Default My Empire

So decided to paint some of my Empire, which originally I'd given up on but for some reason I just felt like painting them. I've started my Greatswords and they are nearly done (old metal ones) but I've recently semi-completed my Knights of the North Star which are based on the card below.



Here's a picture I got off on my new phone which I don't truly know how to use yet and it doesn't seem to focus very good, so apologies for the quality of it.

They seem to match the card quite well.

It is a little hard to comment on detail without a sharper picture.

Tried to get some better ones. Will take some pictures of my Greatswords soon, they ain't really fully done yet. I'm pretty sucky when it comes to painting banners, I tried to do a red cross with white outside with some black to border it, also did some rough silver crosses on it to.

Nice. Always like watching a uniformed colours of the Empire. Thought it's not very sharp (and my blurry eyes), are all the horses in the same colour? In my own opinion, horses could have some variation to add more flavour to the unit. Like what you do for their bases too.

"Sigmar commands!!!".... and "Blood for the Blood God!!!"

One or two of them are grey and brown but I will do more for them, always an after thought for some reason heh. I got a Blackberry phone now but I can't figure out how to get it to focus properly.

Thinking of actually changing my army to stirlanders, because I want to include halflings in my army and Stirland seems to fit them best. Might repaint my knights to, not quite happy with them.
