Silver Wolf's Talabheim army
« on: June 25, 2010, 04:53:33 PM »
Hi guys I'm finally posting my army blog...
I'm new to Warhammer, but I'm pretty familiar with it...

I've chosen Empire because it's inspired by Renaissance, one of my favourite parts of history (and it's close to The Eagle and the Radiant Cross too) .

Second of all, it's on the edge of destruction, surrounded by bloodthirsty races ready to destroy it and it needs to struggle to survive...

I also like their color schemes... And there's plenty of them to choose and my favourite ones were :
- Nordland (it reminded me of Haelmarian union, my favourite faction from The Eagle and the Radiant Cross )
- Averland (yellow and black, just like Holy Roman empire)
- Talabecland (just because I like yellow and red)

I've chosen Talabheim in the end... And It's settled in Talabecland so I can always paint part of my army in that style to represent reinforcements from other parts of the province...

I've also noticed certain similarities with Lotr... But I'm not going to say anything about that right now...



My army currently consist of :
- 5 metal greatswords (6th edition)
- 8 panther knights from knightly orders pack (not yet assembled)



I'll post a picture of my first ever painted miniature soon (it's about 80% finished)... I'll just have to find my camera and a nice background...
... It looks like it'll have to wait till tomorrow... It's getting a bit dark here...

The pictures will have to wait until i manage to lay my hands on the camera...

I've also rushed a bit with my judgment... Now it seems to me that my miniatures are only 50% done... They've got lots of tiny spots which need fixing/repainting...

So here they are : my first ever painted miniatures... Unfortunately they look quite ugly and they are still unfinished (heads, hands and swords... And the gold color is just a placeholder... it's a mix of GWs Chainmail and no name yellow color)



I was trying to take pictures using different light sources... And the middle one is the best in my opinion...

are you another painter fed up with the dark 'gothic' paint schemes of recent years?
I hear you!

'Eavy Metal, go back to the 90s style of bright, vibrant, contrasting colours!

I've bought 20 old clanrat models for around 8 pounds... Now I'm going to practice painting :D

Ok... I've taken a picture of three almost finished Reiksguard knights from my local WH club... I've painted them, but you probably won't be able to see the details... Mobile phone = blurry, grainy pictures

My classes were horribly boring today, so I've spent most of the day drawing this :
