I started this collection back in 1994, I was at a gaming convention and they had an open play. I took up an 3rd edition Empire Army and never looked back.... I love Warhammer  :smile2:

It's bad that warhammer might die but it would be a tragedy if it stays dead!

Very neat Zak.  I would be proud to game with these as is.  They are what I call, a bit more than a table top ready army.  I am not a big fan of the old school all green & totally flocked bases though but I guess its a matter of taste  :::cheers:::

Two things I love the most are your shields which really stand out and the wonderful spears.

But the army as a whole is very tasty. Gotta love those greatswords (Reiksguard)!

Thanks Steveb for your comment...its just something you have to practice over and over again i only started to leave it when i was able to get a good result..i hold the tip of the lance and than just slowly turn as i hold the paint on the shaft than go back over it with the darker color. i also use a high light color to bring the swirl out some

Wow... :Ohmy: I really love these cavalery units. Especially the lances of your knights look great with that flags you have put on them. And you have a really huge unit of pistoliers there. What about increasinf the number of outriders to 15 as well? :wink:

What can I say...?  :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap:

SURE 15 outriders would be ideal!! but honestly i hate painting them i don't know why the pistoliers (no problem) but i see the  usefullness of having large units of outriders after reading some of you all's posts about them....hey thanks for the complements

Cool knights!. Those are old Chaos knight helmets aren't they?

The banner looks great too.

And I like the first picture of the rockets too.
