As luck would have it, I think I am going to be able to get my small warband up and running without the need to to any converting. Once I get going with a few games, I suspect that will change, but for now, here are the models that I have selected to represent each of my characters.
Though I have my doubts about the effectiveness of a small force, at least with a range of characters, you have a much greater potential for narrative. I already have plenty of ideas about the Soulshrivers' backstory, which I intend to share with you all at a later date. I don't know about you, but when I paint a character model, his or her story slowly forms in my mind as the layers of paint build up. So I will have a much better who these chaos worshippers are, what ambitions they may have and where exactly they came from.
Here are the models I selected this morning.
|Here's the model I'll use for Dieter, a fairly common sorcerer from 1986. Jes Goodwin sculpted this example if I recognise the style.|
|Jes Goodwin's chaos ogre. This needs no introduction. Classic. Perfect for Karl the Uncouth.|
What do you readers think of my choices? All I have to do know it think about colour schemes, my colour palette and how I will do the bases. As I have far less models than I was expecting, I am going to lavish some time and energy on these miniatures, using some of Andy Craig's tips hopefully. I want to try and capture the feel of Slaves to Darkness Slanneshi painting, so expect lots of electric blue and titillating pink.
