Don's GoT
« on: August 06, 2017, 08:46:29 AM »
Okay I am late on the bandwagon... lol

But inspired by the new episodes I started my own Game of Thrones-Project.
I try to paint up a few factions for an intended multiplayer, with lots of action, treason, murder and so on....:)

The warbands will be 15 man strong. And I will game with an easy version of "This very Ground"...house ruled and so..

I will try to get the typical stuff of the houses in the little warbands, but there will be no major characters from the books. Would feel odd to me like Göring being the chef of my Luftwaffenfeld-Division at Boltaction or Napoleon leading my Drums and Shako-french...;)
And in the first step vereryboby will be on foot.

Okay her are the first pics of the Lannisters.
The minis are a wild mix of every plastic box I could lay my hands on, with a few metal minis spinkled in.



And a kind of top view to make the force organisation more transparent:
The warband will be lead by a Ser.
There will be a Champion, a 5-6 man CC-troope, 3 missle troops, a 3 man support (here a few savages from the hilltribes) and 2 man non combat unit for taking mission objectives...




Perhaps I have to make each unit 1-2 minis bigger...have to make a playtest for that...:)

All painted in a day... o_o lol

Cheers,
Don

This is really nice and inspiring.  I hope you make warbands for many more factions.

Stealing the Russian Lion shield idea for my Lannisters, that's too good.  :-*. Great painting and the kitbashing is on point.  What house are you doing next?

It ought to be a casualty figure, with broken guitar, and severed vocal cords. Either that or a special rule to make any enemy in hearing distance take a compulsory rage test.
