well then, I some how missed that, well hype has hit max. :-D
for the past 2 years, I have sat in my cage, watching the owners put me in small, translucent spheres, and dump small, rock like food, into my cage. But no longer!, I have broken free of the shackles of being a hamster and now!, I paint, as a hamster can not do much more, mostly our small life span

     From the looks of it, they are a mix of GW WFB figures, mainly 6th edition, with large amounts of converting and kitbashing having been done, partly using complementary 7th edition plastics.

Yes You are right. But it is not that much of conversion. Head swap and a long Pike are the main things. And for the first rank ones, simply 6th edition bodys with actual edition arms.

Hopefully I will be able to continue here, after I finish my pleasent suprise nect week.

Those Empire/Landsknecht pike-men look really cool. Not sure about having charging on front rank. Makes the figures hard to front up against the enemy. Many many moons ago when I used to play ECW I sold off all pike and charge to replace with upright pikes. So much easier to put models in base contact and reduces repair work after the wargame.
Multi colours on figures looks great, just need large unit 50 to 100 strong, should hold the centre for a while.

Thank You scrubber.
I actually exactly have 100 of them. But it will take 5 livetimes to paint them  :engel:

I had exactly the same concerns with the pikes but I will solve the problem by giving them a large regiment base which is long enough to allow other regiments to reach the base. I will place some casualities and material on it.

I did some clear progress with my litter and my general, Friedrich von Eichenfels (I like this name, I think this will be his name. Full Version: Rittmeister Friedrich, Freiherr von Eichenfels). Rittmeister is a German/Austrian rank in former imperial forces. Its like a captain of the cavallerie. This is his official rank he officiates when he fights in Karl Franzs army. Freiherr is the rank of nobility. It means he owns land and is his own lord, subjected to King and Emperor. And Eichenfels is the handed name of the island, he built his residence on. Inspired by the great small storys by Sergeant Henry and the name greatly inspired by Manfred, Freiherr von Richthofen, better known as Red Baron.

I would really like to post some new pictures but first I have to solve the Photobucket problem  :icon_rolleyes:

I just remembered this thread again. If you want there to have been a ruin already on the island that Eichenfels used as a basis for his residence, well, how about the following variation on the story I came up with:

There was once, during the reign of Emperor Dieter IV, a family named von Streber (placeholder name). They were upjumped Marienburger merchants who tried to buy their way into the nobility. As part of their efforts, they had bought a particular archipelago some distance upriver from Marienburg, and made it into their estate, erecting Schloss von Streber on the main island. Vanity comes before fall though, and when the von Streber family went bankrupt, the estate was confiscated by the Marienburger Bürgerlijke Bank (placeholder name) for unpaid debts. At the time, WAAAGH! Grom had just devastated the Empire and the resulting economic downturn had crashed the real estate market, so the bank decided to hold on to the estate while waiting for the market to recover.

Soon after, the secession of Marienburg happened. In the resulting peace settlement, the land borders between Marienburg and Reikland, and Marienburg and Middenland, were defined, but no border was drawn across the river. The Marienburg Land Registry concluded, from its interpretation of the treaty, that the estate is outside the sovereign territory of Marienburg. For the bank, figuring out what to do about it was put off for the future. Before long, everyone at the bank who knew about the matter had retired or died, and the land deed laid forgotten in a dusty archive. Schloss von Streber lays abandoned and is ruined by neglect.

Fast forward to a bit before present day. Marienburger Bürgerlijke Bank itself goes bankrupt. At this time, Tajir has settled in Marienburg to do business with Eichenfels's money while he's out warring. Tajir buys up the assets of the bank on the cheap from the liquidation. Among them, he rediscovers the land deed to the islands. He sets out to figure the legal status of the islands, and finds out that none of the three states claim them, that all three states' land registries believe they belong to one of the other two. And from there on, this variation joins up with the original idea.

I don't know guys, somehow ideas come smoothly to me when I'm provided a few fixed points to work with. If I'm required to come up with something entirely from scratch though, I'm clueless.

You're right. It's stopped working. Weird. It worked before.



Or has it worked? I can see one of my two attempts now. Can you?

I see nothing. However this is different from the other thread, where I saw the photobucket ‘upgrade account’ picture. Here its just nothing.

It does work, for a while (an hour or so) and then it disappears. Dropbox, not Ph'buck. Weird.
