How did it all end like this ?
Hum, let's go back to the past for a moment.
Today's the last day of Orctober, the month when Orcs (and their relatives: Goblins, Trolls, Uruk-hai...) try to sweep the world. In order to help them to win, painters all over the world focus on painting reinforcements for the green horde.
I was one of these painters in 2019, and completed a nice HOTT army as you can see here.
But this year, I thought it would be fair to help their opponents, and have the opportunity to display a large battle. So I chose to paint a human Empire army, inspired by Warhammer Fantasy Battle.It also was an occasion to paint historical Renaissance figures in a Fantasy frame.
The painting period started at the beginning of October and just ended yesterday - here you are the list of posts related to this project:
- episode 1: Explaining the challenge + halberdiers
- episode 2: More halberdiers
- episode 3: Artillery
- episode 4: Knights and fanatics
- episode 5: Fire power part I
- episode 6: Fire power part II
- episode 7: Army complete
Now it's time to show the different units all together. These guys represent the army of Talabecland. They are led by the Duke of Talabecland himself. Their provincial colors are red and yellow. They're ready to defend a small village in the north of Talabheim.
After a long wait, the Orcish horde was here, ready to attack. The defenders were swiftly overwhelmed...
The worst job for a Goblin:
The duke himself is trying to stop the Warg riders.
Even the birds could see how desperate this fight was.
Will Talabecland be destroyed by these countless attackers ? Has this army been painted in vain ?
Hope you like them all (even the ugly ones :-D) !
