Empire - Halberdiers and Crossbows

These are part of the older paintjobs (read: need to be touched up) that I will post here before moving on to the newly painted figures.

Some halberdiers from the Foundry. Musician is a 6th edition plastic drummer (I wanted them all to have matching "dresses").


Some Crossbowmen (DOW):


More halberdiers from the Battlemasters set. The champion is converted from the battlemasters cannon crew. The shields are freehand. I have more but I'll be concentrating on much more interesting figures before I complete this unit  of clones.

EMpire - Introduction and Older paintjobs

Well, something like 6-7 years ago, possibly a bit longer, I made a start with painting my empire figures. Now I can see several things that need to be improved (especially higlighting and shading), but with exception of the most glaring bits (like the knights' barding that needs some shading/highligting), I will concentrate on the more or less 1000 figures I have left to paint for this army (give or take a couple hundred).

When I started painting this, I went for the nostalgic red, yellow and blue scheme and I must say that, seeing them together, I still like it. It's quite striking on the table. So I will continue with that. In addition to the regular "KF", some also have the initials "WK", which stand for Willem Karl (ok, it's derived from my username) who is my supreme commander in the fluff that only exists in my head.

Enough talk. Here are the pictures. Take in mind that these are old paintjobs and I have gotten better since.
