Did some galleys for the game, these will be jacks of all trades, doubling up as most of the one wound ships across the fleets

I'm painting a small high elf fleet of 500pts for the game, above you can see an eagleship: basically a ballista platform that fires broadsides. Insted of the origial man o' war models I'll be going with dreadfleet as they are cheaper, bigger and more detailed. The problem with those is that there isn't a great variety of ships which makes proxies form other brands a must for some fleets.
To make the eagleship I had to remove the dragon and ram from the original "seadrake" model.
There are some cute dolphins around the base, I had to model a wave in the prow to cover the space where the ram was
The fleet's admiral sails in a dragonship, no tinkering with it since the dreadfleet ship represents it well enough, with the ram and a perched dragon to boot

I'm resurrecting my man o war hobby beginning by some shore fortresses. They're nedded for one scenario and as generic terrain. Two are standard medieval, while the third is a modern age fort for nations such as the empire or Bretonnia

Played another game of our mordheim campaign, my father was using a new dwarf warband so it would be their baptism of fire
The dorfs had to defend a pyramid where their treasure was stashed
My warband was composed of seven ogres, here the latest addition
I rushed to the stairs
The new ogre was killed by the dwarf noble. Unauspicious beginning!
The dwarf engineer dodged some native traps
The ogre guide charged a lone dwarf thunderer
Some of my ogres began climbing the pyramid, while my captain duelled with a slayer, giving him eventually the mighty doom he was looking for
The noble keps felling ogre after ogre
The stubborn engineer was eventually knocked down by a carnivorous plant
Finally my captain, Goldbeard, decided to take matters in his own hand, challenging the pesky noble
The guide finished off his oponent with ease
As did Goldbeard
The engineer also was done for, and with only two dwarfs remaining my father conceded
More Mordheim next year, with more warbands and, perhaps, a change of setting.
