It all looks great, man!
I'm a gothenburger as well, and I would feel honoured if we could meet and battle sometime.

Raise the brimming goblet to thy lip!
Yet a sip! Ditto one, ditto two, ditto three….

Allright, I am finally about to finish my unit of 10 Knights.
This is a newly founded order called the Knights of the Silver Crown.
Fluff will follow when they are all ready.

Hobbits are stupid, Talabecs are thieves and Averlanders reek of horse shit.

They are ok, but horses seem to be a bit too simple ... You should try to add a few gold and green details on their armor ...

Yes, that is the next and almost final thing to do before basing....I think I´´ll go for green on the horses armour and no such gold, since gold is quite well represented elsewhere on the minis.
I will also make the banner, which will be mostly black I think....with details in colour.

Also, the silver/metal looks to clean. Not used, even a short period outside gives it a little bit of dust and dirt on the metal. So, maybe some brown and black wash on it...

My travel to Wurtbad and the meeting with the Count ant court went very well!
We have now a contract regarding fundings to rebuild the brave, but oh so un-assembled forces of our town.
To begin with, I will get some new uniforms for my halbedier regiment and the River Patrol unit that resides here. Further on...oh, wait... my scouts are reporting that something is happening in the Hundsheimer Forest. I hope it hasn´t been invaded by some foul creatures...

Gee, it turns out that a flagellant warband has settled in a long-abandoned chapel ruin in the deepest, rocky parts of the forest. Their leader is a well-known figure in these parts, a dreaded witch hunter by the name of Tobias Steinhart. He has wandered around the northeast parts of Stirland for years. Really brutal guy, makes my heat chill. I´d better say some prayers and donate gold to the monastary here in town...




Here is Tbias after being made darker. Devlan Mud worked perfect for the entire model.



I made this model a couple of years ago, before I hade the new washes. Recently I made him a little darker, simply by painting thin layers of darker tones on certain places and washing him with Devlan Mud.

The Knights of the Silver Crown are now fully assembled. From around the Empire, 10 knights who claim heritage from Wolfsfurt have come to form the first unit. I have given them the old fortress just north of town to establish the order. Finally we will be able to compete with the damned Talabec knights in Rittershafen.

Wow, they look great! Perhaps you should have brought them today? They might have had some better luck in driving off the treehuggers  :::cheers:::

Thanx people.
Yes of course my faithful brave Stirlander would have put up a better fight than your coward sissy-kniggets from the wrong side of the river.
The purple was a test that I liked and stuck with....maybe re-paint, but it has taken sooo long to get these guys finished, so i dont think I want to get into it again...

They look grate General!

I also like the round shields, and I think your bases with the gray and green makes them knights stand out even more.

Good work!  :::cheers:::

Re: Stirland forces of Wolfsfurt: PIKEMEN WIP

Yesterday evening, as the sun set over our cold, snowy land, trumpets once again sounded from the walls and disturbed me while eating and drinking warm beer with my friends. My guard captain came and told me that a handful of soldiers had arrived, looking for shelter from the winter night. So I went out to see who they were and where they came from. There were ten of them, armed with long pikes; mercenaries they said, hoping to find employment over the winter. There were no officer with them, but they said that their whole company, 30 or more, were on their way north from Wurtbad. They had served Count Anderssen during the summer and fall but had been dismissed. My good friend the Count had told them that I might be in need of some strong and able hands, so they went to see me.
And what can I say? Of course! I have always wanted a pike company in my army! I am going to pay them with the gold we got when we hit a pirate hideout just before the snow fell some weeks ago. If they are any good, I plan to keep them for a long time.

Those knights are striking and original- well done. I actually like the splash of unusual purple, although I'd have made it more muted. Jolly good show.

Actually I didn´t know, but Wiki knows. =)
"The pike was an extremely long weapon, varying considerably in size, from 3 to 7.5 metres (10 to 25 feet) long.[2] It had a wooden shaft with an iron or steel spearhead affixed. The shaft near the head was often reinforced with metal strips called "cheeks" or langets. When the troops of opposing armies both carried the pike, it often grew in a sort of arms race, getting longer in both shaft and head length to give one side's pikemen an edge in the combat; the longest pikes could exceed 6 m (22 feet) in length."

Here is the whole article, including pictures. Very interesting read.

Re: Stirland forces of Wolfsfurt: PIKEMEN WIP-colours
« Reply #73 on: December 29, 2010, 09:12:47 AM »
I have decided to make my Pikemen wear lots of different colours and not a united scheme. They are mercenaries and I want them to look so. This will also give me an opportunty to test a variety of colour schemes, patterns and other stuff, which surely will prove useful. As my army grows I´m going to make units from other places around the Empire than just Stirland.

If you are thinking about how some colours will work, let me know and one of my about 40 Pikemen will wear them.

I am forming the town guard of Wolfsfurt itself, some of my hardest, battle-proven and most reliable men. The unit always consists of about 50 men, and their main purpuse is to keep order and security in the town. In times of outright war, the halberds is, together with my Knights,  the center of my army, around which my other forces are formed.
