Title: Stirland forces of Wolfsfurt: 12 MORE SWORDSMEN update 10/4
Post by: General Tomerix Rotenkopf on May 30, 2009, 10:12:59 AM
My travel to Wurtbad and the meeting with the Count ant court went very well!
We have now a contract regarding fundings to rebuild the brave, but oh so un-assembled forces of our town.
To begin with, I will get some new uniforms for my halbedier regiment and the River Patrol unit that resides here. Further on...oh, wait... my scouts are reporting that something is happening in the Hundsheimer Forest. I hope it hasn´t been invaded by some foul creatures...

Gee, it turns out that a flagellant warband has settled in a long-abandoned chapel ruin in the deepest, rocky parts of the forest. Their leader is a well-known figure in these parts, a dreaded witch hunter by the name of Tobias Steinhart. He has wandered around the northeast parts of Stirland for years. Really brutal guy, makes my heat chill. I´d better say some prayers and donate gold to the monastary here in town...

Here is Tbias after being made darker. Devlan Mud worked perfect for the entire model.
(http://i611.photobucket.com/albums/tt195/Tomerix/IMGP0316.jpg)


I made this model a couple of years ago, before I hade the new washes. Recently I made him a little darker, simply by painting thin layers of darker tones on certain places and washing him with Devlan Mud.

Interesting fluff. Sounds like it's from the perspective of the witch hunter model you've got there?

He looks great by the way.

I love that model... I wish I had him... but I don't, so I'll have to just do without. I like the colour scheme, it reminds me of old school warhammer days Paul Sawyer the Beastlord.

Thank you! I got the model two years back when a new hobby store opened here... they had some old stuff that they sold off. I also bought an old Warrior Priest and a Pit Fighter from the same range, which is the old GW role playing game.. I think. The PRiest will undergo some treatment and also be presented here.. and I also have a new warrior priest that I will really try to paint well. I am however no expert Golden Demon winning painter, just a happy amateur..  :engel:

Looks good, very nice starter background. I believe the figure is from the mordheim range of figures, not so much roleplay as skirmish type game. steveb

It's from the Warhammer Quest game, which was a board game with roleplaying elements.  I think most people would think of WFRP as The old warhammer roleplaying game

GRAND MUSTERING

Yes, my fellow Stirlanders, the Grand Mustering of Wulfsfurt has now taken place. Six months after my rise to general and commander of our forces, I can finally see some structure here.
To make a long story short, I will simply list the troops we have right now.

1 Halberd company
1 Swordsmen company (River patrol)
1 Spearman company
1 Handgunners attachment
8 knights (I sent word around the Empire to every knight I know who has family ties to our region. So far, these eigth men have come and we will build a great new order!)
1 Archer detachment
1 Great cannon
1 Volley Gun

Then there is that band of flagellants in the forest.. I wonder if they will fight for us???

I have not gained control of any militia yet, but I know there are lots of able fighters, particularly in the forest and in Remershof, our little mining district just north of Wolfsfurt. My officers will travel around and try to get them in rank, too.

Also, there is a little hobbit settlement in the forest...didn´t know about them until just recently. At first, I just wanted to send them back to the Moot, but after some debate they agreed to pay taxes and provide archers to my army. Not that I have any idea how to use hobbits in a real army. I must have been drunk.
Title: Günther Stahl, The Rat Burner
Post by: General Tomerix Rotenkopf on July 22, 2009, 11:35:10 AM
I would like to introduce my chief engineer and master of our blackpowder arsenal. His name is Günter Stahl, but he is widely known as the Rat Burner. Several years back we took part in a campaign near the mountains, and were ambushed by a large horde of Skaven filth. Günther hit their Warp cannon with a single volley from our Hellblaster, causing it to explode and spread havoc among the rats. Almost half of them were killed in the raging Warp fire. The rest paniced and we could slay them all with ease.

Günther is one of very few Stirlanders ever to have studied the art of gunnery in Nuln, and he is one of my most trusted commanders.

(http://i611.photobucket.com/albums/tt195/Tomerix/Behind.jpg)

The model was dipped so it is kind of bright. On the second picture I have taken the brightness down. My army will not be dipped, just tried it on Günther. =)

I wanted the pipe to be on the dark side, so I have just used Shining Gold and then Chestnut Ink. There will be a touch of Gold on to highight it but otherwise I will leave it as it is.

More pics will follow.  :laugh:

Title: Re: Stirland forces of Wolfsfurt: cannon crew in training
Post by: General Tomerix Rotenkopf on September 06, 2009, 03:57:48 PM
Günther Steinhart, our Gunnery Master, has begun training of his new Cannon crew.
This fine piece of artillery will be run by Hans Mortl from Remershof and his young cousins. Reluctantly (to say the least) they have accepted the prescence of one particularly sturdy little halfling; Mismer Thunderfoot. He was wandering the woods around the ruins of Harvberg when he came into range of some test shooting we did in the hills. Instead of fearing for his life and flleeing, he became obsessed with gunnery and haunted us for days, begging to learn all about the art of gunpowder. Finally Günther himself let the little rascal stay. I don´t mind, in fact it could prove useful to have him around if we need to try out some new powder formula...

The cannon is all but finished, the figures are going to get shaded and then highlighted. And I will make a round base with some nice stuff on it. Return when ready!

