Thread: Finished 3000+ Point Empire Army

    Finished 3000+ Point Empire Army

    Hey everyone.

    This army was started to have a big fun game before a friend of mine moved away. We agreed to each build and paint 3000 points in the past couple months and have one huge game versus a couple friends Orcs and Goblins. I also made the castle and we are playing on an 8x6. I will have the battle report after the game next weekend.

    The scariest part of the army isn't it's size, but I am honestly thinking about and looking forward to more units of 50.

    Anyway onto pictures:

    Army shots. The army is a coalition of Reikland cities and neighbors based on existing fluff. I made units out of the Heraldry book when possible.







    Karl Franz and his retinue. There is a representative model from each unit in the army (personal guard from the fighty units, a fat advisor from Bogenhafen and an advisor from Nuln artillery). This represents an Arch Lector on Altar. I did not want an actual Altar because I wanted this army to be a 100% trained soldier army. No flagellants. I admit there are a couple warrior priests but I tried to make them as clean and "not grimdark" as possible.

    Bogenhafen unit. Bogenhafen is in the heart of Reikland and is famous for it's wine.





    50 Halberdiers of Reikland. I wanted at least one generic Reikland unit.

    50 Halberdiers of Altdorf. Altdorf is the capital city and this represents the famous Company of Honor out of the Heraldry book.

    35 Swordsmen of Nuln. This represents Grendels Defenders out of the Heraldry book. They are charged with defending the artillery.





    The famous Carroburgh Greatswords. Not technically in Reikland (on the outside of the Middenheim border) but they fight for Reikland.

    Engineers and artillery from Nuln. Not a part of Reikland but the fluff of the battle is they are defending Helmgart, an important entrance to the Empire, and in my humble opinion it would make sense for Nuln to swing over and help out.

    Reiksguard Knights. Required! It's ******* Reikland...




    Now off to magnetize them all. It turns out it's impossible to move a 50 man unit with a metal standard bearer...

    Very impressive army. That would take me 4 years to paint and it would be worse.

    To paint so many models so well is ridiculously impressive.
