Title: Pfeildorfers - an Empire OOP army
Post by: Jaeckel on February 28, 2018, 08:49:30 PM
Hi folks. Here is a project I started two years ago. The initial intent was to build an army based on Marauder Miniatures only. But as time goes by, I include more and more Citadel models designed by Aly (and sometimes Trish) Morrison.

For the background, I use the sourcebook written by Mad Alfred (http://www.madalfred.com/) for WFRP, where Pfeildorf is the former capital of the Sudenland, and now a Free City.

My first completed regiment is a band of flagellants, or two bands of 8 if you follow the 3rd edition Warhammer armies book.

The second regiment I consider achieved is the militia raised by the most important guilds of the city: cobblers, shearers, tailors and tanners.

The City Watch is not totally finished: I plan to extend it to 32 models, just like the militia (each flag corresponds to a district of Pfeildorf):

Same thing with the mercenary swordsmen. Still an on-going project:

And finally a few shooters:

That's it for the moment :)

Well, thank you all! Below some details on the militia and the guild masters of Pfeildorf. You may recognize citizen from the Marauder Miniatures range, a Talisman merchant and old Citadel villagers and Dogs of War. The shield bearers are slightly converted Marauder Miniatures halflings.

Thanks! As I said before, the mercenary swordsmen are not finished yet. I intend to complement them with fighters from the Marauder MM60 range. The first 10:

Yup. In particular the ugly wizards (or Magic Users) that should have been released by Marauder Miniatures. I have already one painted (the one holding a cup), I still have to find ideas for the other ones!

Fantastic painting! These are some of the best looking Empire units I have ever seen (and I'm not even that fond of many of these old models).

I'm curious - how long does it take you to paint 1 miniature? And have you written any painting guides/tutorials by any chance?

Thank you for sharing!  :::cheers:::
Title: Re: Pfeildorfers - an Empire OOP army
Post by: Jaeckel on March 03, 2018, 03:49:06 PM
I think I spend a few hours on each model, maybe 4 for a simple one. I wrote a lot of tutorials with my friend Haekel on this website: http://haekel.free.fr/ (http://haekel.free.fr/). But it takes a lot of time, and I gave up when I started my first army of dwarfs (https://jaeckelalone.blogspot.fr/2015/12/2000-pts-painting-odyssey.html).

I'm not normally a big fan of the Marauder sculpts, too far before my time for nostalgia, but then I'd never seen them painted like this before. Your painting style is just perfect for these, making the odd and sometimes slightly comical proportions seem intentional, like the lovely illustrations on the covers of the older Discworld novels. Plus I love that you put so much thought into the backstory of the units, the guild militia is amazing.

Truly special.

Thanks again. Last details on the (almost) completed units: the City Watch (actually the Guild of Lamplighters and Watchmen). So far, the regiment gathers elements from two separate districts: Mórrsfeld and Söllhafen. Mórrsfeld is the district where the prison of St Quintus stands: excellent opportunity to paint an executioner (the ogre), the warden (the guy holding keys), a jailer and the chief interrogator, plus a few guards.

As you can see below, I've changed my mind with the standard bearer: on the left, the initial one (painted before the completion of the second district), on the right, the final one (painted with the same colors as Söllhafen's standard):

Unreleased marauder minis ! With slottas removed
Well, I've succeeded in keeping the slotta for the legionary, but unfortunately not for the crossbowman. As I do not plan to sell them, I don't think it's a big deal in the end :p

Bought them on eBay two years ago I believe. From a guy who also sold the ultra rare Nuln spearman and the Guard Captain... I still have two unreleased Marauder models to paint.

Amazing stuff, i just cant believe you cut the slotta TAB's off the unreleased Marauder models! HAHA

In 50 years time, they might be the only surviving models of their type.

You will not be able to proove authenticity.

I thought I was Oldhammerer by adding some 3th edition miniatures to my Empire army, but this left me speechless! I think you own many models I'd never seen painted, truly essence of Oldhammer with such cool unreleased models and top painting! Keep it working we want to look through more  :happy:

Also, welcome to the B&P  :::cheers:::

Hi folks,
Here are the latest additions to my regiment of forester: Citadel (Astol the Archer), Marauder Miniatures (the hornblower), Talisman (the Leprechaun) and Warmonger Miniatures (initially an unreleased wizard from Marauder Miniatures):

Rarely have I seen such rustic, basic and worn colours painted so vividly. Brings to my mind some Golden Demon Mordheim warbands. Great attention to detail too, but not overwhelming like some professional GW painters do.

This army is just incredible. It is insane how much better the old sculpts look without RED! everything and goblin green bases. Of course it helps that you are a master painter too. The Reiksguard look really beefy, not all of them are reiksguard sculps? Or are they even older generation foot reiksguard than the last ones?
Title: Re: Pfeildorfers - an Empire OOP army
Post by: Midaski on December 07, 2018, 11:45:42 AM
The front rank guy on the left is one of the MM60/61 Fighters, with a plume swap if I remember correctly - but there are some clever weapon swaps of the two Reiksguard releases and again I think some of the plumes have been 'standardised'. 
Great unit.   :eusa_clap:

You're right, the front guy on the left is a MM60 Fighter. The other 9 are Marauder Miniatures MM65 Reiksguard references, slightly converted, but plumes untouched.

Fantastic looking army!

What I didn't see in the piecemeal progress was how unified your colour scheme is. The hues vary a lot, but the minis blend together superbly. Care to write a word about how you plan & achieve this, if you haven't already?

Also the bases are great. That mossy green - it's painted mostly directly on the base, or is there some scatter and grass there?
