I like the Alcatani, Pizarros, and Bretonnians. :icon_cool:


Yeah i'm really happy with how those turned out, except for the basing on the Bretonnians.

Looking better all the time, I assume that your hand is better now, what happened? Glad to see that you are back at it.  Don't neglect your  homework and school, high marks equate to a better job which means more money which means you can buy more of the stuff you want.  Keep up the good work and practice practice practice. steveb

Those handgunners are absolutely marvellous - I love 'em. And the standard bearer is most excellent.

I must say, I should make more of an effort with my bases. I have thousands of figures on the same style simple green flocked base, as I thought over-doing bases made a figure look too 'busy'. But your bases look good so a bit of fancy basing can work!

@ obi: Caesar said that phrase when crossing the Rubicon in 49 BCE, thus igniting Civil War in the Roman Republic. Sorry, I have a soft spot for ancient history, and the question was calling my name...:p

Its kind of long story with what happened to my hand, but i got a fairly deep puncture wound between my ring finger and my pinky. I keep my grades up and I only paint on the weekends.

Thanks I kind of hate adding the dead grass I used to my bases its very tedious.

Well I thought i would do a small update. The first mini I will show I suppose is a conversion. I found the Bret Knight body and shield on the floor at my GW so I'd figure to make a mini. The halberd is from militia box.I made him into a Bret spearmen/halberdier, what I like about him is he'll help make my Brets fit in a little better. Afterall hes got the pants. I always wanted to think as that unit as a bunch of levied troops who couldn't afford good weapons.

The other pics I have shown you guys earlier but since they are examples of my better work and some of my favorite units I have ,I thought I should show them  properly. :happy: They are now magnetized too except for the Alcatani. :happy: I'd appreciate any tips you have.
                                                                                 Thanks

Thanks, LOL Guy Fawkes thats a good idea for a mini. Could make him standing on a bunch of powder kegs or something. Past my time period though.

Well time for a small update. To start off, late last month I got back from my vacation to Sicily and this is the first project I've completed since I got back. Its a metal cannon that I had lying on my desk collecting dust. It had a spring that let you shoot things out of it, but it broke so I decided to draft it into the Imperial army. I'm not very fond of the carriage, its too navalish for my taste. The decorations on the cannon come from the artillery sprue and the   6th ed. shield sprues. The paint didn't come out the way I wanted but I guess its decent enough.  Let me know what you think.

                                                                                                                                          Thanks

Well I finally finished my spearmen off. :icon_razz: I was going to give more of an update but my camera died. I was thinking about taking a picture of the guys with the fancy uniforms from that unit because I'm really happy with how some of them turned out. Ill post a picture of a WIP unit filler. Let me know what you think. All suggestions are welcome.

Crisp paint job and solid colour combo. These two make your army stand out. I really like your rendering of the yellow and more especially the metal parts  :mrgreen:

Well I got the camera working again. First the pics of the more flashy spearmen.
       

Now to the unit filler I promised. I couldnt take WIP pics but this should suffice. Anyhow I mad the basic stuff a Gamesday. Cut the ribbons and junk off the waist of the yellow/red guy. I sculpted the mail skirts on the yellow guy and the man on the ground. I also sculpted the baskplate on the yellow guy which I wasnt planning on doing but I had to cover up what was on his back. Really happy with how it turned out and lot of fun to paint. It didnt take me long at all to paint it up. I think i might wanna add a unit of the black/white/red guys since they were so fast to paint. :blush: Anyway before I get too off subject let me know what you think.
                                                                                                                                 Thanks

Now that is an especially cool colour scheme. I really like your painting and to me your army has a lot of character. Heck it looks like a medieval/renaissance Mediterranean army, like Aragonese or Sicilian (very near and also similar to the Armies of my home island of Malta at the time). Keep up the good work. PS: lovely GS work there   :eusa_clap:
