Unit of warriors led by a hero:
I had a spare shield, so I added it to the hero, because I already have one of this model in the warband, so I thought it would make him a little different.
The Stone Colossus is a creation that the harbinger of the warband can build when he gains enough Ka (equivalent to levels in an RPG or something like that anyway). It is a slow but tough juggernaut that can level buildings with its bare fists. I suspect that it will also be an arrow magnet in any game we play.
The whole warband:
This is the whole warband. It consists of:
- The harbinger (front centre)
- A master of words or magic-user (centre left)
- An artifex, who crafts items of power for selected characters in the warband (centre right)
- The Stone Colossus (rear)
- Two units of warriors, each led by a hero
The figures shown here weigh in at between 850 and 900 points, depending upon how I rate the heroes (they could be bought as champions or heroes). To bring it up to the starting warband default level of 1000 points, I would add a unit of Khemru slingers to give me some missile capability.
You will notice that the newer figures are a different colour from the older ones. This is because I tried a different painting technique on these ones. Instead of doing lots of highlighting, I just washed the figures in a stone colour and allowed the white undercoat and the wash to provide the shading. Then I dipped the figures to increase the contrast a bit. I think it worked quite well and I would not be too embarrassed to field these figures on the table.
