Illumini´s Kislev Army - Norscan marauders sighted
« on: October 02, 2016, 07:45:21 AM »
Hi good people, greating from your neighbor in the cold north

After wanting a Kislev army since I first saw the ungol horse archers and winged lancers in a white dwarf as a kid, I have now finally taken the step and decided to build my dream army. After getting a lot of inspiration on this site, I thought I should share my army progress here as well, guessing there are some fellow Kislev fans and mad OOP army creators on this forum  :::cheers:::

You can follow my progress on www.mandollies.com
I will update this thread when I add new updates to the blog.

Also links to two amazing army blogs I have used for inspiration that you should check out:
http://warhammer-empire.com/theforum/index.php?topic=49600.0
http://warhammer-empire.com/theforum/index.php?topic=49073.0

I have been starting on the units that made me want a Kislev army in the first place, the cavalry (more pics on the blog):



My next project after finishing up the first 6 units of cavalry is the Ice Queen herself, here is a little teaser:

Very cool! Is the Ice Queen an official GW model? If not, could you please link me to where I could buy that model? It looks awesome!  :happy:

I already follow your blog. Nice stuff on it.
And we want more!!

In fact, this past week I've been working on Griphon Legion mounting this chaos marauders horses... I have to say that haven't been easy to fit them. So, guys, here there is much work than you imagine.

Thanks guys  :biggriin:

@Duinila: The Ice Queen is a conversion project. The body and arms are from a Hordes warlock, Morvahna the Dawnshadow. The head is from the head vampiress of the coven throne with the crown from the original Kislev Ice Queen. There is also some greenstuff work in there. She is sitting on the throne from the dark elf dragon.

@Rogers Kul: Right back at you  :-D Great that you have started on the Kislev forces and that you are joining the good chaos marauder horse club. It sure is a painful amount of work to get them make the horses look non-chaos aligned and make the riders fit.

I always loved the concept of the ice queen, the most powerful ice sorceress leading a nation besieged by chaos with an icy fist, but she was not imposing enough. So she has visited Daenerys for a crash course in being more imposing, which in general entails: DRAGONS!

I am still working on the dragon, but it is a tough customer, so not totally there yet.

I have however managed to finish a troop of winged lancers: https://mandollies.com/2016/10/29/winged-lancers-troop/

That's beautiful, well done. I love the brown tones you've used on the dragon along with the ice blue, looks very natural.

Now if that isn't a proper ride for the Ice Queen, I don't know what is. Fabulous!

Thanks  :-D

@VonOttenheim: The Dragon is a D&D attack wing dragon called Bahamut: http://dnd.wizards.com/products/tabletop-games/miniatures/dd-icons-realms-bahamut

@Lateksimajava: Yes, I really like the multi-base look, allows for more dynamic posing, mini dioramas and looks cleaner than single bases + movement trays. I have based the army to be playable under Kings of War ruleset, but looks is the number one reason for multi-basing for me.
