Finally made some banners for my Winged Lancers so I could count them as finished:

That's some great painting all the Kislev cavalry, and your mad batch painting all the horse's. The dragon is stunning, wish I'd thought of that before putting my Ice Queen on a Bear. Kind of wish we had made a Kislev army instead of Middenheim for storm of chaos.

Thanks  :::cheers:::

It is indeed the Minas Tirith banner on one of the units, the tree representing Taal, God of nature and the wild.
The other banner is a slightly converted empire banner, with main dedication to Ursun.

Awesome. I love limbered artillery, for some reason. Never seen it combined with organ guns.

Great stuff! You've used Bronzino's Galloping Guns as the base, right? The Organs are dwarven or self-made?

Thanks  :happy:

The carriage and crew are Bronzino´s, the crew have gotten some greenstuff furry hats and Kislev-y mustaches, while the cannons are indeed the old dwarven organ gun, with the most dwarfy parts left off.

Great stuff, again.

The bears are awesome. Agree the sculpt is one of the best out there. (There are surprisingly many, actually.) Why are they left handed?

The Urugan cannons seem to advance at great speed. I've always wondered if the crew shouldn't sit on the limbers, in order to keep the pace.

Great cannons, that is a very tasteful conversion. Now...what's an 'urugan' again?

And, good job on 'de-cloning' the bears. That's a nice variety of poses now. I do wonder if the riders aren't a little out of scale, aren't they mountains of men next to the other kislevites?

Its apparently the desciption of the sound it makes when it fires  :biggriin:
There is a little fluff text in the blog posts that give some more info on the two units.

The Bear riders are beefy, but not so much so that they are out of scale. They should be the biggest guys in the army, and they are clad in heavy plate which beefs them up a bit more.

Got a bit side-tracked from my Kislev project because of the Gorechosen box arriving at my door. I painted up Vexnar the Reaper to test my scheme for the Gorechosen fighters. These guys are really great, IMO, the Gorechosen game is GW´s best production in a long time   :closed-eyes:
