Oldhammer Empire Reiksguard

I have had these old Empire Reiksguard Knights for…er…a few years. Probably since about 1992, along with a small pile of other Empire models waiting to be given some love and attention.

With the release of Oathmark, and the fact that we are all stuck without any games being played, I have been given the time to get some of these old models built and painted.

I thought these would not take long to make, after all, a body and some legs. Stick them together, what could possibly go wrong.

Well, it seems that the body and the legs do not line up very well, the sash on the models left fouls on the legs and the lance fouls on the knee. When lined up correctly, there is a gap of about 2mm at the waist.

Is it too late to complain to Games Workshop? Only by about 28 years…

One option was to trim bits of lead off the legs and the torso until they fitted. I tried one, but it was a pain. So I have added a thin slither of plastic between the torso and the legs and it seems to have worked. I now need to undercoat them in the next few days.
