Title: Oathmark and The Witcher
Post by: Neunfinger on July 22, 2020, 08:10:45 PM
Hey everyone,

with the release of Oathmark I have started painting some models for use in the Witcher setting.
Here are some of my minis for the army of Lyria and Rivia, a small kingdom in the south if the Northern Realms.
Starting with Queen Meve and her royal banner

Banner and Reynard Odo, General and advisor to the queen

Nice! Really like the queen, is she a conversion?
Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher
Post by: HappyChappy439 on July 22, 2020, 09:06:21 PM
Amazing work!  And great painting of the heraldry! Is Meve based on the Perry Miniatures Richard III? She's a great conversion! 

And nice to see some interpretation of the Witcher setting, it seems like a great opportunity for a project!

If you don't mind me asking, will you be focusing on Lyria and Rivia, or will you be looking into other factions as well?

Love it. Following with great interest.

Thank you for the compliments, I'm glad you like the minis.

Nice! Really like the queen, is she a conversion?

As HappyChappy said, she is based on Richard 3rd from the Perrys. I changed out her sword for a plastic one since the original was bent and added the two tiny shields covering the armpits. The face is the original, but I think it seems rather convincingly female through the application if a bit of lipstick :D

I really like the Witcher Setting for Wargaming. Since it is a morally grey world, all the factions have rather plausible (though usually not very nice) reasons for being at war with one another.

I have painted some Temerians and Redanians as well, but will be focusing on the Lyrians for one. Then maybe some Scoiatel and at some point Nilfgaard.

Great project! I am quite surprised how well the Richard mini can be converted to a female version. I also like the banner, quite striking.
Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher

These look great! I am looking forward to seeing more! Do you plan on doing assorted monsters as well as armies?

So was I :D

For now, I'm focussing on the human armies. I have some monsters in my collection and am looking forward to adding some special ones. After all, it wouldn't be the witcher without monsters ;)

Here are some dwarves from Mahakam, defending a supply cart.

I just finished a mini-diorama I like to call "Gnomeo and Goblia". It's an homage to the combining of fantasy races in Oathmark, which I like a lot.

Thank you :)

Here's what I have painted this month:
Apart from what I've already shown there are 12 Billmen, 3 peasant militia and 3 Strays of Spalla (bringand cavalry)
The billmen will be used as Human Spearman, the peasants as Human militia and the Strays most likely as Goblin wolf riders in Oathmark. The human cavalry seems too strong for poorly armed, ragtag cavalrymen.
Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher
Post by: HappyChappy439 on July 26, 2020, 04:59:42 PM
Great work (again)!

Mind if I ask what kits went into the strays? I recognise some of the Perry Agincourt Knights in there, but with different arms and heads right?

(And I'm guessing you've been playing some Thronebreaker! Will this mean we get to see a Gascon?)
Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher
Post by: Neunfinger on July 26, 2020, 05:05:12 PM
Yes, I had a great time playing Thronebreaker. I would love to field Gascon, do you have a suggestion for a fitting mini? I haven't found one yet.
The strays are kit bashed from Perry's Agincourt Knights, as you correctly stated, Frostgrave Soldiers (male&female), FG cultists and warriors bits like the dark age shields and bags on the horses.
Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher
Post by: Hupp n at em on July 28, 2020, 03:22:16 PM
These are great!  Are you going to build some Nilfgaard forces? Also where did you get the dwarves?  I really like the look of those.  Not often you see armored dwarves that aren't mini Vikings.
Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher
Post by: Neunfinger on July 28, 2020, 03:58:54 PM
Nilfgaard is definitly something I'd like to do, but haven't planned anything yet.
The dwarves are from Reaper Minis Warlord Range. I have swapped a couple of helmets and weapons, mostly from Perry HYW Plastic Sets. I also have a regiment of Hasslefree dwarves which I am going to paint next month.

Not exactly Witcher, but I've finished a couple of Germanic Orks for Oathmark. What do you guys think of them? I'm not a fan of the portrayal of Orks in Warhammer or even the Lord of the Rings so I've decided to base mine on cultures from the European migration period.
Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher
Post by: LouieN on July 28, 2020, 05:36:38 PM
A very nice looking Orc band.

I love your Orcs! They are as far away from GW or PJ as I am from being striker for Chelsea! (and I am a 60year old chronic asthmatic who hates football and has never kicked a ball)
Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher

I like your Orcs. I particularly like the shield transfers you chose.

There is a lot to like in this thread!
Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher
Post by: Neunfinger on July 31, 2020, 08:13:15 PM
I'm glad you like them.
Rick W., the shilds are hand painted. It's something I really enjoy.
Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher
Post by: Rick W. on August 01, 2020, 12:11:42 AM
You hand painted those? Wow! I am both impressed and sad. Impressed at your amazing skill and sad that now I will not be able to source them to use myself. Seriously impressive work.

Those dwarf models, where are they from? I'm looking for sensibly proportioned dwarfs for my own fantasy project and these are not the usual beards wit legs.

Again, thanks for the kind comments. While I try to paint fast, I really enjoy painting little details like the heraldry and shield patterns.

As Chimpfoot guessed the dwarves are from Hasslefree with a couple of Perry Plastics parts like the paveses and the poleaxe.

There's a few open-faced/visorless sallets in the Perry WotR Mercenaries plastic set, which could work for a base, but getting the horns/wings added will definitely be a challenge!

The Battle for the Bridge on the Yaruga
[/b]

Meve's partisan army has been cornered by the Nilfgaardian forces. Their only chance of survival is to reach a nameless bridge over the river Yaruga, defended by a small contingent of Lyrian soldiers and dwarven mercenaries. But the Nilfgaardians have split their forces and are pushing the defenders over the bridge. Can they hold the bridge long enough for Meve to cross the river and evade her pursuers?

Agreed on the characterful minis. I'm enjoying your muted color scheme here, but I've got to ask, how do you paint your bases? I'm digging the different colored rocks/gravel.

Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher
Post by: Neunfinger on October 17, 2020, 01:02:55 PM
Thanks for all the kind comments.

Jack Hooligan, after drybrushing from brown to beige I pick out a couple of individual stone with light grey and wash them with black. Afterwards I add static grass and tufts.
The minis are mostly painted Goblin Green (Army painter) for the uniforms, Zandri Dust or Wraithbone (GW) for the gambesons, Calthan brown (GW) for everything made of leather and a few extra colours depending on the mini. After the base colours comes a wash with either Agrax Earthshade (GW) or Strong Tone (Army Painter) over everything exept metal. The first highlight is done with the basecolour, the final highlight with basecolour + Wraithbone. I feel having the same wash and highlight helps tieing the colours together.

Ciliatus, I am indeed from Germany, near Köln. I was wondering what gave it away when I remembered my nickname :D
Thank you for the compliment, that is very nice to hear.
While I hope you are all enjoying your weekend, in case you have to spend your saturday working I have some finished modells to show you:

Silly question but does this mean that you'll be using the Claymore aesthetic for the Temeria-and-friends part of the Northern Realms?
Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher
Post by: Neunfinger on October 17, 2020, 08:44:35 PM
Ultra, Mr. J, thanks.

HappyChappy, I guess that depends. I'm using a mix of Hundred Years War and War of the Roses models and bits for the northern realms. The more modern armour of the WotR for the wealthier and elite troops, the HYW armour and aesthetic for smaller nations or just poorer troops.

Fantastic painting!

Really like the LotR Model as well. It truly is a pity that I did not start that game when it was in its heyday. Would actually like to try it even today but where I live there is no players for that game and I am not willing to throw my money at GW for a product they do not actively support. Well, apart from the overpriced Forgeworld stuff...

Anyway, looking forward to seeing more of your excellent work!

My wife and I played two games of the Last Days Of Lorenthia. The first was Rangers of Shadow Deep, where a force of Orcs and other monsters assaults a train of peasants fleeing into a Lorenthian city.

The second game was Oathmark, a pitched battle between the Lorenthian Army and the force of Orcs, Ogers and Undead.

This is another inspiring thread (I have always had problems visualising how to paint medieval and fantasy armies but this thread and Akula's "painting everyone in Westeros" thread is giving me ideas).

Beautiful pictures from RoSD!
How big (point value) was the Oathmark gane?
2400 pts,  which worked very well. We played it out in 2h, including looking up some rules. There was a nice variation of unit types. I think 2000 - 3000 pts might be a good standard size for a game

How big was the table? How many turns did you have? Was it some scenario, or just kill-them-all? Do you have maybe a unit list?
Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher

Let's see:
-The table was 90x120 cm
-We played for 5 turns
-No special scenario
-Mostly humans vs goblins

Wasnt the table too dense? Were 5 turns enough? Did you use artillery?
Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher
Post by: Neunfinger on November 30, 2020, 04:58:33 PM
The table-size was fine. Since the armies started close to one another there was action right from the start. We ended the game after five turns with about half the lorenthian Army retreating in good order. They had lost a couple of important units and were in danger of getting surrounded. The shadow deep on the other hand had only lost a single complete unit, but almost all units had suffered losses and weren't able to deliver as much punch as the remaining lorenthian units.
Could have played it out in another 2-3 turns, I guess. But the decision is fitting with the narrative, so we left it at that.
We had one light catapult and it was very effective against regular infantry. Very potent because of the combination of indirect fire, high range, flank bonus and negation of shielding.
Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher
Post by: BZ on November 30, 2020, 08:06:42 PM
Thanks!
I experienced, that catapults can be devestating against big units, they can block a big area, even on 6x4 (180x120) table.
We play until now also without a goal, and so more then 6 turns seems to be no fun anymore.

