Looking good, just one little tip.  Try painting a small black dot on the end of the barrells of your handguns, as solid silver doesn't look like they actually could shoot.  (they just look like a piece of metal on a piece of wood.)  But, other than that, it is looking good.

I love the unsureness of the spearmen! "thru faith we purge?"  :biggriin:

Though as a British person I feel I must don my top hat, monocle, cane and stiff upper lip and say, it is "through" sir, not "thru"

I like the knights, what is the back story? the Laurel on the 4th one along looks like it will fall off though.

The cannons look fantastic!

I always forget to paint the handguns. I sit down to paint and then I totally loose track. I'll remember this time.

I purposely spelled through wrong. Thought it gave them a little bit more flair. "Thru faith we purge." I Thought incorrect spelling would be simply put comical, and my close friends know that I am an absolute bismal speller.

Order of the Dead Count- An elite small order dedicated to seeing a return of a united Averland, and to persevering the current state, as well as protecting its citizens and possible future candidates. Wanted to dbl check fluffy lore before I made them a full blown background.

Loving the overall look of the army!
Where is the standart-bearer in the center of pic 1 from? I assume its a bit and not a whole-cast model?

The bodies and banner from the swordsmen unit is from the greatswords bits sprue. The banner from the spearmen unit is from the handgunner sprue I believe. I buy battalion boxes then split them into squads of 10 for building and painting then I take all the bits and organize them by body part... When I need a "cmd squad guy" I just browse and mix and match till i find something.

looks good so far,but you need some shading and some highlights

take your yellow for example
you could highlight it with sunburst and then wash the whole thing with ogryn flesh

also wash the skin with ogryn flesh

and the Metal with Badab

your army is nice as it is now,but with this tips you could do a lot better

keep it up
