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

I like the way the whites and blues turned out on both the wizards, but it seems a bit more rushed than your work on the state troops. there are places of paint spill/overlap, especially on the front of the second light wizard guy, that are really distracting. Your blending is still nice and very eye catching and the monkey looks very cheeky. I like the way that he turned out.

I like the fire wizard as well. My only two suggestions on him are that his hair feels a bit flat and undefined. Some more definition between the strands of hair would really help. Also, and I am not sure what can be done about it now, but the seam line between the front and back piece of the model itself is really noticeable and detracts from the nice red you have managed to achieve in the cloak. Perhaps some liquid Green Stuff before primer in the future would sort that out. I do really like the way your flames came out though and his face is nicely done.

Keep up the good work Khorne!
thanks for commenting :biggrin:

the wizards were abit rushed, as i was working in between homework, and i now regret that :(

on the second light wizard on the thing in his middle, the colours are meant to cross over, so the top has blue with white trim and the bottom has white with blue trim, to make it stand out.

i could (and probably will) add a thinned down badab black wash on his hair to define it more, then re touch up the white.

the seam on his cloak was perfect when he was assembled, but to paint the inside of his cloak and the torso robes, i had to take his arms off then glue them on again once i had finished painting, and it left that massive gap:(, might just not glue them on before priming next time.

im glad you liked the face, as its the first time i tryed glazes, by watering down mechrite red and wasnt sure how it would turn out :)

thanks again

I really like where you're going with these guys, and like what you've done with them. As I'm still unsure what WFB army I want to go for it's nice to see what others do.
I'm now following your blog and this thread

Great job man. The colours will definatly make him pop and I really like the way his face turned out. Enjoy some rep :)
thanks for the nice comment, and rep :p
Good work mate, I like how you have still kept the underlying colour scheme whilst making him look original
thanks everyone
Nice Mini's + Rep

I would suggest going back to the banner and outlining the division between the fields with a micro pen... it would give it a nice hard edge to the different colors...

Good job with the fire...
nice painting much better than anyone i know
thanks dude
Dude what happened? Nothing more to show us? :(
no nothing more to show im afraid, and there wont be any more for about 2-3 weeks, as im studying for my GCSE exams, so there might be bits and pieces, but nothing major
yea i know the feeling, had to put my projects on hold for uni exams :( do you think cgall10 will give us a extension or let us skip a month out?
we can all ways hope :p

Things are looking good man. Nice smooth work on the horse's barding.
Those horses might make a cool ride for a mounted leader. You'ld just have to GS a saddle.
