Overall a great job !

As promised : Averlaaand!!!
Very nice use of seperate empire sprues, the helmet on the musician is a nice touch and the shields that they wear on their backs are not too shabby either! The pistolier heads make them look tougher, which is cool.. but absolutely not the truth as i've experienced last friday..  :unsure:
*cough* Morathi *cough*

Paintjob's a good one, but I think if you gave the feathers one last highlight they would look even better.
Still.. superb painting.. :D

Not yet, I currently working on a militia detachment for the spearmen I will post them here when I have done the front rank. I must warn you that I'm a slow painter.

Thanks to everybody for your comments  :::cheers:::

Thanks for the replies !!

@ Wyzer1: My brother plays Woodies so I get the spares from him.
@ Dino!: The yellow I use for my state troops is the foundation paint Iyanden Darksun which is really easy to use.
@ Your Mother: I couldn't agree with you more!!  :::cheers:::
