    Very nice. I've been toying with the idea of a unit of the undead.

    It'd be wrong not to allow them to participate merely because they've shed their mortal coil........;)...

    Blimey! It's 2021. Better get something painted.

    1. An Ogre. I should've listened! The newer plastic minis from GW have far too much detail. But I had to have this one.

    2. A standard. Mr Willis painted this one. I changed the colours as much as was necessary to allow him to fit in. I now have a simple scheme for banners, pennants and such. I enjoyed trying to add shade and su tle highlights, such as I'm able too. So it'll be my into the spares box'll to see what I have.

    Okay. Now where was I? Two complete units for DR. A unit of Militia bowmen. Scurrilous rogues no doubt. Two are slightly modified from my Frostgrave band.

    And I've completed another unit of Swordsmen. I've stuck the warrior priest in there to make up the numbers, but I may add a banner in the near future.

    I've now got a small pile of 15mm Germans. I did them for Chain of Command, but the game shifted to 28mm once Shaun got his printers working. So I will base a bunch and put them on here

    Ogres! Never one around when you need one and then three or four of them turn up all at once.

    This fellow was previously in the ranks of my ill-fated Khornate Chaos Renegades force.

    You know, the army that kills half of it's own shooting units in the first turn due to their weapon having it's very own gets hot rule.

    He's not so worried now as his close-range shooting will probably be factored into his melee factors. Oh, and another swordsman.

    Another Ogre. In fact it's the last of the 3 Reaper Bones Ogres I had on my desk.

    I've changed the head again as I don't care for the Reaper originals and they fit in with the GW figures.

    And a unit of Whifflers. Still seen on occasion escorting Mayoral processions in England's green and pleasant land; it's a far cry from their role of keeping the troops in order and guarding the banners.

    All carry the Slaughter-swords that marked them out. And no guy that presents Forged in Fire; it's a corruption of the German Sclachtschwerter or battle-sword.

    Ah ha! Another Reaper Bones Ogre joins the merry band. The heads are a little Meh! and so I've replaced them with GW Ogre heads, courtesy of Texas Jim, who I trust is somewhere safe and secure in the present kerfuffle. Better stop there!

    The old Reaper head's attached to his belt as a trophy.

    And another Leadbelcher's added to the Roster. Complete with Knoblar Igniter Rick Monson!

    And Bruno the Small Dog says Hi!

    Very good of you Bryan. I'd be happy with the shields; but there're bow arms and quiver on the sprue by the look of it and I have a hungry bits box.

    I can now order another Reaper Ogre and commence my cunning scheme aimed at bringing diversity to my Empire force.

    Two of those shields and a plastic horse tail will be all I need.

    Will you be able to de-sprue and post?

    Most excellent Bryan. I had it in mind that it was from the Perrys Ansar range!

    I just need one and then I can look to complete an addition to my Ogre Auxiliaries. Let me know if you have one you can spare.

    Ogres. Can't have too many. More Guard and a unit off handgunners.

    PS Can anyone identify the plastic shield. It turned up in my bits box during a damn good sort and I realised that my life will not be complete until I get another one.

    Fencing. Several of my units will consist of the vertically challenged/ diminutively proportioned and so fencing may actually inhibit the armies ability to vanquish their foes.

    (I nearly put a few words like synergy into this paragraph; but I didn't want to trigger Ste' s stress monkey as he has enough of that to deal with at work).

    I may well make a few sections of Gulyay Gorod to count as pavise just to try them put. In the meantime we have a unit of swordsmen in team colours and a member of the latest unit to join up. It's pronounced Gehnomi BTW.

    I think the steam tank'll be safe enough once she's up to pressure.

    Another 6 handgunners and then I'll treat myself and do the Reaper Ogres.

    I am concerned about the prospect of facing a horde of McGregor's Halfling Militia though.

    I need a suitable unit of fierce yet diminutive warriors to oppose the pudding gobbling, furry footed band of livestock worriers.

    We could always starve them out by making them miss the first course of a meal but where's the fun in that?

    Luckily I saw a suitable mini on Lead Adventure and spookily enough I bought a partially made box of the donor figures required for the conversion from Phalanx several years ago.

    So i made one.

    I'll post a picture tomorrow of the first archer providing the sky doesn't fall on my head etc...........

    Volley fire! Now how can I possibly counter that? More Militia? Certainly.

    How 'bout artillery support. Bill the Ogre identifies as a regimental gun. Bigots tend not to challenge Bob's decision. Well, not in earshot of Bill or his little mate Zippo. His mate Ben's in the painting queue. Might do two more as crew with some gabions to represent field guns.

    And the first handgunners from the small hill of handgunners yet to be painted.

    Considering building a steam tank as well. A Great fire-breathing Warbeast kind of thing.........Might be in the market for suitable 3D printed wheels........
