Wow Im really liking this post,  the first picture in the line-up sets the tone. When I saw the size of the army I wrongly assumed anybody with an army this obnoxiously huge must be an American, then I checked Paris, France and I was even more amazed  :lol: Great army, how long has it been in the making? The veteran Handgunners are my favorite.

Alex-bbr, bbr= Bieber like Justin? Just wondering.

All in all cool army.

Haha, some of the best painted and largest armies shown in the Internet are painted & owned by Frenchmen. There sure is dedication and skill there. I guess there's a language barrier, though, which cuts a portion of communication.

Hi Doc J and thanks for you message, really motivating. Haha no, i'm not american indeed! I starded the Hobby in 2001, but I started to really build this army only in 2008. So approximatly 8 years for this result. But I have an O&G army too, same size.  :-D

Haha, I don't know if we have the largest and best painted army, I guess we can find large and fine painted army in all country. Personnaly, the best empire army painted that I never seen were here, on this forum, and give me a lot of inspiration, so you see. :) But I guess in France, yeah, we maybe have a solid "tradition" of Historical wargaming, like Napoleonic War (of course) or something like that.

But you know, my painting is not a hight level too. My painting technique are really simple. I'm just fast to paint large army, but I can't spend too much time on one single model.

If you want to learn french  :icon_mrgreen:, I share to you my original post on the french warhammer forum. There is much much more pictures, fluff and illustration for each unit of my army : http://www.warhammer-forum.com/index.php?showtopic=229682

For the next time, be ready to see more oldschool models!

Great battlefield army, such bold colours! My favourite unit is probably the axe-wielding woodsmen, very fluffy indeed. :eusa_clap:

I don't have any Hochland Crossbowmen, because I never got any metal models.
Love them!
