Is that an Ogre in the background? Really cool looking regiment! :)

Nice work!
Perhaps a brigher flesh tone could help to enfasize the whole model. But even this, the result is pretty cool.

Thanks

That is indeed an ogre. It is from Westfalia miniatures.

The ogre actually has pretty light skin, but it is hunched over and has a big brim on the hat, so there is a lot of shadow in the face.

Holy bears!!
Mierce models are splendid, and this unit is really unique. Congratulations  :eusa_clap:
Unfortunately, the resin quality Mierce's use, their really expensive prices and the bad customer's support, it's a bad thing.

The resin was alright in my opinion, it took a while before they shipped, but no major issues with my order.
Price is certainly not cheap, but now that they have started to have sales with often 30-50% off, it isn´t too bad either. The sculpts are really good, so I think the prices are ok for what you get.

I have not gotten to paint as much as I would like recently, but I have finished a troop of Droyaska: https://mandollies.com/2017/09/27/droyaska-kislev-weaponmaster-infantry/

Great unit and great use of fluff.
I always thought Ulrika was a fantastic model, and one you see rarely in an army.

The other Kislevite figure that would fit well is the Bear Handler/Tamer - bare chest and convertible hands.

I have used several Horse Archer torsos on militia legs to create varied Kislev infantry, and they work well and it is easy to greenstuff some 'differences' with furry hats and trims on boots or jackets.

Thanks  :biggriin:

The bear tamer is one of the very few Kislev models that I have not managed to procure. If I had him, he would certainly join the second group of Droyaska. I will get him at some point, I am sure :) Using militia legs is a good idea, I will investigate that route for conversions.

I have been thinking about taking another round of army pics now that I have added a bunch of infantry. I will finish up one more unit and then do a new army shot.

There is not really a clearly defined end goal for this army, it is a hobby project where I just add what I want to work on next. I have some units planned though. Another troop of Droyaska is partially painted, so that is probably the next unit up. Then I have some units I want for gaming reasons, which is a war altar of Ursun and two troops of ungol lancers.

Then I have the long list of units that will be slowly adding to the army, like more Kossars, a troop or two of Streltsi, kreml guard, Gryphon legion, Gryphon legion grand master, more winged lancers, Tsar Boris and other characters.

I also have a backlog consisting of the supporting Tilean heavy regiment (Braganzas, Riccos, Volands), the empire 1st mechanized regiment (war wagons, steam tanks, outriders) and the people´s crusade (fanatics, witch hunters, warrior priests, questing knights) that will eventually join my Kislev army in their northern crusade to stop the end times.

Aaaaaand I have started on the opposition, with a Norscan chaos army: https://mandollies.com/2017/09/23/the-norscans-are-coming/
