Looking forward to that Greatsword unit!


Where are the wall pieces from?

That's the thing, bought them so long ago so I can't remember  :eusa_wall:

Thanks! I have also decided on that :)

Great stuff - love the greatswords idea.

On the subject of the shields, the square top on does tie in with the shape of the bulls head, - I mean in a sense of triangle shape with the 'point/chin' at the bottom so there is a certain symmetry.

You put it into words, the thing I really couldn't figure out what i didnt like about the round one. Square it is



Boring to paint 12 shields indeed.

 So I painted the spearmen that I have. Note to self is to line them up before you paint and base them... :eusa_wall: I'm a few spearmen short. Have two extra painted so 4 more will make it 6x4(with fillers) which would be ok for now.

So I give you spearmen of ostland

So i painted a cannon + crew, but as you might have realized I had to make something a bit more dynamic. Hope you like it

I love your theme and paintwork, especially on the cannons. Hope to see some Greatswords soon, they are one of my favourite Empire models and your idea for them sounds great and fluffy.

Thank you Castozor! I'm trying to get a dynamic army. I will try to get the greatswords painted soon :blush: Just going to paint some OOP hangunners first, they are primed and ready!

So made another little progress, 10 out of 14 handgunners painted. I will probably end up doing a little bit of wall-theme for these as well one finished.

Really like the old sculpts, the metal feels nice to paint  :icon_wink:

Enjoy:







And a future little project, a really weird unit of random characters from the town, tired of the siege. Going to do some special things to them.

Such a nice collection of figures!

Yes I agree, also nice to just mix in some crazy mordheim miniatures. However they are quite expensive some time  :icon_frown:

nicely done. The first picture of the ogre had me a little worried about you going down the Shrek path. But, all is good. Keep it coming!

Hehe I know, first picture was a bit screwed. I  tried making the picture  better but ended up making it more green ..

These resin minis are great. Which company made these handgunners?

^ I think those gunners are from the late 90's. They came with one of the starter sets from about '99-'00 [I think]

Aren't there some metals in there too?  Either way, the plastic hand gunners were also sold on sprues with spearsmen in a small box as well as the starter kit for 6th edition (Empire vs. Orcs).
