Nice work, and the chain mail will look good when painted.

The photographs are at a much higher magnification than most people can see directly.

It might be useful to examine how chain mail is constructed, and how the original figure's mail is represented.

The figure's body armour is in definite rows, and that might translate to the shoulder pieces having a definite regular arcs (distorted by arm position).

Saying that, most chain mail does end up looking rather random.

I did my rows horizontally when I did them, I'm sur eit would have been less messy if it had been done vertically, saying that I may just try a few different ways and see what looks best.

Yeah, I think I can tolerate this. Might be making an order with Nick later.

Those are some nice looking conversions!
The guy with the blunderbuss looks particularly miffed.

where are the arms from? Are they from the Empire free company ?

Thanks.

Points to Luigi, yup, I had them spare and wondered if they'd fit, they don't, but with a bit of work and covering up gaps with greenstuff it turns out ok.

Peasants, there as a speed bump, or just because I can. Part of the clear the desk before building some more stuff project, this has a 50/50 chance of working as intended.

Might have to find a couple more figures to add to the unit to stop the ocd kicking in. Bases will be done later, along with the home made movement tray.

Great work on those! I always enjoy seeing some rabble in wargames armies. Somebody needs to shine the armour and polish the spears of the aristocratic glory hounds, after all.

Thanks, it might be a bit bizarre but my favorite bit of these is how the flames on the torches turned out, think it was the first time I've used that orange wash in about twenty years.

Thereís nothing bizarre about that, itís always fun when a new technique on a figure works out!

With the large amount of troops from Altdorf in this army the city have sent someone to lead their forges, I present Graf Schwarzkuchen.

A great name for a striking model. The blue and red contrast it truly is a classic.

Thanks, he only got painted as I found him looking for something else and thought he'd fit for the Altdorf contingent.

Found an undead chariot, built an undead chariot, painted an undead chariot, was so pleased I also painted some more skeletons that had been undercoated about a decade a go, also one new one from a wargames atlantic sprue that I got as a tester.

Dammit, just realised I've got 54 zombies to build and paint now.

Nice work! I donít know which version of (GW?) skeletons those are, but they have that oldhammer charm.
