A little Empire building...

I've kind of lost my project mojo of late. I'm still fiddling about with the tail end of several large projects but there's not much real drive to be had. I often get this way when things are nearing the end and the answer is usually to start something new. I don't mind things overlapping, in fact I quite like it.

That being the case I've properly kicked off my next big fantasy project - a 6th/7th edition Warhammer Empire army, most like heading down the Artillery Train of Nuln path as I love a good cannon or six. Or ten...

Whenever I start something like this I invariably have a random selection of miniatures already hidden about the place and this is no different. This year I scored a pile of Perry metal state troops at CANCON and last week added some knights from fleaBay. A few donations here and there plus the overlap / extras from my long ongoing Dogs of War project I've already got a pretty decent start. Really what I need at the moment are more halberdiers and handgunners plus some swordsmen although a few more knights wouldn't hurt either.

Handgunners, halberdiers, outriders and knights.

Today was spent stripping, repairing and sorting a pile or three of lead. That'll continue for a good few weeks yet as other things find their way here (i,e. the greatswords in the post). There's also some conversion work to be done to add variety and flavour. When my hands aren't busy there's a load of reading, pondering, "math" (or my version of it), more reading and pondering, Googling, ogling, spending and probably yet other things to keep my brain occupied.

The project mojo is back and it's all good....

PS. Age of Sigmar? Meh.

Cheers,
Millsy
