So... another thread.
Well there's a story behind this one. Originally I was looking for something as a side project to my Fallout stuff. The toss up was between Skyrim, Metro 2033 and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. The later won out as I didn't want the hassle of starting up a whole new fantasy terrain project and a tunnel system board would have been a headache too.
Frostgrave's come around though and, being rather silly, I thought that I'd get into another system. Without so much for caring about the practicalities of throwing together even more minis and terrain. I'll probably be playing against guys with their regular fantasy forces, unlike with my other two threads where I provide all the models during games. However that's not to say that I won't make the usual tat for this out of principle
Anyhow. To start off this thread I'm taking a trip to Vvardenfell and presenting a warband made up of Dunmer. I may stick to just that province or branch out, but for the moment that's my focus. =P
From left to right:
> A thug wearing regular Dunmer clothes with a Redoran Watchman helm and a chitin club.
> An infantryman wearing chitin armour and carrying a chitin spear.
> A Telvanni apprentice mage wearing the robes of his House and a Mole Crab Helm.
> A Man at Arms wearing House Dres Bonemold Armour and armed with a steel cutlass.
> And a thug wearing Netch Leather Armour and wielding an iron axe.
That's my merry band as they are right now. Still clearly WIPs, though I'll post up better shots of each as they're painted. They're all Fireforge Games Steppe Warriors that I happened to have had sitting about for ages with some greenstuff chucked on.
Still to do is to add more soldiers to the band (I'm sitting at 370 gp out of 500, so that's probably some more guys in Bonemold and Chitin or an archer) and to make the leading Wizard (who I'm considering having a bit more armour than the Apprentice and perhaps armed with a Glass or similarly snazzy looking weapon).
There's what I have to start with though, and hopefully I'll gradually expand on this till I have plenty of models to chop and change the roster. Morrowind's still my favorite game of the series, and there's plenty that I'd like to make models of out of it. For the moment though there's the petty bandits and sellswords. Maybe one day (if I can stick with this and not get distracted) all sorts of crap'll turn up here (hey I can think of a construct or two to stand in as Frostgrave's golems...).
Started on a House Guard riding a Durzog too. ...Before I discovered that there aren't rules for mounted units. Woops. Houserule it! Looks a bit like this, but its too early a WIP to show.
