Joe Flesch (Waaagh Cast!) Empire - Stirland River Patrol

posted Aug 04, 2012 02:58:01 by Waaagh_Cast
I've actually been blogging this myself on my blog and a couple other forums for about 4-5 months now, but I figured I'd group the posts and throw it here too. :)

Little background first. This army belongs to a friend who moved to New York about 5 years ago to get married. He let me borrow it and ultimately told me to sell it. Obviously I haven't sold it, but I have completely stripped and begun redoing it. It started as a hodge podge of really bad paint jobs because it was mostly purchased from eBay and 2nd hand. It also had all the state troops painted Stirland already so I stuck with it as I find the old plastic suffers when you strip it no matter what solvent you use. I did however strip everything metal and begin anew. I've re-based everything and begun construction on the display board which will be a boat. I've been working on this off and on for 3 years. Its always been a long term side project and it will likely remain such, but I do have enough to warrant seeing what others think at this point. One of the reasons I've wanted to rebuild the army instead of get rid of it is because its comprised almost exclusively of old models and I love the old stuff. So yeah, Stirland River Patrol.

14 Handgunners


40 Spearmen


Great Cannon & Hellblaster Volley Gun


Witch Hunter / Warrior Priest


The Display Board in Early Stage Construction


Fire Wizard
Shadow/Celestial Wizard
Engineer w/Hochland Long Rifle


A Watchtower/Brewhouse


24 Flagellants


Lord on Gryphon w/Lance or GW and Sheild





Von Zeppel Steam Tank
There are 14 Shields on the tank, 15 if you count the small one on the back. I painted a shield in the colors of each of the 14 provinces including those that no longer exist (Soland and Drakwald). The 13th is the colors of the Church of Sigmar and the last is the Stirland River Patrol since that's my army. I also did the rear shield in is Stirland Patrol.






Knights Panther x9 with FC.



Mortar and Crew


Warrior Priest on Warhorse

This army looks very promising. I love the basing, especially on the General on Griffon. I'm also a big fan of the old state troops. Gotta love the shields with the lion heads. What's next on the horizon for the Stirland Patrol?
The slightly less beautiful host.

Knights Panther. Not because they have a very good fluff reason to be in Stirland, but that's what I have to work with in the classic model range.

That's awesome Joe, I loved the Stank from the moment I saw it on Twitter. Great to see your Griffon also!

If you're interested, I have a rather massive collection of that same generation of empire figs, all based and cleaned but not primed or painted, that I've been considering parting with for a long while. Let me know if you're in need of fleshing your current force out. :)

I will have to keep that in mind. Also, main post updated with Knights Panther, Mortar and Crew and Ad-hock Warrior Priest on Warhorse.

It's been nearly a year since I've worked on this army. At Adepticon I picked up a handful of extra models for the army and finally decided to try and finish the army. Below you'll find pictures of the most recent progress. Click on any for larger views.

Most excitingly; I finished the display board. Well; almost. I finished the boat for the models with wood planking. I still have to build the shoreline for the Knights and Tank.
