First post, long time lurker. Since my Beastmen collection is getting complete and because I needed a change of style in order to keep the interest up I decided it was time to start a more down-to-earth army. I wanted a human army that could put up a fight with only infantry, cavalry and possibly some ballistics. And maybe a cannon or two….and a Helblaster…..and inzane Priests with magical powers.
Anyway, after much consideration the choice fell upon The Empire. And what luck, after just a few months a shiny new book appeared!
Since it was going to be an Empire army I also decided that it would be the Warhammer Fantasy Black Company equivalent (with cannons and inzane priest of course). If you don’t know the Black Company I’m sure someone has written a Wiki article about (or read the books, they’re great).
This post will include my feeble efforts to bring the Black Company (Warhammer equivalentTM) to life.
Below is the first mini’s and the plan is to update this post with more later.
This is the first Spearmen, finished except the base. They are Perry minis from the Mercenaries set.

So that’s it for now, comments are welcome.
