The Greatswords

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.

Have to agree with the above👆

Awesome. I was going to leave my grestswords with my old wfb army but now I need to rethink that 😸

They look awesome.  I think in a right set up, these guys can be really good. They are cheap for an elite troop, especially when you take 30 of them. Keep em close and use the +1 to save trait to survive longer at 3+ save/ give them griffons ability +1 to hit for combat, so you are potentially looking at 61 attacks 2+/ 3+/ -1/ 1.  They can be pretty nasty 😉

You can also give them wildform with an ambermage to get them down to 2+/2+/-1/1. I think they rellay can do some work. :D
