Still my favourite Imperial Guard figures. Lovely work on them, you should be very pleased with them.

Thanks again fellas  :)

For May Iím going to cheat a bit and tart up and re base some figures Iíve already had done. They were painted a long time ago and certainly need finishing. Thereís quite a few figures that actually need parts completing and all of them need final highlights and varnish.

Hereís a group shot of them all (these are the only ones that are in this state, everything else is unpainted or primed). Iíll also do some sabot trays for the artillery  :)



cheers

James

Made a cheeky start on the above last night  :D

Two guns, crew and new bases. The figures had some touching up and a coat of matt varnish. The sabot trays for the guns are new as well.

Just noticed I still need to drill the barrel out on the cannon  ::)

Maybe the barrels have been plugged? Lovely paintwork though and I like the fact that the figures sit within the base.

I'm guessing they're from Nordland.

Thanks chaps  :)

Nope, I'm just an idiot  lol

Yup, I like the contrast as well as the naval aspect (hopefully more on that later).

Interest re colours. My knowledge of the genre is negligible  :D

The Empire (Games Workshops version of Europe) was made up of various city states that had their own colours and characteristics. Nordland are blue and yellow and have a strong naval presence.

I used to know them all but it's been many years now and have forgotten a fair bit of it.

I finished tarting up the Elector Count for Nordland, Jakob von Sternheim  :)

New base and shield along with replacing his shield arm, touching up here and there and then a liberal coat of mat varnish. The shield design is his coat of arms and is carried by his household greatsword unit(more on which later).
The horse is the Perry Green Knight one, the lower legs from the same, the upper body and head were from another Elector Count but with a hat change and both arms are from the plastic Empire knights set.
