Nice job on the High Elves Swordmaster.  Good to see you are making progress.

And on the topic of progress, even if it's progress on a glacial pace, I managed a couple of units for the Empire Ostland army.  Better late than never.  Looks like I won't make my 2000 points for December but will keep painting in any case.   Added to the army so far are a unit of knights and a Hellblaster unit.  Or is it two units?  From the Empire roster it lists the Hellblaster unit size as 1.  The blister comes with 2 so did I paint up two units?  If so, bonus for me.

Hellblaster




Reiksguard Knights




I went with Reiksguard rather than knights in Ostland colors because the Reiksguard are stationed all over the Empire and some alternate colors in the army will look nice and make the knights stand out.  Plus the red and white will still compliment the black, white, and red of Ostland.  In addition to a unit of Knights of the White Wolf, I think I will do two units of Reiksguard and one unit of Knights of the Silver Mts (from the Riders of the Dead book) for the 3 "standard" Knight units in this 2000 points.

Hi m4jumbo!

Your Empire minis looks awesome. Especially because of the Ostland paint scheme. In my opinion using the right basic colours for the whole army is the key for a good looking army. I got about 1.5k of Empire blisters and I think of painting them the same Ostland style thanks to your inspiration. Another option would be Talabheim red and white but I think I will go for the other. Also because I like the Ostland background better. But before I can start painting the Empire I want to finish my Undead army. I will post some pictures of the already finished Infantry below.

I ve been reading this thread for several weeks now and I am enjoying it. But now its time to contribute to it myself and share my progress with you.
At the moment I am painting an Undead army. I chose some brownish red as the main colour in case the main colour isnt bone. I already finished five units of spearmen and four Archers. There are another three spearmen in blisters left to paint because I would like to go for an army heavy on cheap infantry. But right now the cavalry is more important so I can get at least 1000p for some small demo games. There are three units of chariots on my workbench. They will need some more time to finish because normally I paint several units at a time. This mass production saves me some time but also gets boring sometimes. Think of basing five units of spearmen.... Next will be six units of cavalry but I think I will only do three at a time and then go for some carrions, monsters, war machines and of course characters. Hopefully these will be quicker to paint then the infantry and cavalry. So this keeps me busy for the next months. Then I also got a complete empire and chaos army to paint and I have to upgrade my high elves because I am not happy with the first painted minis anymore. So better to say I am busy for the next years....


@ azrael71

Thank you! I enjoy following your thread and the lot of posts. Too bad there are so few enthusiastic posters like you.

@ double click here, thanks for the comments on the Ostland paint scheme.  I'm happy with the way the army is turning out and appreciate the positive comments here.  Wish I could turn out units faster but things keep getting in the way of painting progress.

Your Undead units look good, looking forward to seeing more.  I've got a similar paint scheme on my Undead army.  I'll have to post some pics of the army at some point.

@ m4jumbo

I am curious to see some of your undead models. Maybe they inspire me as much as your empire troops. So it would be nice if you could post some pics when you got some time...
