Like your terrain, the cannon backstory, and the attitude of creating it all yourself. Always reminds me of the real salt of this hobby.  :-)

And I am going to add Lord Commissar Gustaf Mannerheim and his personal detail of stormtroopers from the 21st Pohjolan or The Black Arrow. The 21st will be inspired by a special finnish unit, Independent Battalion 21, with the nickname Musta Nuoli or The Black Arrow. It was a unit of volunteer prisoners, mostly communists political ones but also others who had commited lesser crimes. In exchange for serving their country their sentences would be pardoned.

A husband of my grandmothers sister served and died in the original Battalion 21 when the soviets stormed the island they where defending as the soviets made a suprise assault across the frozen finnish bay in the last days of the Winter war of 1939-1940.

So it is in partially a punishment detail, Pohjolans who have been found lacking in their faith towards the Imperium have been given one last chance to redeem themselves. But to be given the opportunity to join the 21st is considered a huge honour on Pohjola. Commissars trained at Schola Progenium at Pohjola have the opportunity to be assigned a detail from the Black Arrows.

The systems of Pohjola and Prokhorovka have a long going relationship of both feuds and more peaceful interactions. However, the coming of the Dark Imperium made the systems close ranks. They were lucky enough to be able to maintain communications and aid each others defence. Both systems have remained loyal to Terra and the new leadership in the form Robotue Guilliman. However, the years of isolation have seen the ranks of the 21st Black Arrows swell.

Not Vostroyans. I use Valhallans for my veteran squad and Cadian pieces with greatcoat bodies from Wargames factory. Kitbash is your friend.

I would like to have Vostroyans to form somekind of a command squad for my company commander. Looks more badass.

I have run out of Greatcoats though so I may be forced to make mortars out of common cadians.

Then there is the mounted units. There will be rough riders! Just need lots of horsies and lower bodies and... well, many pieces. Preferably there should be 30 Rough riders all in all but I may have to settle for just one unit. It will be so much work otherwise.

Unfortunately I have no time to paint at the moment. :Ohmy:
... and for the next two weeks there will be a break in my blog here because I will travel to Moscow. :::cheers:::
But before my journey begins I want to show more of my terrain. :smile2:

A hill with a magic portal:

I also seem to have published the image on imgur itself

You need to publish at least one photo in imgur to make the rest become visible.

Like the mounted hero. Those old Battlemaster figures are quite nice.

Maybe more highlights in the caparison and feather, some colour to the shield, and blacklining or shading to separate the copper parts of the lance from the blue shaft?

The skull is a bit rough. And I would place it closer to the lance shaft. And such a long banner would be a good place to try the PVA trick to make it flow.  :wink:
