The Empire Huntsmen/Archers kit might be the best human models GW ever produced, so I treated myself to a box of them last summer. These were painted quite a while back but were only recently based (I don’t like basing at all, you see).
Realistic proportions, lack of skulls, plenty of options in the kit including a dead orc vignette – which I didn’t make use of as I want to use these models in a historical game as well. I used the heads with the fur hats, so that I can use the more normal heads among the rest of the infantry for greater variety.
These were painted up in the same manner as the rest of the landsknechts, with the exception of their surcoats. It’s a bit silly with their super colourful attire underneath, I know! No worries about camouflage though, as they will probably be used as cheap skirmish screens and charge redirectors in game. Poor sods…
That’s all for today. I have one more blog post in the pipeline for this army and then it’s temporarily on hold in favour of my usual myriad of other projects. Tah!