After some time, my River Patrol Swordsmen are about to be ready and commence their duties. They are of course dressed in eye-catching green and white uniforms.
They will be celebrating their examination with lots of nice, warm beer, and in a few days I will put them on display here.

The cannon base is almost finished too.

You're well on your way to getting a playable painted force.

Keep at it, don't give up. Everything looks good, though you might need to water down your paint and use washes as other people have stated already. But otherwise a very good start.

Here are some pictures of the 1st Remershof Rifles. Just the base and some detals left.
The marksman with the repeater gun is Armand Kranz, a former boxing champion from the region. After his athletic career, he returned to the Rifles where he had served  for a short while before becoming a professional boxer. He is a local hero and inspiring figure, a typical Stirland officer not hesitating to lead his unit within spitting range of his foe before ordering fire.

Damn it! My handgunners are finished painting.... but I cant find my basing material! I recently moved to a new apartment, and I just cant find the stuff among all unpacked boxes and bags. Been looking like crazy for it.
Good thing is, I got everything else in place looking for those little cans. I could have Karl Franz himself for coffee and not feel embarrassed.  :happy:

Ah, well, I´ll find it... or buy new.

My painted army now consists of:
25 River Patrol Swordsmen
16 Handgunners
1 Great Cannon and crew
1 Master Engineer.

Next up...Knights!!!

Yes, that is the next and almost final thing to do before basing....I think I´´ll go for green on the horses armour and no such gold, since gold is quite well represented elsewhere on the minis.
I will also make the banner, which will be mostly black I think....with details in colour.

The Knights of the Silver Crown are now fully assembled. From around the Empire, 10 knights who claim heritage from Wolfsfurt have come to form the first unit. I have given them the old fortress just north of town to establish the order. Finally we will be able to compete with the damned Talabec knights in Rittershafen.

Wow, they look great! Perhaps you should have brought them today? They might have had some better luck in driving off the treehuggers  :::cheers:::

Thanx people.
Yes of course my faithful brave Stirlander would have put up a better fight than your coward sissy-kniggets from the wrong side of the river.
The purple was a test that I liked and stuck with....maybe re-paint, but it has taken sooo long to get these guys finished, so i dont think I want to get into it again...

They look grate General!

I also like the round shields, and I think your bases with the gray and green makes them knights stand out even more.

Good work!  :::cheers:::

Title: Re: Stirland forces of Wolfsfurt: PIKEMEN WIP
Post by: General Tomerix Rotenkopf on December 21, 2010, 12:34:27 PM
Yesterday evening, as the sun set over our cold, snowy land, trumpets once again sounded from the walls and disturbed me while eating and drinking warm beer with my friends. My guard captain came and told me that a handful of soldiers had arrived, looking for shelter from the winter night. So I went out to see who they were and where they came from. There were ten of them, armed with long pikes; mercenaries they said, hoping to find employment over the winter. There were no officer with them, but they said that their whole company, 30 or more, were on their way north from Wurtbad. They had served Count Anderssen during the summer and fall but had been dismissed. My good friend the Count had told them that I might be in need of some strong and able hands, so they went to see me.
And what can I say? Of course! I have always wanted a pike company in my army! I am going to pay them with the gold we got when we hit a pirate hideout just before the snow fell some weeks ago. If they are any good, I plan to keep them for a long time.

Really excellent conversions. In combination with your awesome knights they will be unbeatable.

Those knights are striking and original- well done. I actually like the splash of unusual purple, although I'd have made it more muted. Jolly good show.

This is going to be a  great unit.

The pikes looks realy long. How long was real life pikes? (I bet you know ofcourse)

Merry Christamas General.

Actually I didn´t know, but Wiki knows. =)
"The pike was an extremely long weapon, varying considerably in size, from 3 to 7.5 metres (10 to 25 feet) long.[2] It had a wooden shaft with an iron or steel spearhead affixed. The shaft near the head was often reinforced with metal strips called "cheeks" or langets. When the troops of opposing armies both carried the pike, it often grew in a sort of arms race, getting longer in both shaft and head length to give one side's pikemen an edge in the combat; the longest pikes could exceed 6 m (22 feet) in length."

Here is the whole article, including pictures. Very interesting read.

Title: Re: Stirland forces of Wolfsfurt: PIKEMEN WIP-colours
Post by: General Tomerix Rotenkopf on December 29, 2010, 09:12:47 AM
I have decided to make my Pikemen wear lots of different colours and not a united scheme. They are mercenaries and I want them to look so. This will also give me an opportunty to test a variety of colour schemes, patterns and other stuff, which surely will prove useful. As my army grows I´m going to make units from other places around the Empire than just Stirland.

If you are thinking about how some colours will work, let me know and one of my about 40 Pikemen will wear them.

Post by: General Tomerix Rotenkopf on April 08, 2011, 09:16:28 PM
I am forming the town guard of Wolfsfurt itself, some of my hardest, battle-proven and most reliable men. The unit always consists of about 50 men, and their main purpuse is to keep order and security in the town. In times of outright war, the halberds is, together with my Knights,  the center of my army, around which my other forces are formed.

Pikemen are going slowly forward. Very slowly.  :engel:
Focus on getting as many state troops and militia as possible finished, and also making a general.

In compliance with the new Imperial Tactics, the River Patrol unit in town recruited 12 more fighters to their ranks, they are no3 30 men strong. Note the round shields of some of the newcomers,, just like on my knights.  :ph34r: They also have about a dozen archers in training at the moment.
