So, I finally got the chance this evening to set up my lights again (after almost a month without them) and take a few shots of my progress on my "Armies On Parade" army, my Artillery Train of Nuln. We last left off with the shot above, only ten more to go.
After picking up some "rubber steel" sheets from our Gale Force 9 stand at Cold Wars and a pack of magnets from the Warstore, I magnetized all of the bases in my Greatsword and Spearmen units. It has made transporting them to my irregular games of Warhammer much easier.
Anyway, here is the finished Greatswords unit, the Red Bears of Mecklenburg. Lots of shiny steel armor and zwei-handers.
The bear on the banner was based on the icon above, the insignia of the II Polish Corps' 22nd Artillery Supply Company. This unit served in the Italian Peninsula campaign during WW2 and their unit mascot was Wojtek, a beer-swilling, cigarette-smoking, ammo-carrying bear.*
The flashing wall of steel also looks pretty good in a column too.
And here are the first handgunners for the army, well under way. There are two units of Nuln Ironsides models that are "on deck" next. I also am now the proud owner of a Marienburg class Land Ship. Looking at the pieces and the scale of the task ahead, I think I'll take July off to finish it for Games Day : )
