Empire archer #6

Back on Pfeildorf's archers. I'll try to complete the second half of the my unit started last year in the coming weeks.

Marauder citizen CZ18. Second time I paint this model. Nothing much to say about it.

Marauder Giant MB7

At last! Three months and a half to complete this monster. It already fell twice, and I still need to touch up a few things in the back and on the barrel. Anyway... final pictures:

The endless story...

Since the last post, I've been able to paint the sword and the arms of the giant. First pictures show the shield and the sword glued into place. The sun is perfect to indicate the giant's allegiance to the Sudenland.

The following picture shows the left arm completed and some dirts and bruises added on the legs, below the knees (not sure you can actually see them, though).

The third set of pictures shows the two arms assembled. The trunk and the oddly sculpted moss or foliage was quite hard to paint properly, if you have some piece of advice to improve the look, feel free to post a comment!

Note the blood splatters all over the legs... not my initial intent, as I was only targetting the end of the trunk. In the end, it's not that bad.

Hopefully, the next post will be the final one for this giant!

Giant work in (slow) progress II

Well, that's it, couldn't make it before my holidays. As you can see, still a lot of hours to spend on it before completion...

Giant work in progress

I've been silent for a month now, blame the new model I'm working on! the famous Marauder Miniatures giant sculpted by Aly Morrison.

Despite the size and the fact that it's a good old metal giant, the different parts fit surprisingly well, which makes quite easy the preparation. Still had to fill some gaps here and there with green stuff.

Given the weight of the model, I've decided to glue it to the base, which would allow me to use a painting handle:

First, the 75x50 base:

And then the legs:

Below the references I've used for the skin:

And the preparation of the next parts:

Body fixed on the legs:

And the first steps of painting:

The plan is to complete it by the end of the month...

The squire and the page

Two retainers follow Baron Markus Toppenheimer on the battlefield: the squire is a slightly converted MM62 citizen (reference CZ 12), while the page boy comes from the original "Battle Lord" pack designed by Mark Copplestone.


And the models painted these last two months:

Baron Markus Toppenheimer

After the mysterious disappearance of Baron Olaf Seiktliebe, Baroness Etelka Toppenheimer named another nephew, Markus Toppenheimer, as her new heir. On the battlefield, he often leads the noblemen that are still attached to the former Elector of the Sudeland.

As for the model, I have used the 1987 Battle Lord designed by Mark Copplestone, mounted on a M66 horse (the original one being too thin compared to Trish Carden's sculpts).

His retainers should follow soon.
