Citizen CZ28

Another citizen from the MM62 range, another weird sculpt (she doesn't have any neck!). Not particularly happy with the back of the model, but the turkey was quite fun to paint.

Still one citizen to paint, and then the food & supply cart...

Citizen CZ14

After the cook and the barmaid, the bartender! You have already met his brother, jailer of St Quintus prison.

After a hard day hacking gobbos and mutants, it's a relief to see warmly faces (hem) welcoming you at the food & supply wagon:

Citizen CZ21

A cook from Cathay. Uneasy to place in an imperial army, but I have to include all the Marauder Miniatures models. Like the barmaid, he will follow the baggage train.

Citizen CZ24

First feminine (well, kind of) model of the army, this barmaid will be part of the baggage train. Her sister, holding a broom, will follow soon.

Citizen CZ20

I've started this model during my last holidays, when I ran out of bergjaegers to paint. This is a Marauder MM62 model, referenced as CZ20. Like most of the miniatures from this range, the proportions are slightly odd, and I assume that Trish Morrison is their designer.

I've spent some time on the drum, trying to find a proper design: cross, sun, stains, nothing worked until I remembered Pandera's comment saying that my painting style lacked "oldhammerness". I've then tried the good old red & grinning face... and it worked: sad face for the beaten side, and smiling face for the rear one :)

I don't know yet which unit this musician will join. We'll see.

Something different

Years ago, I proposed to paint a few models for the RoboRally boardgame of a friend of mine. Now he can play with ONE model :)

Bergjaeger #10: the unreleased hunter

At last! The tenth forester is finally done: this is an unreleased Marauder Miniatures warrior I bought last year, and to be honest, I've had some difficulties to find a proper color scheme. In addition, as I didn't want to cut the slotta bar off, I couldn't make the model stand on a rock, which makes him slightly smaller than the other miniatures he's supposed to lead... Anyway.

And here is the completed regiment:

Considering the hornblower as a musician and the druid/magic user as a staff bearer, this unit is 156 points worth, which means that my imperial force finally reaches the 1000-point threshold. Yippee!

It is time to unlock a first stretch goal... an element of the baggage train :)
