The Artillery Train of Nuln (Part 4)
Grundel's Defenders - Silver Demon in Baltimore 2010
So, after finishing up 36 soldiers from the 3rd Foot Guards (stationed in Spain during Old Boney's little bruhaha) last month - pictures to follow on the weekend - I decided December would have to be a solid month of painting my Empire army. With so many horde units in my list, I knew I had to get at least one of them finished by the end of the year.
I decided to take the easy route, if you think that having a 15-model head start on a 40-strong unit of spearmen is easy (which I do). Well, thanks to some late nights for me and long naps for my daughter, I managed to finish the rest of the unit in record time (not quite, but it feels good to be back on track) and although they're not the same quality as the original base of guys I'm happy with the result. Here they are, for your viewing pleasure.
Here are a few pics of some of the extra spearmen on multiple bases.
And of course, no unit from Nuln is complete without a powder monkey : )
Finally, here's a shot of the army as it stands now. Not too far advanced from the last shot, but it's getting there slowly.
