Road to Adepticon- Fresh Paint

Road to Adepticon- part II

Here's my newest finished pieces for my Empire. First up my mounted Battle Standard Banner the Ludwig Scharzhelm model, thou I just use him as a Empire Captain BSB. This model is one royal pain in the ass to work with..it unwieldly enough that you can't really paint it unless its in two pieces, and assembling the two pieces is tough as its top heavy. as glue wont hold it well accelerator was useless it took quite a bit of work and I won't be suprised if it falls apart. I ended using Super Glue, green stuff and pins to attach the banner and upper torso to the horse.



Painting all the detail on this guy took some time, I could still spend more time on him if I had it but I settle on it as is..I am overall happy with where its at, it completments my army well.


I am going to do some inking on the KF side of the banner, it needs a bit more pop. The letters aren't quite crisp enough.







Here are my Flagellants...I spent some time on these guys too...probably almost as much as the mounted BSB and this is 20 guys!



I love these guys they are money, they can't take charge from 5 Blood Knights with a Vampire Lord..but can hold just about anything else..Ancient Stegadon, No problem.

Speaking of VC, Bill came over today and we did a 2250 tourney style practice game. VC crushed the Empire hard...I made a bad call with my greatswords early and had another stupid dice debacle. I think I am projecting a pyschosematic mojo on myself when ever I play VC, as I just cannot beat these guys with Empire...I think the Stank is the only answer..too bad I won't have one on the table until the summer. Anyway more on mine and Bills game later..just wanted to put some pics up.

Very stunning job on both the BSB and the unit! The BSB will make a great focal point for your whole army!

That is some phenomenal freehand work.

Bill Lim said...

Great work, as echoed by the others. I have seen these guys up close and personal and they are every bit as good as the pics. Better in fact.

Good luck at Adepticon.

Flagellants = evil.

Though it's fun to play tag with them and shoot them to death.
