Beautiful collection, the steam tanks are magnificent but also the first GW model I made where I wished it was plastic. And I only ever built one, and a standard one at that!

Found some inspiration this weekend and started my luminark and hurricanum. I got them roughed out. Im not going to use horses on the luminark, instead Im going to use four acolytes of light surrounding it. The celestrial hurricanum will be towed by horses. Im undecided on the traditional empire barded horses or the old bretonnian horses.

I would go for those classic bretonnian horses, they seem more fit for pulling a wagon.

These look great. I think the caprisoned horses would look more fancy than the barded ones, which is in keeping with wizards.

 I have to agree with with you guys, so I used the bretonnian horses. I finished the celestial hurricanum.  All the bits, familiars and wizard are still removable. The luminark has all the rivets put on but I dont have wheels for it yet. The original plan called for using standard chariot wheels but they looked tiny on it when I assembled it. I found some 30mm diameter Napoleonic artillery wheels which resembles the metal steam tank wheels I am using on the hurricanum. So it will have to wait till they arrive to finish it.

Here's a big and small update. I finally figured out what I wanted to make the crew out of for the Tzar Cannon.  Also made a base for my hot pot.

I like it, though with a small side helping of "OMG he converted those ogres"!

The ogre crew look amazing!  :-o

(I hope you got the idea for the Tsar Cannon from the dwarfen 'Granite Breaker' in my Tilean campaign!?!  :laugh:)

At first I was going to use a different group of old marauder orges but they were going to require extensive green stuffing. Then I recently  picked up and ebay listing  for orcs that had a couple of these landsknecht ogres in it. Thats when I realized I have over 30 of these guys and it wouldn't be so bad to chop a few of them. :icon_biggrin:

Wow, what an amazing campaign. I dont know how I missed that. Ill  definitely enjoy reading that over next couple of days. If you dont mind me asking, what model did you use for the Granite Breaker?  It is a really great looking model.  A few years back boreas nl had a thread where he built a huge cannon called the crown jewel. This got me looking into siege cannon  when I stumbled upon a Wikipedia article on the Tzar Cannon.  I looked for a long time trying to find a model for this cannon. Finally found this on ebay from a Russian seller. Its cast iron, had a date on the base from the 70's. Whats really neat about it is all the parts are threaded together.

My intentions when I started this was to have all the options for the 5th ed empire book.  Here are my non human allies for this army, halflings, ogres and dwarves. These guys will "eventually" be painted in wissenland colours and kept separate from my halfling and dwarf armies.

It's from Scotia Grendel, 20021 - Dwarf Heavy Cannon

Here's a collated post about painting it, and modelling the 'accessories' ...
