Pfeildorfers - an Empire OOP army
« 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 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 :)

That is a glorious collection of figures, and fascinating to look at. My hat goes off to you!

Very big welcome to the forum.

Those are beautiful, and I love the tanner, tailors, cobblers and shearers!

I hate people who don't paint their armies, hate them with all my guts. Beats me how they value other things over painting, like eating or brushing teeth.

I woke up a few years ago and realised that life is a matrix like simulation. Everyone you ever meet ages and rots, your wife gets old, your kids leave... Only miniatures remain , lasting centuries.. millenia. What we paint now will echo in eternity!

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.



A few rank and file models (the first one being an unreleased Marauder Miniatures spearman):



And some larger models:

I like how the main banner is a collection of four sets of other heraldry from some of the shields. :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

Is that a teapot on his shield?  This is so unique for sure.

Face tattoos and the lot!  How do you do it? Itís almost too much for me to throw some wash on and hope for the best. (Hope being the key word and usually wasted)😸

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!
