Very nice! I have got to get me one of those some time.

Nice! He seems to have a blueish sheen or is that simply the photgraphy?

That looks great - I like the colour.

Is that an assault cannon? Which one?

I like it too, will that be a helblaster model?

Be prepared for anything when you field one of them. So far i have have had 3 tirades of abuse, one punch and the finger. I'm not sure whether it was a play-punch or not though...

I think that is the dreadnought assualt cannon.

Hehe, thanks all very much. Yes that is a conversion using a Dreadnought assault cannon (seems like a small hellblaster to me)  :-D  I also added bits from a Bretonnian Knight's helm. Can any of the mods please tell me if my army can possibly be included in the gallery? I know they may not be superbly painted but I taught they may be ok for putting in the gallery  :oops: . These are some more pics of my warrior priest (i don't like the fire painting though), my elector on griffon (which I seldom use) and my battle standard. I still have more pics to post though!

Yup, it definately looks great. The scheme really fits well to the model.

I think that steam tank looks really, really good! :-D  It makes me want to build mine and paint it. I really like the blue green patina.

What does the mounted conversion consist of? Where did you get the horse? How did you do the banner? I like that conversion, assuming it is a conversion, quite a bit.

Once again, the steam tank looks awesome!

I love the hammer on the shield. :clap:

Such a simple yet novel idea.

Atchman seems to mainly do the gallery these days - email him and give him the links, and he will decide if they are worthy.

However we have had some problems with bandwidth recently, so it may have to wait until the site upgrade.

Ok guys, I am having one of my many sleepless nights, so I tought that I should post another couple of pics. Here are my reiksguard (which I use as greatswords, although I have to put a kind of buckler on each of them instead of their shields/ but alas I haven't any), my swordsmen which are fairly basic and my flagellants (which I still have to finish ie:their books, scrolls and eyes and redo the fire because I can't really render it well enough). Together with these there are pics of my elector on horse, knights, Valten and my hero on foot. The horses of the elector and the battle standard are converted from empire, highelf and brettonian horses in order to make the nobles look unique when compared to the troops and knights. I found the standards on the internet, but they had different colors so I had to painstakingly redo all the colors and shades which, considering the fact that I am as computer literate as an ork mekboy, wasn't easy. Finally I took a pic of a part of my Sigmarite and Ulric armies.

Great models. I like the elf/bret/empire horse mix It does make the characters stand out. I also like the Reiksguard as well, I would love a unit in my army even if I only used them as swordsmen... they are just so cool.

Hmm. I really must finish painting my army.

I'll put them in the gallery, but I don't want to download them all individually.  Perhaps you can email them to me a little at a time.

Nicely done with the Stank, it'll go nicely with that impressive army you've got there.

Thanks guys for your gracious words!

@ Atchman: Do you think it is possible to post three links at a time or else should I post more or fewer due to space on the e-mail? I really don't understand much of computer technology  :oops:

@ Marcus Leitdorf: the mounted conversion consists of:

Old knight of the blazing sun torso & legs (for a baroque looking armour)
Knight of the white wolf head
High elf horse
Bretonnian horse head
Shield and sheated sword from the swordsmen set

I hope this helps  :wink:

@ Atchman: Thanks, I will post you the pics bit by bit some time this or next week  :o
