Flagellants: the end is here!

Finally, these flagellants are done! If you remember, the initial regiment was composed of 10 models, including a beggar, a monk and a warrior priest (all from the Marauder Miniatures range), but some followers pointed that this unit was too clean for a band of crazy fanatics... and they were right.

The "Eureka" came from a picture of Sam Neill in John Carpenter's movie "In the Mouth of Madness", drawing crosses all over his clothes and skin... that plus a few conversion ideas to use and re-use the 5 MM65 models I had. 

In the end, I've reworked the initial flagellants, and I've painted 10 more models, including a dwarf and a donkey to fill two regiments of 8 models each (the maximum allowed by the Warhammer Armies book), plus 4 spares in case I play with other rules. 



 As I have no idea the way we can use them on the battelfield, here are the two bands aligned in two ranks.


And as I said, with the spares I have, I can also field a regiment of 20 fanatics.



That's it! Time to clean the mess on my desk and to go on holiday. After that, no idea what the next regiment will be.

  1. While I don't particularly like the sculpts, your painting of them is superb. A most awesome display.

  3. Thanks both of you! (and I agree, not the best part of the Marauder Empire range)

  5. These are the best painted Marauder flagellants I have ever seen, your style really works on them. But even you can't hide those massive feet!

    1. I know, I should have sculpted socks to hide these ugly feet :)

  6. You have a distinct ability to make old sculpts sing - they are stunning minis!

  11. Merci. Ouais, même si je ne suis pas allé au bout de toutes les idées (roue-cage et ogre flagellant), je suis quand même assez content du résultat final.

    1. T'emballe pas, je vais plutôt te peindre une armée de gobs pouilleux, ça ira plus à ton style de jeu je pense...
