The colours shine, yet the camp followers have a rugged feeling to them. Outstanding!

This time I even love the sculpts, each one of them.  :laugh:  Are these something super-rare OOP, or do you get them from the Facebook groups or eBay at a decent price, like five £$Ä per mini or the like?

Thanks! No, there is no rare or unreleased model here, you can rather easily find them on eBay. Still it took me some years to get the "turkey girl" at a decent price.

Very, very high standard there. Thumbs up. Absolutely amazing.
On a side note, are the banners custom made from scratch too or ...?
Well thanks. I use plastic banners most of the time: Empire or Dark Elves.

I really like the Reiksguard with the double colors on their armor, nice work overall!

This army is just incredible. It is insane how much better the old sculpts look without RED! everything and goblin green bases. Of course it helps that you are a master painter too. The Reiksguard look really beefy, not all of them are reiksguard sculps? Or are they even older generation foot reiksguard than the last ones?

The front rank guy on the left is one of the MM60/61 Fighters, with a plume swap if I remember correctly - but there are some clever weapon swaps of the two Reiksguard releases and again I think some of the plumes have been 'standardised'. 
Great unit.   :eusa_clap:

Hi folks,
You're right, the front guy on the left is a MM60 Fighter. The other 9 are Marauder Miniatures MM65 Reiksguard references, slightly converted, but plumes untouched.

I like the hammer swap for halberd one. Very clever.

I hate people who don't paint their armies, hate them with all my guts. Beats me how they value other things over painting, like eating or brushing teeth.

Incredible!
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!

Thanks!
By the way, Victor, I like your icon or logo. I might borrow it for the standard bearer of the Reiskguard unit :)

Thanks! The basecoat is a mix of white and Vallejo Extra Opaque Brown, hightlighted with VMC Pale Sand, VGC Bonewhite or VMC Ivory.
