    Dungeon Crawl - A Warhammer Quest Painting Log

    I'm painting up bits and bobs for Warhammer Quest right now as we've just stopped playing Necromunda and Mordhiem isn't going to happen for a while yet.

    I'm not really planning to paint one of every single model I'll ever need for WHQ, but I do want to paint them until I get bored. Also as there's some cross over between my Mordhiem and WHQ miniatures (Beastmen & Undead in particular) this means I can potentially make progress with both sets at the same time.

    I'm going to try and keep the heroes right at the start of the thread and then put various monsters up as and when I do them. As such I'm reserving the first 5 posts to allow me to keep all the heroes together in once place. I'm also painting the Heroes in the same scheme as the one on their box/character card art as I'm fond of those colour schemes. Also I'll only be putting up finished pictures, no WIPs.

    Here are the first three Heroes:

    The Chaos Warrior:


    The Imperial Noble:


    The Pit Fighter:


    Warrior Priest:

    I love Warhammer Quest! Such fantastic models... That chaos Warrior is a classic!

    Great painting too, they look really nice. A very classic old school feel to them

    Also here's a doorway (only one I'll photograph, promise!) and a based giant spider.

    Wonderful painting as always -fen-, I do enjoy a good dose of WHQ (it also happened to be my first GW purchase as well ). The bases on the Warriors are a great idea!

    Re: Dungeon Crawl - A Warhammer Quest Painting Log

    Thanks Mr F. I've decided to use the bases to mark the different types of model out. So the warriors are all going to get black and white checked style bases while the monsters get more traditional greys and browns.

    I've got a question for any Mordheim players who might see this, I'm going to be using the plastic Mordheim skaven for this but I want them to double in function with Mordheim itself. So what weapons should I arm the Skaven with to maximise their functionality in Mordheim?

    Very cool stuff. Your minis have an old school look about them, which is really nice and refreshing to see.

    Ah, more old school mini's! Me like, me like.
    Your painting is superb too and does those nice models justice.

    I think I might dig out my old plastic WHQ characters and give them a repaint since you've brought the game back to my attentions.

    As for the Skaven question, I think Spears are rather handy in both systems (Strike First in Mordheim / attack from two squares away in WHQ if I recall correctly)

    Nice work so far -Fen- on those WHQ heroes, they look very nice. I plan on getting into WHQ in the near future too, having bought a complete box set of the game on ebay. So I will be keeping an eye on this thread for sure.

    Re: Dungeon Crawl - A Warhammer Quest Painting Log

    I'm still not sure what the old school look is. But anyway, here's a skeleton I just painted up. Sadly he's the last of his kind as the rest live in my Khemri BB team. Which means I'm going to have to purchase some of the new Vampire Count Skeletons to do the rest.

    Still, here he/she/it is:skull:



    Nothing flashy or clever, just a quick and simple job that gets it done.

    Nice stuff you've got here. As to the Mordheim question I disagree about spears, they're far too expensive and takes two hands to use. One of the most cost effective way to arm skaven (henchmen, at least) in Mordheim is to give them club, (free) dagger and sling. No armour or helmets.

    Nice painting -fen-, it's really good to see some paintbrush-lovin' given to some older models.

    Regarding Skaven in Mordheim, although I haven't played them, I've played lots of other warbands. A good general rule is to keep henchman cheap initially, and spend the gold on your heroes. Since they generate more gold, you then get more henchmen. They'll keep dying anyway so keep 'em cheap!

    Hmm, I'll hold off on assembling the Skaven for a little while then. Fortunately I don't need them anytime soon as I can use the identical clan rats until I've painted up everything else relevant.

    The Bretonnian Knight is next, unfortunately I've discovered the one I have is missing his shield. I don't suppose anyone has one kicking about they'd let go? I'd pretty much take any one with a Fleur-di-lis or a Griffon rampant on it. But this is the original shield here.

    We don't have permission to look at that pic. I could scrounge up a very old bret shield with a fleur de lis, but I'm in Sweden, where do you live?

    I fixed the link. It should work ok now. I'm located in the UK.

    Edit: I finished the Knight (sans shield), he's up in the third post. I'll replace the picture once I get a suitable shield.

    Well now this brings back fond memories of a great game. I really should buy the boxed set from ebay some time. Anywho, excellent paint jobs as always fen, especially the Knight. I'm eager to see some gribbly monsters though, in particular the minis from the Lair of the Orc Lord were great sculpts (I always did favour the baddies over the goodies during my WFB days).
