Might be a bit too steampunk... but I have the figure on the right of this image?

Could be an apprentice?

You could totally get away with it. There are no wrong choices with this game.

Except Gogo's...

They would be wrong

Talking of models, I have started looking at mine.

Anyone object to a mini with flintlock pistols?

I'm thing they count as a crossbow..

Not at all, I started down that road with my undead pirates. As long as all the pistols or muskets count as xbows then it's great. The only problem I found that I was running out variations and starting to say:

"the muskets are xbows, the two swords are two handed weapons if he doesn't have a dagger and the pistols are daggers..unless they don't have a sword and they're bows in that case".

It's still workable because you should have a sheet with them all written down on it but I think it needs to be an obvious map from figure to what it's meant to be (eg: the muskets are all xbows) to keep things quick and easy.

Quick scan for some warmachines types and this leaps out: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pirate-Queen- ... 4ae85ee850

This ones ok but would need some work. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Privateer-Pre ... 3ab05e7211

Can't see too clearly but these are promising: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Satyxis-Blood ... 4d15b55da7

Possibly even one of these: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Cryx-Revenant ... 4196f55177

There are some gorgeous figures in the warmachine series!

It's easy re: weapons as all models are uniformly armed (all thieves, all thugs etc.) until you can add 1 magic weapon maximum.

I have tonnes of cryx stuff....

Problem is it can only really be necromancer.

I'm off to dig in the shed

But necromancers are ace so that's ok! :)

Give me a shout if you find that pirate queen especially.

Finally had my Warband out for its first quest into the city! Turns out that on the edge of the ruins is a little fishing village that looks a lot like the area we raided when Cutlass was being played, who would have guessed?!
Image
You can tell from the picture (I'm on the right) that it's not all going my way, my archers came unstuck vs the crossbows (the move and shoot is great but that extra damage is a killer!) and in the main brawl on the left I lost both hounds and a bear but took out a thug in return. I did make it away with a few treasures though and we used the Peter-Pig turn counting thing (starting at 19) and it worked brilliantly, even when the number got low you never quite knew if you had one more turn or if this was the last so no stalling on the edge of the table with treasure!

One thing that setting up a game did (apart from highlight the fact I need some alternative terrain) is remind me that I hadn't made any treasure tokens so I've rustled up a few crates of loot, converted some barrels to be full of coins and created a stash of weapons. These are all fine but what's really important is that there's a "Reveal Secrets" spell that can add an extra treasure token close by, and what's the best secret treasure to reveal? Well, I give you...the "Secret Font of Nuff-El", rumour has it this is where the rules of the infamous bloodsport were handed down to the first ever Blood Bowl players!

It needs some work with the paint brush but the aim is to have the football floating in the air above a pool in the basin of the font :)

Looks great Buckley!

Yeah, I think more terrain is key. A wizard out in the open is a dead wizard.

That table looks good!

I've been thinking more about my Warband...

I love this figure- I'm thinking she's a great Witch...
