Title: Specific heroes for Warband...
Post by: Moggy1000 on 11 October 2017, 10:53:52 AM
I think a hero character or two for each army would be great, usually on cavalry, dragon or some other beast in relation to the army... Could have an undead necromancer, dark elf with a hero on a spider chariot, high elf on a dragon... Things like such...

Bully Leon as much as you like..... ;D ;D ;D

I really enjoy going to town on individual figures !

The only drawback from Leon's point of view is that he'll only sell a handful......compared to the troops that would be regarded as 'grunts'.....Would folk be prepared to pay extra, for what are effectively 'one offs' ?

Cheers - Phil

Yes - because its only the odd figure.

I recently bought the Zulu chief for 50p for a single figure, compared to £1.65 for a pack of 10. And was quite happy to do this, as I only need 1.

I have always really liked the character figures that came in the WM command packs. And its great to see Pendraken doing similar with Warband.

Read the original now - rather than just Phil's answer.

And yes big monster things would be great - these were always good from a WM point of view. They cost about the same as a pack of normal troops.

I'd happily pay £5-10 for one hero, provided it was pretty sizeable... Like a chariots (dark elves, undead), dragon (high elves), elephant/Mammoth (barbarians),tree (wood elves) ...

I wouldn't complain another extra cost... Malekith from GW was a £50 model...

Fine by me, chums.....

As I say....you'll have to bully Leon.  ;) ;D

It wasn't until I worked for the Evil Empire in the late Eighties/early Nineties, that I got my head around this.

In those days...A pack of 'grunts' (at 28/30mm) would come out at about £1 per figure.....but so were the 'character' figures.
When the price of a 'command group' seemed to go rocketing up...I must admit, I thought, that's a bit excessive.....Until I thought about it.

Grunts.....Sell hundreds/thousands/tens of thousands ? (more ?).....Command groups ?....A relative handful.
The time it took the sculptor to make the command figures, might have been a teeny BIT longer... but the number of figures would have been a tiny fraction of the sales of the 'grunts'.

It's like a one off figure, like Napoleon (or Wellington)....Just as an example.
Probably takes one of my colleagues a little bit longer to make those.....but only charge Leon almost the same amount as a 'normal' trooper.

You never, ever see a battle with hundreds of the ultimate commander of the force on the table.

I know a LOT of you understand this......But there are a few who haven't had this pointed out.

Hope that all makes sense ! ;)

Cheers - Phil

It's definitely something we'd like to do, Barbarian chieftain on a mammoth, Elf on an eagle, Goblin warlord or a big whacking chariot, things like that.  It's timescales at the moment really and getting some other projects out of the way before starting new ones.

Leon you have given us hope... But if we are deceived we will March upon you with chariots of steel, weapons made of pan and armor made of cloth... :) haha

But this is clearly more important!

Make it happen, I'm on hunger strike until I see the update!

Not talking about a limited run, as somebody could essentially monopoly them onto a certain auction site... Bit like the 2009 update of Space Hulk...

I think if the molds are made,  they should be put into the rules. I plan on building multiple armies, even upto 200/300 units... I have no intention of changing brand and I see this as an investment... A lot of the guys at the local gaming place play the bigger scales with "heroes"... So if I cam get them into this scale anything would be helpful :)

Sorry, can't make March. Can probably do April . . .

Elf on an eagle!
This is my new not-swearing-phrase  :D


Title: Re: Specific heroes for Warband...
Post by: Moggy1000 on 12 October 2017, 09:58:31 AM
I would say Dark Elf with a chariot pulled by giant rats, undead could be on a throne being carried by multiple undead, dragon men could be a dragon priest atop a dragon, dwarves could be on some type of mechanical construct, high elf on an eagle? Pegasus perhaps?


Title: Re: Specific heroes for Warband...
Post by: Techno on 12 October 2017, 10:21:46 AM
Dark elf chariot would have to be pulled by giant spiders.....Says the man who has just made some new rat-men super-dollies.......Don't get excited...They'll be a long way down the line.

Cheers - Phil


Title: Re: Specific heroes for Warband...
Post by: Moggy1000 on 12 October 2017, 10:51:53 AM
It could be pulled by a single "hero" spider haha


Title: Re: Specific heroes for Warband...
Post by: Techno on 12 October 2017, 04:06:00 PM
I've already made that/those.

(I think the giant 'taranchlias' (sic) 'wot I done' could be a little on the large side for pulling a chariot.  ;))

Cheers - Phil


Title: Re: Specific heroes for Warband...
Post by: Moggy1000 on 12 October 2017, 04:30:43 PM
Ok then... Bur even so... I think a "unique" general/hero would be a brilliant concept and would add to any fluff people decide for their particular warband...


Title: Re: Specific heroes for Warband...
Post by: Techno on 12 October 2017, 04:38:59 PM
When time permits, Moggy......I'll be on it/them asap.

As Leon has said, in other threads,.......It's down to getting things done 'in the right order'. ;)

Cheers - Phil

Post by: ErHo on 12 October 2017, 04:50:28 PM
I think this brings up the question on publishing Warband supplements, will there be expanded army lists to come or will there be a Warband 2nd edition?

I think you should add "Arnold Judas" to the signature, ErHo. ;)

I didn't realise that Red Dwarf traveled so well.....We're supposed to be getting a new series here, very soon.

Remaking it? This should be interesting! 

I havnt seen it broadcast since the late 90s TBH, but I have a few random dvds.


As far as the characters, who is this Jim and Keira on the old mini list anyway?





Title: Re: Specific heroes for Warband...
Post by: mad lemmey on 13 October 2017, 02:55:56 PM
You can tell you're relatively new round here! Keira  :x is the Forum/Nik Harwood's sweetheart  :x Keira  :x Knightly, in her 'Arthurian (ie not wearing much)  =(( ' guise,  and Jim is a monstrous Chaotic Warrior, both sculpted by Phil (Techno) Lewis!

I had far too much time on my hands, back then.

I still b*gger about with the putty, from time to time, when I just want to 'let rip' and do my own thing.
(You should see some of the painkiller induced chaotic crud I've done recently.....And I STILL haven't finished Will's meerkat.....I WILL get the dust off that, and get it to you as a Christmas prezzie, Will.)

Remaking it? This should be interesting!

I think our TV Channel 'Dave' is calling it series 12......IMHO the series 1 through 6 are the best.

Nik, I love your work but thats my woman, and has been since Disneys "Princess of Thieves".  Of course we went our seperate ways about the time she did the Beckham flick, but we are hard at it ever since!

Are there any pics of the mini around?


Title: Re: Specific heroes for Warband...
Post by: Techno on 13 October 2017, 04:33:34 PM
There were, until those oiks at photobucket decided that they wanted wodges of cash to host piccies.

If you PM me your email.....I'll take a piccy of her, and send it to you. ;)

I did give her a slightly bigger bust than in the photo you've posted......But not a Mae West.

Cheers - Phil.

I've seen hamsters with bigger busts that Ms Knightly has (not denying that the effect is very appetising).

I had a chat with her Dad over coffee at the weekend, a nice man. Fortunately I had twigged who he was before the subject of Ms Knightly came up so i didn't put my size elevens straight into my gob!

I don't even like to think how he got hamsters to have large busts. Maybe he means just modelled metal figures of them?

The unsuccessful experiments were not wasted; simmered them in syrup, and the tulips are doing really well now.

(recycled joke, but can't waste a good opening, as the bishop said)
