I didn't know if you were going to leave that for him to design or not.

The design will totally be up to him (HINT HINT Joshua), but I'll make sure it happens on the model. Unless, that is, he doesn't want me to put a banner on it????

Updated pictures of the Black Sisters. They've been changed to our Standard Level. Basically, the skin, boots and reds were highlighted to help bring out some more detail on the mini. The metallic colors will also be getting some higlighting as well, but I thought I would share the process...

As I said before, I should have the Crossbowmen and Longbowmen up tonight sometime.

That is going to be a very nice looking army.

I hope it is going to crush its opponents at Talamania.

Sorry for being late with uploading the crossbowmen. I ended up heading off to bed early last night and tonight I went out with my wife and a couple friends to eat some sushi and have some sake. It was good, I must say! My wife finally tried it too and she seemed to enjoy it a bit.

Everything should be finished by tomorrow evening including the basing and final touch ups. We ended up making a couple banners out of green stuff for the Iron Guard Standard so you will get to see that as well. I hope you like everything so far!

 Very nice painting.I like how you have done them and think Joshua is going to be very happy with them.Looking forward to seeing them all finished and together in for an army shot.
 I would have liked to have sent some miniatures for painting but I think it would workout expensive from the UK.

Actually, it isn't as bad as you think if you're thinking about the shipping costs being high. We can ship to the UK for $20-$25 for a whole army. Anything over that and we'll eat the extra cost. If you're only having 1 or 2 miniatures painted I might be able to see the cost of shipping outweighing the cost of the painting, but you never know! :) If you're interested in having an army done, feel free to PM me or send email to admin@brandxpainting.com and maybe we can work something out!

They are going to be at Talamania regardless of who plays them.  I'm perfectly willing to share; they'll look great at our event.  The Black Sisters look good.  That was the right choice for the upgrade.  As for the banner, I've seen a few great looking ones that people have done, so I'll think of something.

I'm sure I'll love playing this army, as it looks so good.  I'm proud to say I've painted my Dwarf armies, but now I'm looking at models differently after seeing these!!
May the Dark Lords of Lead-Free Pewter smile kindly upon you.

I must admit-the massed effect is most impressive!
