I also logged in to Blogger and am currently also figuring out the new layout haha!
Good tidings! I have received my copy of the the Empire Army Book at last :) With 2 really nice miniatures to accompany it- the Hurricanum/Luminark set and the new plastic Empire Griffon set.
I did a recalculation of my old Empire list and points have gone up. I can no longer squeeze all the dudes from my older list into the new one.
More Samurai WIP
Back to more Samurai stuff!
Assembly work on the Samurai have been slow. I've had to reposition the arms as i wanted to give them more unique poses.
Above pic is just a rough idea of how a 30 man group would look like. They will be the counts as Empire Swordsmen.
Above is the rest of the army still in assembly. There are a LOT of guys!
Knight Calvary WIP
I'm trying to do a Knight heavy army cos of the Unicorn Clan theme. So lots of Samurai warriors on horses. I wanted to field the normal Knights, Inner Circle as well as the Reiksguard Knights.
Given the need to differentiate them, I will use for the normal or standard knights, the Yari trooper armored bodies. For the Inner Circle, i will use the Samurai warrior armored bodies.
The Reiksguard will be a bit of a challenge though, as they will represent a group of Utaku Battle maidens in a unit together. I ordered some female elf heads from Hasslefree Miniatures.
I did not mount the bodies on the horses yet as they have not arrived. I initially intended to just stick them on the Empire Knights. Sadly my Knights have also left the country for overseas campaigning. I ordered in 4 boxes of some good looking and very affordable minis from Fireforge Games. They are the Mounted Sergeants models.
These cost about 16 British Pounds for 12 plastic Knights. So thats 4 more than the Brettonian Knights box set from GW. This means i will have 48 knights. I'm not going to field them all though heheh!
All the assembly though fun has taken lots of time from painting. So i applied some basic colors to practice my skillz ;)
I am still planning some dual armies even though progress is slow ;) The 48 Knights can also be used to field a Brettonian army. I just have to switch the Yari troops (counts as Men at Arms). But we'll see how that goes...
And on that note i bid my blog farewell again...until the next entry.
Take care one and all!
May Time, this precious resource, avail Itself to all our passions in Wargaming and Phantasy ;)
