Recently i decided to start playing The Empire, a pet hope of mine in fantasy. 2 days after i bought the book i saw that the empire were rumored to be updated so i decided to wait until the new models and book came out.

I joined the tale of 4 gamers(seen here) to keep me going with the project

3 weeks later (today) I went to the Derby GW and bought this :

the army book, 2 wizards, a witch hunter, 20 handgunners, 5 pistoliers and a celestial hurricanum/luminark of hysh.

i will update the list for the tale of 4 gamers in a while, when i have read the codex :p

bye for now


[EDIT] list incoming:

battle wizard with level 2 upgrade 100

20 handgunners/crossbowmen 180

looks awesome so far, want to see some paint!
there will be paint soon my friend, just not tommorow :p
The detail in that kit is really exceptional! I am sure it is going to look great!
thanks dude, much apreciated
a test model is in the process of being painted, and will be up within 2 hours.

i decided on a light blue and white checkered scheme, going with the Light collage of magic colors, as im going to have several light wizards and most of my friends who play fantasy have undead armies :p
Great work so far, looking forward to seeing some paint on these guys

right, here is the test model



the white will be a pain to paint, but hopefully it will be easyer with the new white paints.

the unpainted models look better than most of my tomb kings and the test model looks good
also who the hell is aldor schulz?
he is the captain of my Empire army, who is under the command of the light wizards of Hysh :p
that makes sense but light wizards of hysh dosent as hysh is the wind of magic for light isnt it?
anyway are u going to post tommorrows battle?
Cool project Khrone. I really like the colours but then I have a soft spot for blue and white together. Kind of reminds me of paladins. Have you based this in white because the blue looks quite vivid and the white looks slightly dirty(?). Though the scheme looks good! I'll be following this :)
thanks for the comments :p

i painted it by undercoating the cloth in astronomican grey, painted the blue bits with enchanted blue then with 1:1 enchanted blue to ice blue, then 1:2 enchanted blue to ice blue. the white was a 1:1 astronomican grey to white then pure white in 2 layers.

i have "undercoated" the cloth and done the blue on the other 10 handgunners, pics will follow tomorrow morning :p

ok, here are pictues of the outriders, and the WIP shots of the first 10 handgunners.
