Hey, Iíve saw many great miniatures in this forum. Now I will show you some of my army.
Iím a beginner of WFB and choose Empire as my first army. There are few players in my city, so I have to learn how to paint my miniatures from internet. Now Iíve finished more than 500 points Altdorf army. I think their painting is unskilled. All comments are welcome.

This is my first mount one, a captain.

There are three Reiksguard Knights.

There is my free company unit. That tall pirate-like girl is made of putty.

Here comes my new female wizard. She belongs to Celestial College. I use the blue-like colors and some patterns of astronomy. Wish you like it.

Unfinished handgunners. I also use blue and red as Altodlf army, but the color is lighter than other units.

My friend give me some his 6th handgunners and spearmen. Well, there are something remain after I assemble 10 7th handgunners and 20 7th swordsmen. So I convert them with new weapons and diverse heads.
14 new crossbowmen.

Near a signpost to Altdorf, this poor farmer was killed by elves’ arrows. His blood flew into a puddle formed by giant’s foot, and a crow prepared to taste the fresh meat.

I wish I was that 'unskilled'! Anyway, looking good! I like the pirate woman. The female wizard seems to have her vision obscured though. The mini-diorama is nice. Is it just for fun or are you going to use it as terrain or a marker of some sort?

These models are great! Really, really good! This looks like a wonderful army - the pirate girl is particularly fine. She's very characterful indeed.

Excelant. I think that you dont give enough credit to yourself, much better then what I could ever paint.

I really like your sculpts, and your painting is fine imo :)

I agree with the comment about the wizard, but its a minor thing.

I have to say, those sculpts are kickass, especially the wizard.

Thanks for your appreciate.
This is my mounted WP. He was very brave in his youth, but more concerned with politics than the holy mission when he became old. So the army he led lost the battle yesterday.

That pirate girl is awsome. As an unmature 29 year old I am proud to say that I like the boobies best!

What I dislike are the mold lines. Lots of them. Please clean them on the unpainted models.

This is shaping up to be a very characterful army. Can I ask whereabouts in China you are and whether you know many other players?

I love them!

Very characterful and fun. Don't belittle your skills either, your painting is great and better than the vast majority of painters worldwide!

I look forward to seeing more of this army as you paint it.

You're awesome! The army looks fantastic and the sculpted models rock!

Thanks all of you. I will do my best.

To yeancientone: I'm living in Shanghai, and there are many palyers in this city.

Now I make a steam tank follow my original design. It may cost a lot of time. So I will update this post after considerable days. If you are interest in this project, you can see here: http://www.warhammer-empire.com/theforum/index.php?topic=15219.0

Thanks for your attention again.

DAMN DUDE!

I just read the thread you linked too, you should post those pictures here and make it into a tutorial. That truly is some amazing work and work that I am sure many of people could benefit from.

Can't wait to see that beast painted.

Much better than my first attempts, which were also Empire...and Aldorf! Looking good, keep painting.

Hey I realize that maybe the thread is dead now but I can't see any of the photos except for ones of a steam tank which looks awesome but thats it and it is mis-labeled.

Um, I can't see any of the pics except for the steam tank, and by the way that tank looks great.
