Yes the front row and 2 from the back are metal once which I think is a bit older?

So another unit of handgunners, might add a couple of more to it in the future, probably by using some Mordheim Ostlanders.

The bases are to be completed, and the little guy is still WIP and not totally sure he will stay on there.

Love your mortar and handgunner unit!

Did the metal mortar carriage have all those nails? Looks really cool. I should have one somewhere, need to dig it out and paint it. :)

This project is getting cooler and cooler as it progresses. What's in the pipeline next?

@zygmund thank you bud! Kind as always.

The old mortar actually had that, but I decided to make them pop a bit, not sure if it works but it looks.. diffetent  ::heretic::

Next project besides adding a bit of characters to the handgunners. I will paint what I like to call "the crows" what I mean with that? You will see :engel:

What's up for you next ?

Thanks bud! I also like it. The old miniatures have something "odd" or funny about them that you really can't put your finger on. I like it !

So been awhile, haent been able to paint lately, work and life came in between but today I got some minatures painted. I have decided to add some cavalry to the army. I ended up buying a bunch of old white wolfs (as well as some teugoen guards) I got them for a resonable price and after some selling of excess miniatures (bought a lot more than I looked for, it was a package deal) I ended up getting like 12 Teutogen guards + Ar Ulrik and around 16 White wolf + Grandmaster almost for free.

Here are the first 5 out of either 14 or 18-20 (With fillers).

I like the old look with the barding painted red, but I dont think it will look good with my army so I just made "red touches".  Basing not complete








This guy is almost falling over and will probably get an arrow in him :icon_twisted:

classic goodness. love it.

It may be too late now but making the banner quite a bit more wavy would look good. Also, make sure you convert up a musician, can't go to war without one!  :dry:

Thanks zyg also like them a lot. They give a nice feel. The army have more and more evolved into classic minis.

Thank you bud! The firm was that way when I bought it, but the paintjob that was done was a challenge to change ....

But I will definitely take your advice on the musician convertion  :::cheers:::

Working on a hero of ostland. Will either carry another sword or a bull shield. Get repainted in the ostland colours. Red white and black feathers. And yes he's strong, carries that sword in one hand like it's a knife

needs more feathers
for the past 2 years, I have sat in my cage, watching the owners put me in small, translucent spheres, and dump small, rock like food, into my cage. But no longer!, I have broken free of the shackles of being a hamster and now!, I paint, as a hamster can not do much more, mostly our small life span

I have made some progress during the final days of November but haven't been able to upload pictures. The unit if kotww is coming forward. All horses are painted and I have primed the grand master and a converted musician. Also I'm waiting for a movement tray of 72 so for now I have it on the huge 102. But that makes me want to do 20...but it's a pain to paint horses..








I will have to fillers in the unit of 14. So 12 horses and 2 fillers. I have 4 more ww  but without horses so I could increase the unit to 18.

I made the unit fillers, very fast so it could have been done way better. But anyways here are my dogs:

 



And who is the owner of the dogs you might ask? Of its this little fellow:


Gonna paint him soon together with the musician.
