I've finally taken the plunge and started my 8th edition army. I've been planning this army for a couple months now, but I've just recently actually started getting some models together. As the title suggests, I'm doing Talabeclanders. Their paint scheme is really appealing to me. It's got so much bravado! I managed to acquire a huge lot of Empire miniatures from a friend for very cheap. Unfortunately, they were mostly pre-assembled, so I'm mainly using them to play games with the army while I slowly replace each unit with models of my own. I really want to finish this army -my last fully painted army was in 6th edition, the shame!- however my plans are pretty grandiose, so don't expect this log to go much faster than a snail's pace. Anyways, without further adieu, here are some pictures of my first painted miniatures!
OK, so maybe I didn't paint them, and maybe they are revolting in their awfulness; so sue me. They're now basting in simple green, awaiting the moment to march forth and prepare for great project of making with file mold lines off doing! In the mean time, here's a slightly more serious picture: some early WIPs of my pistolier unit. Try to contain your excitement.
I haven't painted horses in ages, so I anticipate them being a bit of a challenge. That's it for now. Progress pics in the definite medium to slightly removed future.
