Travelling Empire Merchant

A little month ago I made a post about a Forge World miniature that I had converted into a travelling merchant a character that fits right into the Warhammer universe – He’s carrying a bunch of junk he’s hoping to sell. You can see the WIP post here: WIP: Travelling Empire Merchant

I finished painting the miniature recently and I’m very happy with the result. I’m sure he’ll often be taken out to stroll the streets in our WFRP sessions.
With all the extra details added to the miniature he did end up taking quite some time to finish – but for a unique model I don’t mind it at all :-)

The Pictures

I’ve included 6 pictures to showcase all the various junk the poor guy is carrying around on his back.

The Dead: The Plague Cart

Another piece done for my project “The Dead” which basically includes corpses, casualties etc.

This time it’s a Plague Cart – It’s basically the Corpse Cart from Games Workshop, without zombies pulling the cart and a necromancer commanding the zombies.
I decided to paint the corpses before gluing them onto the Cart. This turned out to be quite a problem and as a result a few of the corpses are “floating” a bit. Fortunately you don’t really notice it on the table.

The Plague Cart has already been used several times in the ongoing WFRP campaign I’m a part of. A strange plague has hit Middenheim and corpses are being piled up.

The Dead: The Hanged Man

Another piece done for my project “The Dead” which basically includes corpses, casualties etc.

This time it’s a converted piece called “The Hanged Man”, I used a pole from The Hobbit terrain piece “Goblin Town”. I then added a Games Workshop zombie hanging from a rope, a kind note from the Witch Hunters who hunted this heretic down, a crow eating a piece of rotting flesh from the ground and that’s more or less it.

The result ended up being an excellent terrain piece that can be used for many settings.

Warhammer: Skeletons

We had to use some skeletons for an upcoming WFRP session, I thought it would be funny to convert some Games Workshop skeletons to appear like some dead empire soldiers. So I added some helmets and stuff for several of them.
It might be more fun to do with Zombies – Something I’ll consider for the future.

Warhammer: Undead Skeletons

Below you can see two pictures of all the 6 skeletons I made and painted. I’ll probably be making a few more soon, there’s always room for more skeletons :-)

The Dead: The Decapitated

Over the next few months I’ll be posting some pictures of a series I’ll be calling “The Dead”, it’ll be different sort of casualties and dead people (Not undead) – These miniatures can give a good eerie environment feeling when playing RPGs and Mordheim if placed in the right places. Anyway, here’s the first one: The Decapitated.
