Every Empire army in 3rd needs twenty Helblitzen and here we have twenty two with a leader and champion. They are a mixture of old citadels collected over the years, about a third of them are foundry citadel re-releases. In some cases I have both the original citadel and the new foundry cast. I take all but a thin strip of the foundry cast bases off the new miniatures and use that as a slotta tab. This means even turning them upside down I have to look carefully to tell which are old and which are modern.
Again this is my simple speed painting in action sticking to the yellows and purples so evident in warhammer armies. This time I've even done some of the layers on top to tidy things up a little. Not much more effort and though far from the best of my ability I think this standard will do for BOYL14 as we only have a few weeks left.
I decided these would be the main professional body of the watch as they have good equipment and harness. To that end I painted them more uniformly and made a nice banner depicting the city in purple and yellow.
We have two low level characters.
I just need to get the bases done on these now.
As to whats next in my current speed army frenzy.....
A very effective colour scheme and the flag looks greatReplyDelete
Many thanks Neil for the complement and for posting as I have now discovered your blog. Particular interest payed to your own 3rd ed Empire army!Delete
Dead line of BOYL2014 transform you in a real painting machine :) Nothing can stop you.ReplyDelete
Thanks Nico, what I lack in quality i try to make up for with quantity. Some how you manage both.Delete
This is starting to look like a nice little army. We need to arrange a game for later on in the year so that it encourages me to get my hobgobs done.ReplyDelete
Sure sounds like a plan, your not so far away that one evening wouldn't be out of the question. Hobgobs or Brettonians either would be good.Delete
Excellent looking regiment, I like the way your Empire army is taking shape.ReplyDelete
It's good how you have used the 'attacking' and 'at the ready' models on the sides of the regiment to give the look of unit bristling with halberds.
Thanks GL, I'm in the zone at the moment only downer is I still need to paint silly amounts of castle walls.Delete
The halberds sort of arranged themselves, the attacking and at ready just looked wrong in the center and I've always likes a bristling unit.
Nice pieces and paintworkReplyDelete
Ohoh, stuck in castle Wittgenstein now, whats that ticking sound?Delete
Glad you like the miniatures. Thanks to google translate I also have another set of blogs to follow.
Heh. I think that might be my old Empire Wizard on a horse. I sold it on ebay last year? If it is then it is a small world...ReplyDelete
Could be, honestly not certain when I got him but it was off ebay.Delete
