The Guildmasters of Pfeildorf and their militia

I really wanted to complete this regiment before the end of this year. As I said before, the 8 last models painted these last two weeks were meant for the rear rank, so, even if the painting is not perfect, it is barely visible :)

Enough talking, pictures! On the front rank, the Guildmasters, the shield bearers and their fiercest bodyguard. Behind them, a bunch of Marauder Miniatures (mainly from the citizen MM62 range) and a last rank of Citadel Fighters/Dogs of War designed by Aly and Trish Morrison.







And now the army points: my militiamen are equipped with spears and light armour, plus a musician and a standard bearer, which gives a total of 272 points. Less than 10% of the whole army... Sigh.

  1. This defies words. It is simply beautiful. Looking forward to the remaining 90% ;)

  2. They look like a painting :) The composition is superb - it looks like a group of men (beings?) stood together rather than four ranks of miniatures. 272 points? Rome wasn't built in a day, as they say. Just imagine how beautiful the entire army will look especially next to the Dwarves.

  5. Wonderful looking unit, and a great use of many old miniatures, including merchant miniatures. Really lovely painting. I like the use of the Halfling pages. The positioning of the standard bearer in the second rank really allows a better visual effect for the front rank.
    A Guildmaster regiment is a good idea, I might borrow it for my Marienburg army (based on the Empire army list).

    1. Merci. La milice rend bien, mais ça s'est fait presque par hasard.
      Par comparaison, la Garde a été peinte sans beaucoup plus d'idées a priori, et le résultat est moins péchu. Comme quoi, on ne maîtrise pas toujours ce que deviennent les régiments.

  7. Autant de caractère concentré en une seule unité, c'est génial, comme si chaque figurine racontait sa propre histoire, superbe !
