Please people, you're embarassing yourselves - feast your eyes on this!



Yes, I too am amazed that I managed to fit it all into one shot. Humble beginnings, aye?

By Sigmar, give me your painting skills now!!! xD Damn those are nice looking.

You want overpowered cheap infantry with hatred? Look no further than Dark Elves, jackass. Empire is far from OP. But if it's strengths are utilized properly to counter the enemies strengths then that's more you being a smart player than them.  If they cannot counter you, thats because they don't know how to play their army Vs Empire.

Heroic killing blow makes no sense for Schwartzhelm as he's not known to fight giant monsters. He's a slayer of men.

I  know this is 2 months old. But we have Ludwig Schwartzhelm. He has killing blow.

He also is basicly what your character is meant to be. He executes or gets counts and lords in line. So he sort of makes your character redundant :3

There could be several reasons:

1) People know a new book (and new models) is coming out and don't want to buy units that may be 'nerfed' soon.

2) It's considered an overpowered army by many atm, while there are always people who are attracted to this they may be hodling off because of point 1. Other people would like to have opponents to play against.

3) Morslieb in in the third quarter, jinxing the sale of Empire minis.

Only want to ask a question regarding point "2". Why do they think its overpowered? The Empires army is fairly bland. It's good at many things but basicly excels at nothing.

Its really good at blowing away large hordes and big monsters via its artillery.   Empire artillery (mortar mostly) is very undercosted.   Add in the undercosted war altar, cheap good hordes and you understand

Well honestly,  It's hardly undercosted. It's quite a gamble to use any of the Empires artillery what with the spontaneous self-explosions that can happen to them as well as their inaccuracy. People honestly need to adapt their tactics to the foe they are fighting instead of calling teams overpowered. Then by their logic an Iron Blaster for example should cost 500+ points. Because it's a chariot+siege weapon of deadly doom and has strength 10 grapeshot. The imperial cannons are vulnerable and easy to take out if you know what yer doin. Especially if you're a mobile army. I hope they don't balance the game out too much. Every team should be overpowered in their own things. If everything is balanced you might as well just have 1 team available for play as it'd be so incredibly bland :P

If they manage to nerf Empire it'll be neigh unplayable versus many other teams. They're just gonna turn us into hardcore powder monkey's. Oh? We don't get any good shit? Then im gonna field as many cannons and gunners as possible and just cheese my way to victory.

This is what I'm worried about.  I've said it before, I like the Empire's 'feel' with lots of troops rank upon rank.  Solid lines of infantry supported by calvary, gun powder and faith.  If it turns into a shooty only army, I'll be  putting my army up on ebay.   :?

Actually I would not be surprised if both the canon and mortar will be either nerfed or become more expensive. The same goes for the steam tank. Maybe they will make a mistake with the hellblaster and make it useful again.

If they increase their cost they should also increase the cost for the ogres Iron Blaster. I doubt they will, and if they do im gonna use 7th ed points for them. Still, I hope they won't fuck Empire over. But something tells me they will considering how dumbed down the most recent 8th eds have been. "Streamlined" is an excuse lazy and incompetent people use to cover up the fact that they are dumbing down something.

If it turns into that im just gonna disregard 8th completley. I just started my goddamn army and if they eff it over, im going to be less then happy about it. Becuase the way its played now is what I like about it.

Dunno about you guys but I use alot of detachments to decent effect. If you want to route enemy units no biggy, get detachments as it rapes their rank bonuses. 5 Militia = 10 attacks too :3

12
Are there any other famous troops/regiments from Nordland? Those two kind of feel unimaginative and lackluster.

I know im a bit late on this thread but you  can easily have ogres in an imperial army as ogres are mercenaries. There is also an Imperial Ogre Maneater model on games workshop. So having them in your army shouldn't be a problem nor is it against the lore either.

Empire Army Book 8th Edition / Re: 5 man detachments worth it?
« on: March 01, 2012, 01:31:26 PM »
Small detachments aka "The Heroic Five" are always handy. They're likely to die, but the way they can redirect and control the enemy troops giving you the initiative in their charges is priceless. They cost nothing to lose and considering how much damage you can do to the enemy with a detachment easily overweighs their loss. :happy:

The pop up message about a new PM is 'off' by default, so he may not have realised.

Wouldn't mind it either way. If someone wants to keep stuff for themselves it's not my place to judge. Didn't mean it as a "negative". Even though since it's text on the web I guess that didn't come through.

Your English is fine mate...also if you could be so nice to tell us what colours you used in the process


I try to guess it

Skull white spray to prime the models

Enchanted blue

Some blue wash maybe asurmen

ice blue on the highlights

?

Ive PM'ed him before curious about what yellow's he's been using and how to apply them. No reply ofcourse so I don't think that he's into sharing his techniques that much.

All over it.


I must say I understand the remarks, but disagree. But that's largely because IRL there is a lot more depth in the model than tese pics show.

Camera flashes tend to illuminate the darkened areas where one has used the wash too.

Nice stuff though! :3 Remember, Iron Blaster does NOT have stand and shoot as a charge reaction ^^

I like the dirty yellow, looks good on them.

thanks much, i guess i got soooooo used to having a dirty and grit look for my Vampire counts, that i couldnt shake the habbit of adding a lil bit of dirt. Its funny, its hard to tell in the pic, but if you look closely, the guy lighting the cannon was the first test model for the scheme and i added straight yellow "highlights" after the wash to brighten it up...and i didnt like it.

And how often is an army spotless and neat? ^^ Not very often. In the end everyone is dirt brown with patches of colour left ;) So I think it's a nice yellow. On my state troops (Nordland) ive been experimenting with a similar yellow (Ilyanden Darksun and Gryphonne Sepia). And sometimes i use golden yellow to highlight to see how it turns out. And tbh, the darker one looks better. (Ive only painted 10 statetroops, 2 greatswords and a captain so far).

Nordland would then be Frisia/Saxony/Mecklenburg - towards the coast.

Scandinavia is Norsca, which used to be the homeland of fierce independent mercenaries but is now totally conquered and enslaved by Chaos. From interesting neutrals, the population has turned into uniformly boring baddies.


-Z

Edit: corrected typos.

I'd like to add that Nordland is heavily influenced by Sweden as well, given that their provincial colours are blue and yellow and that they are skilled seafarers. Even though they aren't in Norsca. They seem to be heavily influenced of a more modern Sweden while Norsca is basicly "old Scandinavia".

Hmm, I'll try ... it's a good decade or so since I chanted said prayer:

"Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed be the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of god, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen." (x10)

How did I do?

Find this heretical dog! He's worshipping warpspawn! By Sigmar his head shall be on a pike by dawn!

OT: From what little I know me and 2 friends have recently started playing WFB (We live in Swe) but im unsure of the WFB playerbase size in our locale. And a third friend will be starting as well as soon as he has the money.

Seeing this I realized ive been painting my nordland troops wrong.... Yay! :D Or well to be precise its the golden yellow ive used wrong
So my guys got this cartoony yellow. Looks like ive got some repainting to do ;) (I just started(Like just recently. Painted my first things ever recently so im sort of learning by doing) and all i got is like 10 state troops and 2 greatswords(given to me by a friend. And as soon as the next batch of money rolls in im getting a battallion box). Problem is ive overused the golden yellow so the ilyanden yellow is only in the crevaces... Note to self Golden yellow is for highlighting.

Ugrim could you PM me a short "How to paint the yellow bits" tutorial? Cuz i dont want to fudge anything more up :P
