The week after the outriders of the former blog entry I painted this unit of 10 men with their mighty zweihanders.
I`m really happy with them and it was a pleasure to paint. I really like the armor which is kinda bigger than the one of the normal guards. But there is still enough cloth to give them the blue/yellow look and fit them into the whole Nordheim army. The different heads with more beards look pretty well too. It`s the first time I`m happy with the eyes I painted.
As you see the greatswords went with orange cloth stripes.
There is one special guy in this unit. I called him Iron Joe.
If he`s not too busy defending the growing empire against all sorts of monstrous filth he likes swimming, cycling and running
At the moment these Greatswords aren`t used in battle and stay on the shelf. But im planning to build a more melee focuses force. And these guys will have an essential role in it.
