Default New Empire Swordsmen

Couldn't resist painting the new Empire State Troops. While painting I have a few comments about the new sculpts.

Pros
-Lots of bitz in the sprues.
-Cool looking 'ards faces.
-Lots of scrolls and parchments, daggers and stuff on the troops making the characterful.

Cons
-Some details are hard to notice
-The frown on the faces seems wierd, most of them look-alike.
-I'm not sure but are the shields that small?

Nevertheless the models are fun to paint. So here's the first row.



The banner was especially tough, as I need to freehand both sides.

Insane Painting! How can you manage to get such thin , sharp strokes of paint like on the axe head , brilliant.

Outstanding, as always (I'm relieved I didn't have time to complete my HQ entry for this month's contest, I would have lost miserably to you).

Indeed, I have a habit of missing them. Think I'll hire a pet monkey to help me clean mold lines.

Hm? Unless you're talking of commission we can do that on PM.
