Loving the blue. Really bright and vibrant. Looks especially great on the artillery. Nice to see them not painted as brown wood for a change.

More please.

WOW - looking really nice  :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap:. Looks like production after the assembly line principle and you are pretty productive. Especially the blue is well done and representing the Nordland scheme well. How did you create those puffy sleaves on the halbards? Did you greenstuff it. Keep going - can't wait to see more...

Great stuff I like the overall look of the guys. Care for some step by step painting guides on one of your soldier?

Really nicely painted, and I'm really jealous how you can paint that many miniatures at a time. I get bored when painting five similar minis at a time. Also really nice idea with the knight helmets, looking really good. Looking forward seeing more.

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

Impressive army, looks very nice. i'd love to see the whole army when it's finished. Did you make the wheels on the mortars yourself? Any how-to on that, because I really like them.

Very impressive mass painting you have there, I also like the csubtle conversions you've used.
