I have been quite inspired by the works of both Tammy and Kari and the old miniatures they have been painting. So with the Corona virus forcing me to stay home I thought it would be as good a time as any to dig up some of the old miniatures in my collection.
I decided to focus on making a small company of soldiers from the Empire. As a little twist the army will be set during the Time of the Three Emperors. Most famous for being the time of Mordheim. This will allow me to not only play Warhammer Fantasy Battles, something that I have never done, but also smaller skirmish games like Empire in Flames.
First up I have a few flagellants. I was not quite sure about the comical hands and feet of the Marauder flagellants, but they have such wonderful character and expressions that I didn’t mind. A couple of miniatures from the Mordheim Witch Hunters were also included in the group. All in all it will be a small troop of about ten flagellants and mad men.
Next up is an old wandering ogre, stunted in growth and mocked by his fellows. This is a warrior from Golgfag’s Second Regiment of Renown, the only member that I own. But I also have a couple from Golgfag’s third incarnation that will be included.
And finally, I had to include a company captain. This tired old dandy is a Mordheim Witch Hunter, repurposed as a great sword. If I can track down enough interesting miniatures with great swords I might make a company of them. But for now he leads the rabble.
