Oh man this was alotta work. Painting 30 crossbowmen was a mentally demanding task. But I needed them for my first tournament. So there was the motivation you propably know. In the end I had enough time to play around with the standardbearer and could push myself alot further with painting freehands.
I`m very proud of the standardbearer. I think this freehand turned out really well
The painting is a copy of the Vasa. A swedish warships witch sank on it`s first journey

I really like those guys and play them every game. Buffed with Hold the Line! they perform exceptionally well and kill nearly everything.
