Love the banner!

The spearmen are very chunky models. Where are they from?

She's from a group of RNestudio women villagers I printed up and test painted using Army Builder speed paints.  While I enjoy the results of the speedpaints and they are fun to use, its just not quite my style.  They are very lovely miniatures though imo.

A few months back I uploaded a video trying to showcase my Empire army.  Its a little cringy but it was a good learning experience with the camera.
The sudden spark in feedback on video is inspiring, I'll have to try some more.

Posted on Youtube and Rumble. As much as I'd prefer to make Rumble my go-to video upload source, their video quatlity is awful.  Youtube is closer to actual high def.

It's a good video. Nice 'stills' of and story for each unit, and good info on the models.

Love you mentioned the forum and the steam tank you got from here.

The Sorceress could easily be turned into Blacker II's Liz the 1st

I think I got the Dwarves from Oldschoolminiatures https://www.oldschoolminiatures.co.uk/old-school-miniatures

The Wizard is from Wargames foundry and the sorceress is 3d print from Titan Forge (Scarlet Marquis)

Interesting developments coming from the "The Old World Almanack" 
https://www.warhammer-community.com/2023/12/18/old-world-almanack-mustering-the-grand-army-of-bretonnia/

"The Grand Army is not the only way to select a force, however. Each faction will gradually gain access to Armies of Infamy, which provide often wildly different ways to muster a force. As a Bretonnian Lord, you might wish to enter exile especially as it means you can then take forbidden Border Princes Bombards into battle, while those who really just enjoy Knights and more Knights may prefer an Errantry Crusade."

Sound like my Bretonnian L'Ordonnance is back on the table.

Continuing progress on my Undead armies. Hope to finish them by the end of 2024 (a new years resolution I guess).

The undead dragon. A quick paint job for this Reaper Bones miniature.
