Oldhammer Legacy Warband 2014 - sign up & progress thread

By popular vote (and slightly subversively), we have managed to select an option which wasn't on the racial poll. Our warband is going to be a multi-racial good warband; a sort of anti-Chaos warband if you will.

How does this Legacy Warband thing work anyway?
As a reminder, all contributors agree to paint and contribute one model to the pre-agreed theme (multi-racial good races). You paint the model and post it to your friendly neighbourhood organiser (me - axiom). All contributors are entered into a draw, and the winner out of the hat wins the warband for their collection.

What's the timeframe involved?
Models to be with me (axiom) by Saturday 31st January, with the draw taking place in 1st week in February. No further submissions being taken for the 2014 project.

What models can I contribute?
The theme is a multi-racial good warband; suitable models might include humans, elves, halflings, dwarfs, slann...the list is pretty expansive. Feel free to think wider - warhounds, familiars, mounts and large creatures might also find a home. The project is an Oldhammer project, but that doesn't mean you need to donate a vintage Citadel model - if you have something that looks right from a modern range or alternative manufacturer, then that's all well and good!

How will this warband look coherent?
Good question; the colour scheme has been decided, which will help. Secondly, it was suggested (very sensibly), that the winner does the basing for the warband. This will ensure that a) the warband is coherently based and b) the warband fits into their own collection.

Primary colour = olive (major pieces of clothing, cloaks etc).
Secondary colour = bone (trim, sashes, feathers etc).

Colours/finishes of armour, weapons, skin colour, straps, gemstones and so on are all up to the individual painter to select

How do I take part?
No further contributions being taken for the 2014 project. This thread is where you formally stick your hand up and commit to participating. Simply reply to in the thread, stating what model you are likely to contribute (this can change at a later date), and I will amend the contributor list above.

Progress to date (21 Oct)

Looks like there are plenty of dwarfs already... which is a shame as I thought I might have found a use for the gun-toting White Knight dwarf he included in a trade with me. If that gives too many dwarfs, I could go in for a halfling or a human instead. Your call, axiom.

A chaos warband could easily end up with several dwarfs...no reason why our happy band of all things good shouldn't either!

Gah, goodies are so boring. :roll:

Well, anyway. Stick me down for a Barbarian. I have a double of the Warlock of Firetop Barbarians and it'll be a fun challenge making it look half-decent. :grin:
 
Re: Oldhammer Legacy Warband 2014 - sign up & progress threa

Pick me! My miniature will likely be an elf, human woman or ogre if they are allowed in a lawful heroic band ( maybe some poncy paladin took him under his wing and taught him righteousness :grin: )

10 months to paint one figure and you don't even have to base it? Definitely my kind of painting deadline. :grin: Count me in, almost certainly with an elf.

I am getting on board!
And since it is a good warband, it definitely needs a human paladin :grin:

Okay, I'm in. I'll paint up a human fighter. For those of us in the USA, do we want to consolidate postage or just mail separately?

I've had a look through my spares... put me down for the female dwarf fighter Griswolda and her pet platypus Klarqe.
 
Re: Oldhammer Legacy Warband 2014 - sign up & progress threa

Does it have to be a fighter? I think I should have a nice human magician somewhere.

Choice has been made, it's an Asgard reference by Jes Goodwin for me (now sold by alternative armies) :

I heard that ! (actually read it), I know a poncy paladin who could lead your chaotic evil arse on the path of good with just a smile and fancy combed hair...
