Thank you guys!  :smile2:

In my opinion, empire metal and plastics troops from 90's have really better look than the 7th plastics ones. It was a great time for the hobby!

I propose you today a Marshal BSB on horse.  :ph34r:

















The model is from gamezone miniatures. I love this compagny, their minis are juste perfect. Here a pic with GW knight to show you the scale.



I just added some GW plume from states troops and knights. Here's a pic of WIP to show you the really light modification.



Hope you like it!  :::cheers:::

Colour scheme rocks and I really like the horses' barding. Great job!

Awesome army! I particularly dig the unusual armour design, black metal with gold edges.

One unrelated thing just occurred to me. Why does the Aldebrand Ludenhof model have "Karl Franz" written on his sword? Was that model maybe meant to represent a generic Empire general when originally created? Or is that a converted model with another sword?
The only good thing about 7th ed heads is that they look particularly inbred and superstitious which is perfect for Stirlanders

Your right sir, its a another sword from the demi griff kit. The original one was ridiculous small, so I remplace it by a bigger one!  8-)

Here so 2 hellblaster/volleygun, old models of course.  :happy:























I have also one canon and on mortar in preparation!

Ingenious conversion of those old spearmen into swordsmen.
Great job on those old warmachines. Pewter models can be tricky to work with :eusa_clap:

Keep 'em comin'. Studying every picture with satisfaction.  :::cheers:::

That Gamezone Engineer is really good. Might have to buy it someday.

How does your 6th ed Spearmen/Handgunners into Swordsmen project proceed. I'm doing something similar, and anything you do will inspire. :)
