This recoil is murder!

Here was a guy that I thought I could be a bit cheeky with.  He's not quite used to handling those shootin' irons, so he doesn't know how to handle the recoil.

Hey, that's why you need to have a batch of fifty of these guys doing the whole "Second rank fire!" thing. ;-)

There are a number of kneeling poses that I have done for each squad.  I really enjoy these, because it lets me set up tint little dioramas on my bases.  I have them shooting behind walls, and even behind barrels.

Once again, the genius behind the Victoria Miniatures Highland Moss Guard!

For whatever reason, the blog website keeps tinting all of my images very red.  It's very odd, since it never did this before.  It just started the other day.  It's not the laptop, since it has done the same thing on all of them.

Anyway, gotta run!!

It takes a Saint

OK, now you know what one of those bases was for!  This will be the warlord of the army... the Living Saint.

It is a conglomeration of bits and various minis.  The main figure is an old Rackham figure.  Then there are some Canoness bits, Blood Angel, and even an Empire Fire Wizard's sword!

If you have seen the recent post showing the big 60mm base with the small mural, you can see the connection between this character and the miniature.

I had intended for something a bit different, but time concerns meant that I had to work with what was at hand.  I found a bunch of pieces as I was looking for something else, and started piecing it together!

It also had to be a playable piece, since she is supposed to baby sit the Seraphim unit.  Hopefully, she will be able to absorb the inevitable strength 6 wounds coming their way.

I think it will still be fun to paint.  The actual Seraphim unit was also constructed today, so pics of that soon!
