To mark the new year , I have opted to enter a tournament and take the chance to tidy up my Empire army. So I have ordered some new figures… yummy… Whilst waiting for the postman to knock I thought I would paint up a flag and talk you through the way I go about these things. Way back when I started painting the Empire, I selected two colours that I thought would go together, looking at my colour wheel I choose blue and cream. Now, years later, I have done some research and it appears I am painting up a Nordland coloured army (who would have guessed). Complete with this new found knowledge, I looked up the appropriate flag on the Warhammer empire site . This sets the general tone of the principal army flag. In the case of Nordland this is red and blue with pictures of ships and griffin s. Not liking the red and blue combination, I decided to keep to a blue and cream colour.
