After sorting out the rank and file
bulls cows for the Little Death tribe as a tester, I felt that I ought to put a bit more work into the command group. Luckily I am now liberally endowed with unused bits and pieces from the Mournfang Cavalry and Ironblaster kits, which allow for a certain amount of kit bashing. Of course, the main work was ‘feminising’ them, as usual.
Hmmm, it looks like the musician is a bit shy.
Anyway, the champion is wearing a Mournfang Cavalry head, weapon, ironfist and gut plate, and an Irongut arm. I feel that the skull ear-ring is a particularly cool bit of work from the sprue.
The standard bearer is mostly the original kit, though she does sport a weapon and head from the Mournfang box. I’ll attach the banner once the painting is complete. The hair I’ve sculpted onto this one is probably the most satisfying I’ve done so far. I like the way it lies across the shoulder.
The musician actually has an instrument to play, courtesy of the Mournfang Cavalry (and a bit of cutting as the vambrace comes attached to the hand). The sword is also from the Mournfangs (I think it’s meant to be for the champion), and the head is the less armoured of the two from the Ironblaster.
I’m looking forward to painting this lot as I feel like they have a lot of character. So far I’ve been playing them six-strong in case I get the Watchtower scenario, but I’m not sure that they can take being in such a small unit if they’re in the main battleline. So far they have tended to take a bit of a hammering before their turn comes; admittedly they hit back fairly nicely too if I can work to get a good match-up.
