Very handsome halberdiers. They look ready to join a mob and go after your vampire lord.

The top one is an Ostlander, right? The bottom one is from Talabheim? Anyway - they're really nice. :eusa_clap:

Very nice. Clean and intense. Just one comment: maybe a sand a little bit smaller? And a bit of grass?

Thanks for your comments as allways guys!

I haven't really thought about the idea of using them in Mordheim clash for example. I don't see it as a problem having a province specific warband ruleswise but consisting of different grizzled soldiers from all across the Empire. Gonna have to try that  :happy:

@ Rogers Kul - For some reason I don't seem to pay to much attention to the base (at least for now). I have based all these guys with this gritty gravel. I might do something with that after more of them are painted...

I like the leather tones on the hat of the top guy. Really nice.

Thanks Warlord! Yeah, I thinks these are elves from Rackham/ Cadwallon miniatures, but they seem to be not available anymore...

Thanks Xathrodox86! After some 15 hours of work, I really started to hate him as well. I' ll probably stick with regular scale models...

That Chaplain is pretty inpressive.

Thank you Rogers Kul!

Here is the finished model - 8,5 hours of paintwork in total...
I'm not really satisfied with the power sword, but I'm not sure I can make him any better...

Nothing fancy, just a really simple quick paintjob. Second quy took me actually just one hour to paint (thanks to some dirty pre-shading  :icon_biggrin:)

How much would you charge per model to paint to this standard, or a bit below it? I'm more looking for good-enough and mass production, if that wouldn't be artistically painful for you to do.

Hey Konrad von Richtmark! As I have said - this model took me about an hour of work (he is fairly simple, not too much colours either). For an hour of paintwork I charge 120 czech crowns, which is approximately 4,2 pounds/ 5,5 dollars. I was also recently commission with more than 60 40K orcs to be painted in 40 hours, but they didn't look that nice...

That second attempt at a sword was much better IMO. Those lightnings looked like veins. Still, they'd look great on some Chaos model. :-P

That sounds like a very generous hourly rate. Would you be able to do two or even three models per hour, if using quick and "good enough" techniques? Just to show an example of my own:



This guy was made the same way I'm doing all my state troops: Flat colours for everything first. Wash everything in black except for skin and facial hair, which is washed in flesh wash. Leave everything else as is, but re-highlight the cloth and the skin with the same colour that was originally used.

It's nothing fancy, but satisfactory for my purposes. I probably wouldn't commission anyone to paint me Empire, I'm rather thinking about another, new army all in one go, but this should showcase the quality standard I'm looking for.

Seems easy, but I' d say it really depends on the model/s. If you have uniformed guys like empire, simple coloured outfits like for example night goblins, then why not...

Alright, I'll remember you and revisit the issue if I realize some of the other army projects I've been thinking about.

Way back on the pistolier horse, perhaps making the saddle and the horses flesh more different might be good.  At the same time, it is a very good standard of overall painting for that horse, and I like it! :icon_cool: :eusa_clap: :::cheers:::
