Title: Fantasy Renaissance - Crossbearer (pg 4)
Post by: Thib-0 on September 09, 2013, 01:42:41 PM
Working on something new at the moment. An Estalian Mordheim gang using old GW Empire models that also will be used as Spanish for war of religion skirmish games with a little fantasy twist. Hope you like it.  :)

Really nice job on this bunch. Are you planning any heavier conversions that will look even more distinctly Estalian? Of course there's a lot of variety in Empire figs, so there's probably not much you'd get in Estalia that hadn't been done as Empire at SOME point.  :D

These old Empire minis are also one of my favorite figs. Fortunately, never had the courage to sell them  ;)

I didn't want to go in a "too much fantasy" theme. The choice went for a more historical renaissance gang, so no Elves or Dwarves and such. Sorry  ;)

Cool, I'll follow your thread with great interest.

You have some point also  :). I've planned some Santa-Jacquo de Compostella pilgrims (just converted some shelves on GW models that can be seen here) and also planned for the near future some procession guys based on flagellants.

Just finished my greatsword to form a tercio with the other finished spanish troops and a unit of Pilgrims. Their shelves were converted with green stuff. Hope you like it.

I started collecting the GW stuff in the late '90's, and have some of those empire figs. You are inspiring me to dig them out and paint them up!

I do have a lot of these figures left that without any use, so I thought it would be better to recycle them in a new project. Don't really thought about the list for the moment. I simply paint and convert what models I like the most. But I suppose they will fit in some list  ;)

The Mordheim/renaissance warbands are almost done. Finished of a Tilean scout and started my Luccini warband that also will be used as renaisssance Napolitans. Hope you like it.

An old GW piece from the mid 80's. Never thought I'd find some use for it  ;)

OK, I will. Seems like Tileans use a lot of crossbows. Have to check these army lists  ;)

Partially, I also use Game Color and Liquitex tubes.

Finally finished my Tillean swordsmen. I've now two little warbands of renaissance guys and will try some home rules very soon. Can't wait.  ;D
Hope you like them.

Only just found this thread. Both bands are great. Love the brightness of your red and yellow. I was away from the hobby when  these figures came out. so a lot of these figures are new to me.Especially like the pilgrims and your painting of them is very nicely done. Hope you will be putting together some more bands.

Hi guys,

I finally finished a Procession Repenter (as a test). I started from an old GW flagellant and added some candles on his head (like in "the Monk" movie). I feel rather happy with the result, motivated to enlarge the unit. Hope you like it too.

I did continue with another religious devout. I worked from the same flagellant model as the repenter. Quite happy with the result as both models look very different on the tabletop.
