Soldiers of the rebellion
« on: August 15, 2013, 09:37:21 AM »
I have a fluff thing going on in "The Imperial Office" section, where I post my stories and such.

I never really finished the minis to go with the stories until now, so I thought I would share the result with you in here.




Ulrich von Ottenheim
Commander Black Griffon mercenary company
Komtur Templar Knights of Taal




Raymond Charzat and Lucien Saglier




Crugeon Hawklight
(One of many wizards in the rebellion, but he is no Merlin...if you know what I mean...a bad, bad man.)





Black Griffon mercenary knights
(In fact Von Ottenheims retainers...blood of my blood kind of thing..)





Ragnar, Chieftain of the Bear Clan
(Herald of the High King that now sits on the Winter Throne.)

I apologize for the somewhat bad/fuzzt quality on some of the Pictures. I hope you get the idea anyway.   :biggriin:

As always, love the site and the inspiration I get from watching all you guys and your conversions and paintjobs.

Keep it up   :::cheers:::

Thank you.

He comes from The Dark Heaven Legends line.

Think he is called a viking chieftain there too.

Looks pretty good. I have to wander off and read some fluff now to go together with the models.

First Swords of the Black Griffon mercenary company








Manfred von Ottenheim commanding...(Hes the guy in laurels.) 









Painted these a long time ago. Just cleaned them up and gave them a base now.

Undertaken the project to actually paint and base my models....instead of buying more and more that I never finish.  :eusa_wall:

Wow, the last model of the first post.
That's what I wanted greatswords to be, instead of the sissies we got.

Some more old ones with bases and a touchup.





Templar Knights of Taal and Frateres Panthera





Templar Knights of Taal




Frateres Panthera




Command and banners

(I thought of changing the banners for new ones, but they have had them for so long that it felt wrong somehow  lol)




Ordensmarschall Valacchia
(I still regret changing out his warhammer...*sigh*  :eusa_wall: )




Hochmeister Corvus Starkenberg

Feels good to finish them finally. I keep buying more and more minis...but sadly lack the time to paint and base.

Thats it for now,  more to come, have a good one gents and ladies.

Threadomancy extraordinaire... I seldom have time to paint anymore.

Finished my last 8 Altdorf guard halberdiers.

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.

Great banners! Love the faded look. Are these paper print-outs and then colored in? or are you that good at freehand?

Sorry Naitsabes, I forgot to answer you.  :blush:  I dont have any templates as such to share. I just make them up as I go along. The Altdorf one for ex. is stolen straight from "Uniforms and Heraldry of the Empire"......

So this guy was supposed to be my entry for "Deadcember"....the reason being he is bringing death to the shores of Bretonnia as we speak...but holiday season got in the way...so he will go here instead.
