Hello people! I decided to make an Empire Army. Thats for 2 main reasons! The first one is that I ALWAYS loved Empire...and I mean ALWAYS, in my whole Wargaming career I loved the feeling of the Empire army and now with the new Army book out I absolutely have no excuses for not creating one! The second main reason is that I definately want a new Warhammer army. I currently play with a forest spirit army (you can find the list here (http://cadaver.122mb.com/wood_list.html)) and I'm COMPLETELY bored :( .

Anywayz I'm planning to post updates here but most importantly I want to get feedback and some support to go on cause I tend to be lazy from time to time...:p

So, what do I have up to now...

I begin with this

A good friend of mine also provided me with his Empire army which he never got into finishing (he is also one of the main reasons for my Empire love affair). Thats what I got from him...

Thanx Arhallien. The mage is one of my favourites so far, but I dont really like the painting done by Eavy metal. The flames are too orange, if you know what I mean! Anyway hope to get to him soon!

I thought he ment "Metal Hammer" :evilgrin:.

Seriously, I can't wait to see your work.
Have you already chosen a province/colour scheme?

Edit: I like the sorceror as well. this (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=005&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=150079301910&rd=1&rd=1) paint scheme is so much better!

For the paint sceme I will surely have some handgunners in the Nuln colors (Its to match the cannons:evilgrin: )...I'll continue with some knights of the Blazing Sun and then the Steam Tank..the old one. I'll probably have a variety of provinces to try all the paint scemes...

As for the sorcerer...yeah, thats exactly what I'm talking about.:D

UPDATES...

I prepared my first 20 handgunners, primed them and finished the first 5 of them. Nothin fancy, just my 5 first Nuln handgunners, tabletop quality...:rolleyes: but its a start

As you can see they are the old models. I decided to make crossbowmen out of the new plastics cause I had those models from my fella I told you previously... cannot be compared with the excellent new ones but theyll do the trick in the battlefield! :D

Here is a primed group photo

Got some more work done today... I'm preparing my Artillery pieces which will all feature scenic bases. I was thinking of doing something like a unified entrenched theme with some sort of fortifications and removable crew.

Those finished models look really good! I am also starting an empire -army soon, so I will watch this as an inspiration for my own to-be project log.

Keep on painting!

Ok, people...I finally managed to make some progress and this is the result! As I have already told, I was planning to make scenic bases in all of my artillery pieces! Got 2 Cannons and 2 Mortars more to finish but I am trying to make first of all only the pieces to make a playable army list. Here are some pics on my progress so far...

As you can see I used some spare bits from the Brettonian men at arms sprue...I'll try to post a closeup from the snail that crawls up in the pickes...

I think the gravel you're using for artillery bases is way too coarse. Other than that, they're looking good.

Cad@veR
22-01-2007, 14:02
Its standard GW gravel...maybe the closeups are kinda magnifying the whole thing! I think when it is painted you'll get the idea better.
