Mounted Warrior Priest

I'm avoiding work.

Just a quickie: my mounted warrior priest conversion.

I love these characters, and I think this chap's my general at the moment. His cloak and shield are fairly basic greenstuff sculpts - a latenight attempt, but it'll do.

I should point out (for anyone concerned about it): that the basic quality of my painting is because I don't want to spend too much time on these miniatures! Once I've more of them finished (note the disproportionate amount of 'foundation' colours I'm using on them) I promise I'll wash them in something to give them a bit of detail. Honest. It's a chance to try washes anyhow. But not yet!

Here he is (and I know some of the grass is loose):

Caption comp for that last one?

- Drax.
And yeah - I changed the blog title. This one's way cooler.

The Empire Strikes Drax

Hullo All, and welcome.

I've been blogging about my progress with my Warhammer 40K Imperial Guard army for almost a year now, and (with a bit of persuasion from 73rd over at The Whispering Woods) I've decided to use this new blog as an occasional means of recording my progress with my Warhammer Fantasy Battles Empire army.

My plan (ha!) is to keep this simple and very occasional: mostly because I've never yet played a game of Fantasy and I only paint the miniatures when I need a break from endless Guardsmen.

I'm not planning to add much in the way of gismos - I'm not even planning to change the font to 'Arial' as I normally do - but hopefully there'll be a few pictures up with most posts.

Here's my great cannon to start us off - I hope the slow match detail can be seen:
I've only a couple of units finished so far, but four units are pretty damned close. Watch this space, if you're interested.

Thanks for stopping by,

- Drax.
