The Beginning

Welcome to the first entry for my Free Peoples blog.

I have been working on this army since 2015. It's been a passion project of mine since first seeing the Empire army in the 8th Edition army book.

I had always wanted to start an Empire army but never though I had the painting skills to do them justice. 

In 2015 my best friend James was painting up his Bretonnian army. We reconnected (we had deployed together in the military and became good friends) after a couple of years and we got talking about Warhammer again. I had picked up the 8th Edition Empire book whilst we were deployed. I read the whole thing front to back, immersing myself in the awesome lore. After speaking to James I picked up the Empire Battalion Box and started my journey.

Unfortunately I was deployed again in mid 2015 to early 2016, missing out of the transition to Age of Sigmar. When I came back the Empire was still alive in the form of the warscrolls and was not yet referred to as the Free Peoples faction (except in the keywords on the Empire Warscrolls). I spent most of this time hobbying, including re-basing the few miniatures I had completed prior to deploying (a single unit of twenty Averland halberdiers).  

Over the next 3 years I built up my army to what it is today. I vowed not to play the army at an event until I had 2000 points of playable Free Peoples painted. Below is the photos of my army at Cancon 2019, the first time I had taken the fully painted army to an event.

The point of this blog will be to keep track of my hobby and gaming progress with this army that I love so much.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the content.

It`s good to see other folks putting love into the Free People! Keep on with the great work. The painting is amazing. I´m looking forward to see more deailed shoots of all the units.

Yes-yes, more-more man-thing to work-die in Slave pits, better suited for-for labor work then-then most hated storm-things.

more-more fun opponent than-than poster-things.

Yes-yes let droves of things and clanrats die-Die.

(in other words let the man-things rise again, no need for undying thousand sons themed flesh crafted man-things.

we are in dire need of story’s about the common people of the realms as well as good rules for them.)
