Grymm Dark Disciples
« on: February 13, 2014, 01:09:00 PM »
Hi

I've had this thing for the Dark Disciples ever since I set eyes on them in the Spacefarers rulebook. It was the organisation rather than the models (although I did really want S30 Dark Disciple with Bolt gun and Powerglove in 1981). Anyway...

Whilst looking for some rules for my Dalek army I came across No Limits http://wargamesunlimited.net/nolimits/index.html, and the Dark Disciples were recalled, and after a browse through Hasslefree a Grymm reworking came to mind.

So here are the Dark Disciples redone with Grymm https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bw4HNTNPtY4yR3NDbWlpbDBIYlU/edit?usp=sharing
 
I have made my first order and once I have painted and customised them (for example HFD014 Hatherley needs a fuel tank for his Combi Flamer-Hammer) I will update the pics in the guide (which I filched borrowed offa Hasslefree).

Any feedback much appreciated.

That's pretty cool, takes me back to earlier days of GW and their side projects etc. When they had character and weren't plastic robots in the shape of whatever army :)

Will keep an eye on this.

I loved those old rulebooks- So sparse, so much space for your imagination- before they became sales catalogues.

Converting- I think that making the fantasy dwarves fit in with the Grymm is going to be where the main conversion action is going to happen. They have got to look a bit "modern"or at least not look so archaic. So whilst awaiting delivery I have spent my time doing colour schemes. Trying to find a balance between culty and military. If the colour details are right then I think that will help them look like they belong to the same team. I think it is going to be black, dark red and orange, all muted.  On the computer it looks very nice, we will have to see what happens when I actually try and recreate it on the minis.
