Niiiiiiiiiiiiice!

I think the horses of your normal knights look better than the GM one, the barding is a bit too drybrushed for my taste. Great job washing the horse legs!

The big friend of the Baron, next to the rifleman. He's wonderful! What model is that? Is it still available?

The whole unit looks good, though it's a bit weird to see them all together - not really a unifying scheme/theme or something =P.

Lol. It's a scratchbuild. The legs are from cannon crewman, head of a chaos marauder, the collar, "pants zip" and the uniform are sculpted.

When you think about, there really aren't enough warhammer regiments featuring Elvis, Mr T, The Black Knight, Black Adder, and  Baron von Munchausen. 

If I may make a small suggestion?  Take out the brazier, and convert a miniature of Michael Knight/David Hasselhoff.  He's pure 80's cheese, and Germans looooooove David Hasslehof.

Hahaha nice and hilarious  :icon_lol: I picked out a few as well.  That highlander, who I don't recognize, next to Elvis is awesome. How did you do that sash and brooch he has on, and the sword handle? Fantastic work  :eusa_clap:

Brooch is GS, kilt GS , pouch on the kilt is from the militia pants and the sword handle is from artilery "cleaning stick".

I quite like that idea. Very creative. I also especially like Wallace and the Warrior Bard.
Isn't Marienburg in Nordland?
Yeh, but they seceded. It's like saying Altdorf is in Reikland.

How dare you! Nordland? Those slack-jawed half-wits? Nothing but sniveling dogs and usurpers. I'll have you know that we Endals were a cornerstone of the Empire for many long years, we formed the province of Westerland, a grander province by far then Nordland, the whole of which cannot amount to the splendor of the city of gold.

Gustavus is friend of Baron Munchausen (the guy in the middle of the 1 row) .In the movie he has an ability to inhale air and exhale a powerful huracane/tornado/wind.
