Hello fellow empire generals.

Having collected empire for several years and Not been able to post up my stuff.

I have finally made the effort to get some pictures and stuff so here we go.
My army so far consists off....
Characters - 1 Knight Grandmaster, 1 General of the empire, 2 Captains, 1 Wizard lord on Pegasus, 3 Warriors priests, 5 Battle wizards, 1 Engineer

Cores -  35 swordsmen, 25 spearmen 45 halberdiers, 20 handgunners, 20 crossbowmen, 15 archers, 20 free company

Specials - 20 Greatswords, 2 Great cannons, 2 Mortars, 5 Outriders, 5 Pistoliers,

Rares - 1 helstorm, 1 Hellblaster, 4 Iron-guts ogres allies, 25 Flagellants

Thats my whole army so far, I do however have spare 20 handgunners/xbowmen.

Ill post some fluff up for my army at a later date but heres a few pictures of my stuff so far.

Grandmaster Riker Orestus of The Knight Panthers.

(Sides)




First unit of 10 X-bowmen (Excuse the terrible pictures ill try take some better ones)



These guys are almost finished just need bases painted/flocked and Some inking for there armour and weapons.

Then i had a idea of doing a unit filler for my swordsmen in from of a ogre which i have seen a good few times being done so here my take on him so far.



Still early work on him with some armour and State trooper cloth and A chest plate. I am still deciding him heads fate so please throw any suggestions and stuff thanks.

Well thats me for now, I have abit of a deadline to i have around till 5th of June this year to get at least 2250pts of empire finished so time to get working hard.

I will post some more work later on in a day or 2.
Cheers and stay tuned.

Seeing your deadline being so short to get all that painted I wish you luck, and won't call out some pointers yet.

First get it table ready then we will talk about how to improve your paining :)

Love to see another Nordlander that I can sometimes go and rescue!

Hey and thanks StealthKnightSteg for wishing me luck i am on a very buzy few weeks but still do feel free to comment on my paint :D.

So i bring some more....finished my swordsman ogre.






I took those photos last week and Managed to get some w.i.p painting done on him.





Made some pistoliers i hope to take next month for my tourney i didnt bother taking pictures of the normal ones but here the champion which is more unique.




Since the 10 crossbowmen were  terrible i gave them a make over so have a look and Better photos to!.




I went abit mad this month and Bought more stuff 20 new greatswords, new empire army book since i've lost my current one :/ AND to top it off.....



I would like any tips or whatever to help me improvement my painting would be much appreciated.
Thanks and Long live the Empire!  :happy:

Your green stuff work is awesome.

As far as your painting, I would ask you are you going for a rough blamblam thank you mam? or are your trying to make them look really good? If your trying to make them look great I would suggest Highlighting and using additional colors and less paint. Gets some washes aswell that will help you! Maybe try doing some drybrush work?

Good luck, I would love to see more conversions from you.
