Another update for my Empire but first the latest rumours regarding Empire. It now seems that Empire will arrive in April together with the new paint range. So looks like a really exciting time next month. And another thing that I'm really looking forward to but isn't war gaming related, Diablo III will be released on May 15! Busy days ahead it seems :) Anyhow, on to the stuff I'm been doing lately.
I have been painting more Halberdiers so eight new soldiers arrive to the unit including the Unit filler with the fearsome locking Bear! I have also done a a new movement tray for them and the the idea is to make this my first magnetized tray. The problem is that I don't have enough magnets right now but I will order a couple of hundred of them so this won't be a problem. I will try to magnetize most of my trays and hopefully this will result in lesser amounts of damaged models.
|The unit as it looks now, 24 men and 1 bear strong. So pretty much half of the unit is done.|
|Some added details on my movement tray, but I'm afraid I'm not a good friend with camera just yet so this blurry pic will have to do.|
|Really like this model and needed to put it somewhere, so why not in a Halberdier regiment?|
|It was really fun and quite easy to paint, used Vermin Brown as the base colour for the bear fur.|
|Last pic for today, a army photo with most of the stuff painted. Missing some Greatswords, ten Crossbowmen a Stank and a whole lot of unpainted stuff.|
