As suggested here (http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,11894.0.html) Warband Tales is a thread for those of you interested in charting the rise of your Warband army, from idea, to bare lead, to glorious technicolour, world conquering war host!

List your initial purchases, army lists and post every week or two a few pics of what you painted (or didn't)!

If you feel inclined, let us have your thoughts behind your army and the pictures too, of course.

Show us how Warband is developing on your tabletop.   Smiley

When I picked up my copy of the Warband rules I had just started rebasing my 10mm Normans to suit ancients rules such as Impetus so I decided to use them as a base for a Dragon Men army. Unfortunately I had based my Normans on 6cm x 3cm bases, smaller than the recommended base size so I made some card rules with a 6cm BW marked out on them. I then got my existing Orc army which was also based on 6cm wide bases and my friends and I had our first game. I have found that using smaller bases has not affected our games at all. So my Norman Knights became Dragon Knights, the spearmen, Men-at-Arms and so on. I already had some giants based suitably but had to use some Anglo Saxon Huscarles as my Command base/Baron. So the photo below shows the start of my specially made Baron's base for my Norman Dragonmen. I have a raised platform of rock with 2 model dragons on it, the figures will be painted up with the baron and his standard on the platform with his guardsmen arranged below, in front. I'll post another picture when it is completed.



For our third game last night one of my friends brought along some 10mm Normans he has started to rebase to suit my basing that he also used as Dragonmen and another friend was actually using his phone to plan a Wood Elf Army for the game. As for me, I now have Dragon Men, Orcs and Goblins and Barbarian Armies almost complete by just adding a few units to what I already had painted (I have just painted up a 15mm Mammoth I found I had in a box and added a balsa wood howdah, looks good with the barbarian crew). So next I plan to do a High Elf army using the Pendraken figures which I bought over Xmas but have yet to paint. This will be my first actually planned Warband army, I will probably stay with my smaller bases so that I can use my Elves against my other forces.

I just received my first purchase. A rare pack of GW Warmaster Dwarves- Anvil of Doom & Throne of Power. I want to use these figures for my General and Spell-crafter so i have unique models that are easily identifiable.

Here is a pic of the models. These are just ones I found, not painted by me. Mine are new/bare. The pack has a dwarf king sitting with throne & base. 4 Guards/Throne bearers, a one piece anvil with Runesmith on top, also with 2 guards. a chained up pet bear, along with 2 other dwarf hero types. One looks like Bugman with a mug, the other I cannot identify.

Hope so. I wanted to get  pretty much all I'd need in one go.  Now just a few weeks to get it.

OK, so i'm slowly working on my first post-release Warband army.  The progress is actually lamentably slow (although i have a hill dwarf and goblin army already done, so i can still play!)

However, the Hill Dwarves of the Red Mountain are beginning to shape up.

Here's the start with the King's unit (already posted elsewhere).

And the second unit completed recently, as well as the banners for the units so far.

I'm going to try to push on with the next units this week.

VERY NICE! The flags are great! I really like shieldwall effect. Is the second unit using mantlets?

Very nice, you are getting a lot of nicely painted figures on each base, so I'm not surprised its taking a while to get the army together.
