Excellent!

Nicely done, fellow Andrew.

I particularly love the checks. It's so old school, but it in a good way. That's really how I remember Warhammer artwork around the time I became interested in the hobby.
No, I'm sending it to people I reckon I can trust. Or, at least, people I think I can murder should it become neccesary.

Fantastic work. I especially love the steam tank - it looks like a proper piece of bonkers machinery. When I get back to painting Empire I'll be inspired by stealing some ideas from it.  :eusa_clap:

Really nice army!  :::cheers:::

Looking at the light wizard, combustion occurs at the base of the flames though, where the wood is actively burning. The tips are the 'coldest' parts of the flames, which means that flames are bright at the bottom and darker at the top.

Thanks for all the compliments!

I'll have to call it magic backwards fire until I fix it.

Well, you can always say: "It's Warhammer Fantasy."  :biggriin:

But I like 'magic backwards fire' even better (as long as it doesn't hit your own army).  :icon_wink:

Well done!

Indeed! Bruckner's beard is fantastic. As is the scaring\blood WPoS
I choose too keep "Old Warhammer" alive with my blood sweat and tears.

It's bad that warhammer might die but it would be a tragedy if it stays dead!

Added new wizard to the front page.

I converted this using putty on the body and a high elf head to make a female wizard.

Excellent army, but first time I've seen a boob shot on a Warhammer miniature.

Did you convert her hands, or does she have Man Hands?   :::cheers:::

Lol, no I did not change her hands. I did paint some fingernails on them but that's it.

Perhaps it's better to describe her as a "post-op" female wizard.
