    Egads!................ Empire!!!

    ......... and now for something completely different........... I'm starting empire! *gasp*. The plan is to build a 1000pt Stirland Force. As I think and army of poor woodsmen wouldn't be as 'uniformed' as the 'normal' state troops I'm going to be building everything out of Militia kits as they fit the bill perfectly. Plus they're cheap!

    Anyway, I did some testers.


    Great Sword




    Swordsmen




    Oh, and this project thread will also be dedicated to my Mordheim Warband and Board


    Forgot the 'to do list'


    Empire General - Great Weapon
    Wizard - Level 1 Beasts
    Wizard - Level 2 Life

    35 Swordsmen with 2x 10 Crossbow men for mates
    18 Great swords with 10 Hand gunners for mates

    10 Archers.

    Liking it. What shield have you used for the swordsman?

    So many people seem to be using the militia boxes let's hope Gw don't make them 10 man boxes for hideous money like everything else. Any idea on a list yet or is it a what you fancy doing each time?

    I'll be watching this thread mate, and the testers are looking good. The face in particular on the greatsword is outstanding!

    Commissar:
    Are they? Ah well, so much for an original idea!! I went for them because I've been playing Mordheim religiously for the last couple of months and have fallen in love with the sprues. There are just so many 'bits' and you can make so many characterful poses and characters out of them. As for the boxes, GW probably will as all such boxes are following suit. So buy them whilst you can!!! Oh, and I forgot to out up a list for them so I'll pop that in the first post.

    The shield is off a Chaos Marauder with the star sliced off.


    ChadMS:
    Cheers I always try to take a little bit longer on the face than any part as I think it 'makes' the model. Plus it's the bit people look at first so if you do it well people ignore the rest of the painting, even if it's shoddy!


    Rampant Haddock:
    Hey dude, glad you found your way here. Well, I hadn't really though about Great swords being expensive. Hmmm, maybe I'll do some two handed Axe men mixed in to the group? As for fluff......... I have no idea at this moment in time. Army wise they're a woodland patrol force but I haven't come up with any background for the characters yet.


    Cheers for the responses. I've just finished the White on all 9 members of my Mordheim Warband and base coated the Green. So I should have these done in a day or two.

    Perhaps not expensive in money, but any two handed sword would cost more to make than a simple one or axe. Obviously the better quality weapon the harder and longer it takes to make, time is money! Although maybe it's easier than I thought, I can't say i'm a blacksmith.

    It's your army of course, do what you like with it just as long we get to see nice pictures!

    Swords are a specialist weapon when it comes to creation. While an axe could be made by anyone a greatsword would need a great deal of skill to make. That said there are fluff ways around it. Paint the guys with greatswords up as older guys. Grey hair etc. That way you can say they arehanded down as heirlooms. The other answers of of course they stole it and that not everyone in stirland is poor.

    Although I now want to see guys with massive Dane axes. You'll just have an issue not making them look like cheap halberds!

    ps:marauder shield you say hmm may have a rummage in the bits box later and nick that idea if that's ok.

    Is this wise? (Considering the very real possiblity of a new army book next year? plus the new Warhammer Forge book coming at the end of next week?).

    Then again, I suppose 1000pts is a good "launch mat".

    Looking good Borak. The main green is nice and muted, but still works well. I also love that kit, it has all you need nearly.

    I have one complaint. Did you have the paint the first guys codpiece a green? Looks like he needs a doctor's view of it.
