Oh; I thought they were mantic, at first glance...

Below is the miniature legend for this warband. 

It's so varied because I spend an inordinate amount of time collecting miniatures, even if I don't have an immediate use for them. The end result is boxes of individual minis that I then dig through when it's time to find character models for my armies and warbands. At other times I will need a mini to fit a certain role, and if I don't already have a suitable mini, I derive quite a bit of satisfaction from searching the available model lines for just the right mini.

Designing (i.e., list building and creating a theme/backstory), collecting, assembling, and converting warbands is by far my favorite part of the hobby, followed by painting and playing the games.


UNDEAD WARBAND MINIATURE LEGEND

The Warlord and the tree with the skeletons draped across it are Privateer Press Circle or Orboros models.

The zombie hound is from Fireforge Games' Living Dead Knights kit.

The zombie bear is the Haunted Bear from Great Escape Games' Dead Man's Hand model line.

The bird/stork guy is the Melchior model from Heresy Lab Miniatures.

The skelly with the crown and the big sword is a Wight King from GW.

The Black Knight is Fireforge Games' Vekhat the Soulreaper.  Its ram's head is a scenery bit from an old GW Wood Elf sprue, with the foliage removed.

Baba Yaga, the walking hut, and the Wendigo (Leshy) are 3D prints from an Etsy printers.

The mounted Hearthguard are from Fireforge Games' Living Dead Knights kit. I found their original heads to be too small so I replaced them with heads from the OOP GW Vampire Counts Skeleton kit.  The antlers were cut from 3d printed knight helmets.

The foot warriors are from Fireforge Games' Living Dead Warriors kit. The tree shields are also sold by Fireforge Games.

The "undead" knights leading the foot warriors are Knights from Heresy Lab Miniatures.

The bow warriors are indeed models from the ill fated Runewars model line.  They are all OOP now, but you can still find them on eBay.

The bow warrior "champion" armed with a sickle is Slough Feg, from the Sláine: Kiss My Axe! miniature game.

The bow warrior "champion" armed with a wavy knife is Zealot Miniatures' Phanrax the Necromancer.

The larger hut arrived today.  I'm much happier with the scale.

Even though it's only going to be used as Sacred Terrain, it will make a wonderful centerpiece for the the warband's display board.

The increased size was a good idea.  That will be impressive on your board.

wonderful mix of ideas and figures. Baba Yaga's hut is fantastic at that larger size.

You could also play the hut as a behemoth or a titan. After all, the hut has big chicken legs to move around. ;)

I cannot wait to see your finished warband! :)

I have yet to put any paint on my Undead or Greenskins, but recently added some new additions.

First, a friend printed only the head and spear from the Avatars of War Savage Orc Warlord STL, so now the head and weapon of my my mounted warlord matches the head and weapon of the foot version.




I've been experimenting with different Undead lists. Two of the options I wish to experiment with are Hearthguard armed with heavy weapons and the static warmachine.  The latter was made by Knightmare Miniatures, and is clearly an homage to the classic 1990s Citadel Miniature's Man-Mangler kit.  I cut down the moon central face's chin a bit, so that in keeping with my Baba Yaga haunted forest theme, the face can be that of a fairy tale witch rather than that of GW greenskin Badmoon symbol.  This warmachine will be nicknamed, The Hag.








Lastly, since the opponent that I've been play testing my Undead against fields a Dwarf warband, I couldn't resist adding some dwarfs to the ranks of my living dead.
