Outstanding work!

Say, where could I read some more about these Matoreans? I was about to denounce thee a heretic and a consort to daemons before thinking that could be a misunderstanding and you don't meant to field them together *at the same side*... right? XD

HA!👆 thank you very much!
Not heretical thankfully 😸
I was putting them together as foes.  I planned to get the ral partha shaman an leader trolls plus another stone thrower to fill out that unit and all those spare tzeentch Deamons left over from my deamon army. I have a bunch of empire knights as well.  Getting stoked again to get this on the road after getting so close.

Matorea is a town in the Border Princes.

I've been using it as the port where my Olde World fluff family with the last name of Mardonia bases their fleet of ships from that I've had in various on-line campaigns.  There is some fluff regarding some of the Mardonia family as part of this thread ...

 http://warhammer-empire.com/theforum/index.php?topic=52632.0\

Currently to represent them on the table top, I have a unit of swordsmen, and a unit of handgunners, and they dress in blue and orange.

There is also some limited mention of Matorea on MadAlfred's site, along with a good bit of info on the Border Princes as a whole.

Artoban has taken the place name into the world of Dragon Rampant and/or AoS.

Ah, very nice!

I mean, I've been through some Border Princes material and the name hadn't rung any bells to me, but what a nice little thing to do.

Back when I was still doing Chaos Dwarfs I did the same with Zharr Naggrund - if the Lizardmen can fly off their pyramids, why couldn't the Chaos Dwarfs, through Shadow magic, snatch their own ziggurats away? :) Standing between the Realms of Fire and Shadow, there stood mighty Zaramuskharaz' Citadel. It was a nice way to keep up with my favorite OCs into the new setting, although I am more unto Ogres and Chaos Mortals there days over there.

Painting Orange can be tricky, in my experience. They are looking pretty great, Artoban!

My current Dragon Rampant foes are Chaos Warriors lead by Crom the Conqueror, as well as pals' Perry Plastics XVth century fiefdoms and some other Imperials as well. XD

See. This is how it happens - GP - inspiration and new miniatures, 023 - battle report on a 3x3 board, - shadespire - Ralpartha sale, buy troll, look at new troops, raise old thread.

Insidious.

When I was complaining to my son about building models, he dodged the obvious ploy to get him to make these, offered up his wisdom from when he was a mechanic and dealing with the dreaded tires and oil changes Ď when you hate something that cant be avoided, get good at it and get it done as fast as possibleí

Built with the support of my hobby cat (having a dubious building rapport), my batch of Fireforge Northmen warriors (compliments of GP)
Who will be a squad in my Dragon army. Iím rethinking the whole DR set up. I was going to go with a Matorean theme but since itís such a huge AoS theme, I think I'll  go with a different idea as yet unknown. Iíve decided I will get the rest of the Ralpartha trolls (another 6)
To give me a small troll army. It will only cost $37 cdn for them so itís a bargain.  Those figures have really grown on me. At first I didnít like them. A reduced unit of daemons are up for fun. They were leftovers from my Tzeentch army. I have a huge pile of empire troops I can choose to make up more protagonists. They have already shown up before but this is a new start.

I like the new look!  I'm thinking it might be good to use a lighter brown on the shoulder straps to have a piece of the detail come out more.  Also, I like how the brown colors of the hats are slightly different than the uniforms, and that some still have a red color too. :eusa_clap: :::cheers:::

Those straps did kind of disappear. I think I have something that will work. Iím glad you like the colours. Iím grabbing the brown primer tomorrow and hope to get going on that. I need to come up with a plan to differentiate the warriors, gunners, archers. I also have a cannon kicking around too a day unit of old great swords. Also a load of knights as well. With 12 trolls and deamons, they will need some help

I went through my extra units from my old army and found a few for conversion to DR. I only had 10 great swords so I found and old champ from a partial command squad and an old battlestandard guy (bastard was always top heavy and falling over) that I cut off his flag, removed his pinned on sword from his back. Great idea till I looked and saw it was a sheathed sword so I removed his left arm, cut away his horn he was holding and reattached in the new way. Thus 12 great swords out of 10.
I have a bunch of knights as well plus 5 panther knights from warlord that may provide the mobile portion of this band.

It is nice to see 12 of them.  They could be in the 6 figure unit category of a Foot Men-At Arms with the special rule Ferocious in Lion Rampant.

I like that idea☝️
Hereís a wip of the northmen plus the rest of the crew so far.  Based yesterday, a few colours today. Screwed up there shoulders - damn my no good eyesight. Need shield interior and I think Iíll throw a decal in. On the box itís blue with a white wolf head. I could do the same and use a white space wolf head decal. Not sure yet.

Thank you very much GP! Feedback makes everything worthwhile. Next up are some very easy halberdiers to convert as they are mostly painted. Iím start building the archers next but my brown primer crapped out with half a can still available. Might bea bit of a wait to get more.
