Having recently spent most of my painting time on marines and Eldar, I felt like painting something 'different' yesterday. Given the near continuous snow flurries over the course of the weekend, I considered painting the Grymn and their snow colored armor. However with my recent purchase of That Swine from Altdorf (see my previous post), I decided to paint some Empire minis.
Like the title says: Something useless.
I still have no real desire to play WHFB, especially with Matt Fucking Ward having written the latest Daemon army book. I would imagine that he just broke 8th ed WHFB to the level that the daemons did in 7th ed., because, you know...he has no concept of balance.
Regardless, I do like my Stirlanders and so I painted the trio above up yesterday. Nothing spectacular, but then again, it is Stirland, lol. Perhaps one day we'll get all of the local Empire armies together to give 8th ed a go, but that's not on anyone's agenda for the foreseeable future. That or I could use them in another Mordheim warband and just hope that they don't suck as much as my previous Stirland warband did.
Above is my archer regiment as a whole, and arrayed in their proper skirmish formation. With the exception of my general's pistol, and engineer Nick Nolte's blunderbuss, they represent the entirety of the ranged 'firepower' (stop laughing) of my Stirland army.
