|He has a shield for the days in which he is used as a BSB rather than just a GS standard bearer.|
I didn't want to paint his armor just black with black clothing though, as I was afraid it would look too bland. Instead I opted for the metal armor with a heavy black wash over the whole model to darken it up. Looking at googled images of armies of Morr (such as Dave Taylor's amazing example) they're usually painted black & purple, so I opted for the purple here. I may alternate between those two colors as the primary clothing color for the uniforms of rest of the unit.

These games are supposedly marketed towards kids rather than the veteran players such as myself. Yet I can't see how they can expect a kid to pay $25-$30 on the empire BSB model, and put this together w/o rage quitting the game after breaking it, or gluing the snot out of it only to have it break anyways, etc., (and then telling all their friends about it the misery of the experience). For years they have made models where glue joints were simply mind boggling. Especially at load bearing points.
Once pinned it ought to be alright I guess. Once complete I'll have to work on a magnetized tray for this regiment just to keep this model standing up.
