DAMN! No offence, but I didn't expect that level of painting skills, Dan!!
You've been holding out on us! >:P
Also, Saul, if you're 'whelmed' as you so elegantly put it, that means that you're fighting on an equal footing, and that both sides are at a deadlock, which means no immediate action is going on, which takes out the verb part of that adverb. You just have ad. No one likes popup ads.
Damn those are some nice looking models! My only question is, in a land where the dead walk would it be advisable for the militia to be wearing skull masks? It looks cool, but what happens when poor jumpy Hans looks behind him and mistakes Sven for a skeleton?

This army already looks mighty awesome! Your conversions really add a lot of character to your units. Brilliant! Cannot wait to see it all painted up!
Okay, quick update:
I only completed the bases on the first two as a test, the rest will get the full treatment once I finish the unit.
Oh, and this might help:
Wow, the painting really brings the models together.
Wow! Those guys are brilliant, a muted, atmospheric paintjob! Keep it mate
Looking good, especially the faces.
Also nice to see that you included the hourglass in your heraldry.
well i have just spent the last hour and a bit reading the entire thread from start to finish and i think that this is by far one of the most indepth project logs i have viewed to date, fantastic conversions fantasic painting really truly 5/5.
Also as i have read and digested so much already not sure if someone already mentioned this but one of your knightly conversions was a bearded man with a skull mask raised to the peak of his helm, i dont know why but this reminds me of General Kael from Willow. (see attached image)
Anyhow keep up the amazing work
Wow. Some great conversions and painting there. Can't wait to see more.
Can you explain what colours you use to paint flesh? It is one area that I really struggle with and yours looks exactly how I would like mine to look.
Sweet stuff you've got there, Dan! Never stop fighting those pesky undead.
All your minis are so full of charcater and sometimes your conversions are quite funny, they make me think about a classical zombie-film. But instead of shotguns and chainsaws you got crossbows and halberds. Awesome!
So keep up the great work!
Carlsberg dont do Grimdark Slyvanian Empire Armies..... But if they did they would Probably be the best.....
(Hope you had that particular Carlsberg advert over in America otherwise that makes no sense whatsoever! In fact do you even have Carlsberg Beer there?)
Anyway they look great in that paint scheme, its original and your not tied to the state colours like so many Empire forces. Painting style is top drawer it suits the theme so well, I particularly like the metal.
Looking forward to seeing all the fight scenes painted up.
Great work! Praise the Lord!
Marius Leitdorf is not dead, I bumped into him in Tesco last week.
