The detail is amazing. I could imagine how a unit of the 42nd highlanders would look with your attention to detail.

nooo! tartans are beyond me.  :blush:

Thanks. And, I've never planned it that way. Bob turned his head while the superglue was setting and I found him like this much later. Seemed like I shouldn't break his neck, so now he shall forever guard the regiment's right side.

eagerly awaiting the last 3 of this project!  :::cheers:::

They are in the works. and, this begs the question: is there a hobby life ...beyond Volganof?  :engel:

It is done! The last three models for Volganof.


Stock models. I really like them out of the box. I did put together command models for that distant day when they form up in a big unit with the other three.

So, milestone reached. The Empire army for Volganof is complete. It only took five years. What is next then? Fear not the Road to Volganof does not end here, there is much more mileage to cover.

-   Currently, this army is at ‘minimum Volganof’ which means, ready to play the game tomorrow but, there are units I like to revisit and improve upon. E.g. one of the steam tanks is that tiny 4th edition one. Would want to put in a proper-sized one. There are a few other duds in the army.
-   My spies in Lord Mortkin’s camp tell me he is but ~90 miniatures away from completing his army. So, I might just pitch in a little more
-   And, of course, the big ticket item I mentioned before: the table with a city. Seems like we have a venue now so work can start in earnest.

So upward and onward, as usual, at a steady, slow crawl.

After finishing out the Volganof list, I have let myself get distracted a bit with the weird and wonderful side of the Empire in a wider sense. I am putting together a little DoW army using the Warhammer Armies Project book. Empire units can stand in for a lot in that book of course and I also have the pikemen I posted earlier. But, I’ve also painted up these little Halflings.


And then a unit of Norse Marauders.


I went with a classic Norse banner, these guys are not chaos worshippers after all (at least not openly).

So, stuff is still happening. Stay tuned. And for the last time:

The official Volganof counter:
969/969

TATAAAA!

Those demigryphs and halflings are great. Now that you have completed your army, I would love to see a whole army photo.

Those marauders are fantastic. Nice nod to the raven banner. Back in the day I wanted to do a whole maurauder army with the Norse/not chaos look. Really nice work
