallest miniature I ever painted… Tiny little bugger, with a mean smile.
