Empire - color study (2)

First - sorry for that bad picture. But the experts among you will look at it and know which model I used for conversion :)
It is a simple conversion - just cutting of the arm, replace it with hammer-arm from mordheim sprue and add some puffyness with green stuff

I still consider this color scheme for my nobles.

Empire - color study

So I started an Empire army... back it the old days and not a single mini painted. I painted that marksman to test my alternative Averland Scheme - White/Yellow with black as 3rd color.

As background I used the freely downloadable paper model from Fantasy-Cutouts. It is a relative difficult model and much time consuming.

Feed Settings

I played with this blog's feed settings. I switched back to Full Feeds so you can read it however I would like when you also click from time to time to my blog. Currently you may have missed the great pictures from Ricco's Republican Guard.

I'm not so happy with the flames but the face is awesome (for my skills)

Ricco's Republican Guard

In the same timeframe I painted Ricco's Republican Guard. These models are really awesome! These are the best plate armors, which GW ever produced.

This is my favorite model and my Avatar at Dogs of War Online.com

Details (click to enlarge - should work):

bit blurry... sorry

4 identical models and so different! (last pic is shaked :( )
bad faces :(

cool Sallets

one looks left - the other one to the right

I really get better and better in painting eyes

Elite vs Special

I was told that in WHFB the special units are called special units and not elite units like in WH40k.
Well... in German translation it is both elite. Hence I continue tagging them as 1337

Spearmen (Eternal Guard)

So the next thing were 2 Spearmen test models. 4 years later I completed a unit of 16. When it is finished (in a few years) they will be 25 with full command.

The shields are jade green with some decals. There is only one shields with hand painted trees in this unit. And this happened due to a broken decal :)

So even within a single unit you can see how the painting skill improves. To show the variety of a unit of clones I photographed all identical models as a group.

just in case you have missed this wonderful face... sometimes you are lucky!

and some group shots...

I hope you have seen the best face paint job of this unit:
