    Thanks. :)
    Have you thought about the Vampire Counts? Zombies and twisted ghouls is maybe up your alley?

    Funny pic Stormy. :)

    These are my latest minis; some more of my "marauder" beastmen and some hounds. I'm happy with the front doggie, I modded him so he doesn't have a huge wound in his side.

    These look great :goodjob:

    I ended up ordering a cold one knight unit, and a guard (dont remember its actual name).
    I have no idea what the scheme will be like, but i will probably use purple for the robes.

    Btw, why did you choose beastmen, Mrtn?

    Wow, those are some cool conversions!

    The unit is called Black Guard, Varwnos.

    I got the idea for the colour scheme; yellow savannah-living lion-ish beastmen. So I started a Mordheim warband which later developed into an army. I like the beastherd models before, but this was why I started.
    But now I've stopped working on the beastmen until the new armybook which should come next autumn. Now I'm working on Warriors of Chaos (the old metal beastmen I use as marauders in this army) and will continue on the skaven when they get their new armybook in the summer/spring.

    @Stormy; there's only one converted model in that pic...

    I think its the Dark Elf Warriors, and then you choose wether to give them xbows or spears.

    Or it might be Shades.. They are "ranger" types.

    The crossbowmen are made from the same box as the spearmen, the warrior box. It's probably good to get some of them, as they're a Core choice, and you need a certain number of Core units in an army (three in a 2000 p force).
    You can probably find something of interest at www.druchii.net

    Ty :)

    Is there any varnish in maelstrom? I could not find it either. Their color collection is rather poor as well :/

    I finished those beastmen and doggies by adding static grass and shields:

    Is that a sculpt or a regular mini?

    I think that i will try to paint the banners as byzantine flags (like the one in my avatar). Also possibly use red instead of purple for the robes, so that the elves will look more like byzantine soldiers :)

    Btw here is a cool pic of some empire soldiers using the greek and byzantine emblem:

    Wow, that is a cool regiment! Great paint job!

    The Chaos Dwarf is a sculpt, but if I understood correctly, it will be made into a miniature :)

    I'm thinking of getting some broadsides soon...
    do you think that I should get the forge world version, or the standard broadside?

    A cold one knights and a black guard. They seemed too spikey for my taste.

    Btw, Warseer is down...
