I liked how the stripes were done on Marco's sleeves, and with black for the inner folds of the shirts. :icon_cool:

Everything is this army is nice, I like the United theme, and how you have tied the bases together so they look like they're from the same army.

However, with the Stirlanders, what makes them Morr followers? And why does the Champion where tiger skin?

I have no problems with it, they look cool, but I was just wandering?

So my Stirlanders pray to Morr due to battles againts the living dead. They want him to take them back to the underworld. The captain has a tiger cape beacause he is a veteran who fought in Kislev or he has lot of money.  :happy:

Nice conversions on the ogres.  Especially like the guy with the monocle.  Very nice idea!

And again a couple of great looking models. IMO the best thing is the blending on the orb, just brilliantly done.

Middenheim halberdiers.No freehand on the banner, because there were painted earlier than swordsmen or spearmen. They are a bit dusted :Ohmy:

Nice models! Good use of the brettoninan decals. But why do you have halberdiers with a command group? Detachments can't have command groups?  :icon_confused:

They aren't a detachment. 95% of people use them as detachment, but they can be a parent unit.

I was being sarcastic and trying to imply that I did not understand why you would field halberdiers as a parent.

you used the wrong smiley, the frustrated one you used made it look like you were actually serious, you should have used the winking one.

oh yeah! very nice models Chris! :happy:

I use halbadiers as parent units and swords as detachments, I think that they are a neat and nifty unit, screw the stats, they will eventually swing back the other way, aren't we on the 7th version of rules and who know how many faq variations, I will continue to build whatever I like and if someone doesnt like them I will use they count as...greatswords?  steveb
