Pike & Shotte & Old World

 The success of the old world in my area had me looking at alternative armies for the factions not yet supported. Fortunately, Warlord Games makes a whole range suitable for the Empire. I might even play Pike & Shotte as well. I think that is one of the side benefits to Warhammer coming back. Interest in historic games gets a signal boost.

Gauls For Hail Caesar

I've been having fun using speedpaints to paint miniatures that I might otherwise not paint. Speedpaint is just satisfying to use. I am a long way off from having enough models for a Hail Caesar game, but progress is being made. Now the questing is whether I keep painting models for this army, or I start my Italian wars Pike and Shotte army. The temptation is to just flitter around like a magpie.

Warhammer The Old World Empire Cannons


With my Bretonnian army completed, I started working on the Empire of Man. It looks like GW borrowed the asthetic heavily from the German Landsknecht forces of the 1500s, so I painted accordingly. I wish I hadn't used purple since that was not common, but it was within reach so it got used. For my pikemen I will try to stick with yellows, blues, greens, and reds.
