Hi gentlemen. Since my 1/72 WFB army is painted, I can show them all at once, standing their ground, then in battle against the Orcs.

The Talabecland army, defending a village north of Talabheim:

Then the Orcs arrived, and the battle begun:

Great looking armies, especially, in 1/72. Thanks for the write up.

Holy Craft Paint, Craftman!!! That is some of the finest painting I've ever seen… Your game looks like a diorama. I know they're likely all plastic mini's, but I still would be very apprehensive to game with them. Not a criticism, just being honest. That quality of paint work scares me to even think about touching the figures, for fear of damaging them.

Incredible figures, terrain, etc. That is the whole package. Stunning, really. Just stunning. Thank you, for sharing. Cheers!

Thank you very much for your kind comments :)

Yes, they are plastic indeed, andI must admit that the halberds are a bit fragile, but the acrylic paint stays well on the minis, and even better if you add a layer of matte varnish. I regularly let some of the minis fall on the floor (it was an accident, I swear :)), and they get no damage.
