I don’t have a standing Empire army for Warhammer at the moment, but many years back I used the contents of a Battle Masters set to build the core of an Altdorf force. That army did not stand the test of time, but I always intended to keep the cannon and use it in a future project.
Since the new Empire army book came out I have been itching to issue a call to arms, and I have accumulated a few new models. I’ve decided to raise an army of Ostermark this time since I like the ostentatious colour scheme along with its bleak and forbidding homeland.
As a test run of the colour scheme I have repainted the Great Cannon. The crew is one member short – the recruitment call is out and I’ll probably get a member of the local militia unit trained up in the art of plonking iron balls down a barrel.
