Taking The Battle To The Streets

Well, since an unemployed hobbyist finds it quite difficult to procure fresh models for a growing army, I've decided to redirect my focus for the time being from expanding my army for bigger fantasy games and instead working on painting, while my vampire Jean-Jacques Von Carstein heads off to the city of Mordheim for some Gangs of New York-style violence.

After barely setting foot in the ruined city, Jean-Jacques has already had a chance to bloody his blade on the Dwarf band of treasure hunters known only as Gandren's Greybeards. After putting Gandren out of action (earning the pesky dwarf some fear-causing scars), Jean-Jacques fled the street fight (the scenario being played), yet still came out on top since Gandren couldn't search for wyrdstone.

Also a new addition to the force! Two necromancers, knocked up from the empire battle wizards box. Photo's are pending and should be up in a day or two. There's the masked alchemist-cum-necromancer who disfigured his face in an unfortunate smelting incident, and hides it behind a mask of pure silver, and there's a dispossessed Priest of Morr who, after turning completely insane following the comet crashing into Mordheim, has joined Jean-Jacques' warband/army.

The Arisen

Well, my Vampire Counts are sitting comfortably at around 1,250 points atm. So far the army stands at 2 Vampires, 60 Zombies, 2 Corpse Carts, 10 Dire Wolves, 10 Crypt Ghouls and 8 Black Knights.

To the left is my vampire Jean-Jacques Von Carstein, a Frenchie disciple of the Red Duke who has claimed the Von Carstein name as his own, and will defend that claim to the death. Directly behind him are the ghouls, Back right is a unit of zombies who are yet to survive a game, and to the back left is the unit of zombies who saw off a unit of charging khorngor in one round of combat. These uber-zombies received their paintjob in recognition of all their hard work.

Here we have a low resolution (yes, I'm using the camera on my phone) picture of my first corpse cart. So far this little beauty has racked up two Khorne Chariots and a beastherd in kills. In total I have two, although the second one isn't fully put together (tbh neither is this one but its a damn sight closer than the other one).
Will post pictures of my crypt ghouls and Black Knights later, along with the Dire wolves.
