Fantastic painting! These are some of the best looking Empire units I have ever seen (and I'm not even that fond of many of these old models).

I'm curious - how long does it take you to paint 1 miniature? And have you written any painting guides/tutorials by any chance?

Thank you for sharing!  :::cheers:::

I think I spend a few hours on each model, maybe 4 for a simple one. I wrote a lot of tutorials with my friend Haekel on this website: http://haekel.free.fr/. But it takes a lot of time, and I gave up when I started my first army of dwarfs.

Damn, that NMM work is of so high quality that it took me quite a while to notice that it is, in fact, NMM. First time that happened to me.
The only good thing about 7th ed heads is that they look particularly inbred and superstitious which is perfect for Stirlanders

I'm not normally a big fan of the Marauder sculpts, too far before my time for nostalgia, but then I'd never seen them painted like this before. Your painting style is just perfect for these, making the odd and sometimes slightly comical proportions seem intentional, like the lovely illustrations on the covers of the older Discworld novels. Plus I love that you put so much thought into the backstory of the units, the guild militia is amazing.

Truly special.

Thanks again. Last details on the (almost) completed units: the City Watch (actually the Guild of Lamplighters and Watchmen). So far, the regiment gathers elements from two separate districts: Mórrsfeld and Söllhafen. Mórrsfeld is the district where the prison of St Quintus stands: excellent opportunity to paint an executioner (the ogre), the warden (the guy holding keys), a jailer and the chief interrogator, plus a few guards.




As you can see below, I've changed my mind with the standard bearer: on the left, the initial one (painted before the completion of the second district), on the right, the final one (painted with the same colors as Söllhafen's standard):


Speaking of Söllhafen:

And the crossbowmen (note that the guy in the center of the 1st picture is an unreleased Marauder model):

Yes, the hounds are also Marauder Miniatures: they were associated with the Dark Elf beast masters MM73 .

These are all fantastic full stop it is funny how the unreleased models are often the ones that catch your eye as being really good.

Beautiful work! I love the halflings and you inspire me to paint mine to a better standard.
I may disagree with what you say but I respect your right to be punished for it.

Well, thank you all! For the colours, I use Vallejo references mainly, but also a few Army Painters, Andrea and P3.

Unreleased marauder minis ! With slottas removed
I woke up a few years ago and realised that life is a matrix like simulation. Everyone you ever meet ages and rots, your wife gets old, your kids leave... Only miniatures remain , lasting centuries.. millenia. What we paint now will echo in eternity!

Well, I've succeeded in keeping the slotta for the legionary, but unfortunately not for the crossbowman. As I do not plan to sell them, I don't think it's a big deal in the end :p

Bought them on eBay two years ago I believe. From a guy who also sold the ultra rare Nuln spearman and the Guard Captain... I still have two unreleased Marauder models to paint.
