Build a Warband Challenge - Inquisimunda

Its time for another round of the "Build a Warband" challenge over on the danish forum. The thread is in danish, but well worth a look through, as pictures of interesting minis are beginning to surface.

The game is Inquisimunda/ Inq28, and people are gathering together crazy bands of 40K characters. My own contribution is an Ordo Hereticus inquisitor and his followers, two of which can be seen here.

Fishman shaman

I have some fishmen from Khurasan, that I want to build a small warband around. I even have some fishlike monstrous creatures to go it them. What I was lacking was a leader for the group. So I did a quick sculpt, and now I am all set to paint up my next fantasy warband. Yay!

Seamus Crew

Oh look! I found something in my picture folder I had forgotten to post here - Crappy phonecam pics of the Seamus crew I painted for a Malifaux tournament in Copenhagen in October.

The crew I took to the tournament was centered 100% around models with the Terryfying ability and boardcontrol, and it took most of my opponents by surprise :) I ended up placing 7th out of 14 players, with some very close matches. This crew tends to wear down the opposition and gain their victory points in turn 5 or 6. Very effective at it too, but because of the tournament timelimit, I often did´nt get to turn 5 or 6.. Ah well, much fun was had. I love how competitive and complex a game Malifaux is, it really provides a nice contrast to some of the more casual skrimish games I usually prefer to play.

Gloria Fata Correctional

The challenge with my collection of 15s, is that I keep buying eclectic handfuls of interesting models from different companies. I have been wanting to do a Sci-Fi platoon level army in 15mm for a long time, in fact it was what initialy drew me to the scale. However I seem to be incapable of going to a website and simply order a complete army. Like the Crit Mass Battleforces for instance. Instead I buy all their mercenaries, and a few blisters/ vehicles from each faction.. oh the horrors of indecision..

Looking through my growing mountain of miss matched miniatures, I decided to start with what I got, and build from there. That led to the small force you see below, and the idea grew to expand it thematically to form a Penal Legion army. Now I need to find some suitable unarmoured, low-tech troops to form the great massed regiments of the army. I am leaning towards grabbing some french foreign legion from Blue Moon, and converting them to fit. Either that, or some Forged in Battle french troops, but I suspect the FiB minis are very small, even for 15mm. ( Can anyone help confirm exactly how tall they are?)

I am building the army towards playing games of Fireteam Andromeda, which I am looking much forward to the release of. Torben demoed me a version of the rules this summer, and it looks to be an exicting game to get into.

The elite troops of the army consists of a variety of enforcer type characters.

"The wardens" will add some heavy support to the force. After the prototype is done, I plan to build two units of 3 with various arms. Should be good support units for medium sized games.

40K pistols make great 15mm heavy weapons..