I'm glad you get some use out of my impressions ;)

I have created the Kingdom of Alladore as a Kingdom in Oathmark. I'm planning a narrative campaign consisting of RoSD and Oathmark games. What do you think of the map (drawn in Wonderdraft by me) and the terrain-choices?
Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher

Very cool map! Did you use Inkarnate?
Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher

Cool map.

What is Wonderdraft?
Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher
Post by: Elbows on December 03, 2020, 01:17:25 AM
Wonderdraft is a really nice map-drawing software.  The advantage is you buy it once and have it, it's not a subscription like some other ones.  Definitely worth checking out.  About $30.

An example of one I did:
(https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-p6M-aPyEw6Q/X8g9POi9RoI/AAAAAAAAGWY/kCjIwyYv_k4dmBAsoDtVGlwtvSousH_XwCLcBGAsYHQ/s2048/Map02.png)
Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher
Post by: Pattus Magnus on December 03, 2020, 02:49:13 AM
The maps look excellent! I use Campaign Cartographer, which I like (despite the learning curve to get used to the user interface) but the results from Wonderdraft look just as good. Is it fairly intuitive to use?

I like the rest of the project, too. Using RoSD and Oathmark in a single campaign seems like a great idea.
Title: Re: Oathmark and The Witcher
Post by: Neunfinger on December 03, 2020, 06:43:05 AM
Mr J and Ultra, glad you like it. Elbows did it a good job explaining what Wonderdraft is. Very nice looking map, by the way! I initially used Inkarnate, but got annoyed with the subscription system.

Pettus Magnus, I have to say I find Wonderdraft very unintuitive, at least compared to Inkarnate. It has a lot more functions and you can customise a lot more, but you also have to spend more time learning the program. Where I was able to create a decent looking map in Inkarnate in 30 min on the first try, it took me the better part of an afternoon in Wonderdraft. Now that I have gotten the hang of it, it's not so much an issue.
I think the program is tailored a lot more to zoomed out maps of continents than I'd prefer, since I mostly draw regional maps without coastlines and with a bit more detail.

A Captain for the forces of Alladore. The colour contrast sets him apart from the rank and file, so he can be easily spotted during games.
Let's hope the shadow deep does not employ any snipers ;)

I'm currently preparing a campaign where Alladore sets out to reclaim a county that has been overrun by the shadow deep as well as the Across the wastes expansion for Rangers of Shadow Deep.

Lovely work. Perfect for the Build Something Contest.
Is the contest still on or already finished?

I also started on three swamp bases with modular trees:

Nice and gloopy - wouldn't want to get my feet wet in those swamps. What evil denizens are present in those watery depths to drag unwary travellers to their deaths? Very nice work!

I'm thinking of adding the top half of a troll head peeking out of the water to one of the ponds. Though they are probably a bit small to hide a troll :D

Those swamp bases are simply fantastic.

I'd love to see a tutorial if you have the patience!

I'll try, but no promises ;)

Here's the three next ponds painted. Next up is adding bushes and flock, after that epoxy water and tufts. After that the trees will be added.

The allodorian patrol continues it's way through the swamps on the border with the Shadow Deep.
And they can't shake the feeling that someone is watching them...

Glad you like it. Has someone spotted what's lurking in the swamp?

I've built a unit of dwarven spearmen. A bit of kit bashing, but mostly just the Oathmark Dwarf Infantry set.

Plus some heavy dwarven infantry, kit bashed with Perry hundred years war foot knights.

My brain immidiately started to play the bass:
"It's close to midnight
Something evil's lurkin' in the dark
Under the moonlight
You see a sight that almost stops your heart"

I was thinking more along the lines of Iron Maiden's Fear Of The Dark but I guess Thriller works as well :D

ouh. I like those heavy infantry. I don't know what it is with the oathmark dwarfs, but they usually do not appeal to me, I might be to brainwashed by years of collecting citadel dwarves... If I try to pinpoint it, it is that they usually do not look like they mean business, but rather like garden gnomes or something. somehow less comical but still less serious. however, I really like that kitbash, it somehow makes them look more realistic and thereby circumvents the problems. nice work!
