GW still sell all the warbands as boxed sets and some individual models but I reckon I can do a lot better from the WFB range. This is the GW boxed effort. (All images courtesy of GW)
It's not too bad but the sculpts are showing their age and the warhound is far too cartoony. The warband must consist of a witch hunter captain, 0-3 witchhunters, a warrior priest of sigmar, flagellants, zealots and warhounds up to a maximum of 12 models.
The witchhunter captain is an obvious choice as I am painting the empire witchhunter for the painting competition. He looks suitably mysterious and experienced to lead a warband of witchhunters.
The other witchhunter models have proved a little bit more tricky. With a little work the 40k inquisitor would make an excellent lesser witchhunter, all dark, broody and very atmospheric. I particularly like the pistol/torch.
This Empire captain would make a much more flamboyant witchhunter and contrast nicely with the 40k version.
This just leaves the zealots and warhounds, the zealots I'm not too bothered about but maybe some empire militia would work. The warhounds, on the other hand, I feel are vital to give the right atmosphere to the warband but GW don't seem to make the right kind of thing at the moment. The fenrisian wolves just look wrong and are far too big.
So does anybody have any ideas for warhounds, or any experience with Mordheim?
