How does this
Legacy Warband thing work anyway?

As a reminder, all contributors agree to paint and contribute one model to the pre-agreed theme (space pirates - see below). You paint the model and post it to your friendly neighbourhood organiser (me - axiom). All contributors are entered into a draw, and the winner out of the hat wins the warband for their collection.

What's the timeframe involved?
Models to be with me (axiom) by Saturday 28th November 2015, with the draw taking place in 1st week in December (with the ambition to have the warband with the winner by Christmas). I have taken the executive decision to keep the longer timeframe as per the 2014 project, conscious that several potential contributors were concerned about a shorter timeframe and the ability to source, build and paint a suitable model.

What models can I contribute?
The theme is space pirates; suitable models might include human mercenaries, rogue space elves or orks with shoulder squigs and bionic peg-legs. Renegade Space Marines, deserters and ragged scum will also find a home here. Feel free to use a fantasy model and stick a lasgun or bionic claw on it...simply use your imagination and see what happens! The project is an Oldhammer project, but that doesn't mean you need to donate a vintage Citadel model - if you have something that looks right from a modern range or alternative manufacturer, then that's all well and good!

How will this warband look coherent?
Good question; by its nature, a rag-tag band of space corsairs will be varied and individualistic...in fact that's probably part of the appeal with this theme.

Spot Colour: We have agreed to use turquoise as a bright spot colour which should be used somewhere on all models (hat, scarf, gun casing, boots, striped trousers etc) to show the allegience of this disparate gang of scum.

Basing: As for basing, we have agreed that the winner will do the basing for the warband. This will ensure that a) the warband is coherently based and b) the warband fits into their own collection. However, models should be provided on a round slottabase, with the slots filled with putty, greenstuff or similar, and painted black.

How do I take part?
This thread is where you formally stick your hand up and commit to participating. Simply reply to in the thread, stating what model you are likely to contribute (this can change at a later date), and I will amend the contributor list above.

Any questions?!

OK then folks - stick your hand up if you fancy contributing. The key (only?) decision we probably need to make is on colour scheme. Given the theme, I don't think we need a coherent colour scheme like last time, but a consistent spot colour to tie them all together is probably a good idea. With that in mind, I've stuck up a poll.

Should we start a separate progress thread or post it here?
