I have finally started to work on that Empire army box, starting with the general.
This box actually has enough parts for a general and a captain/standard bearer, one of which is mounted. There are, of course, numerous choices for weapons and other 'bitz' included in the box.
Weapon choices include: sword, lance, mace, two-handed hammer, and a pistol.
Some of the 'bitz' are a bit strange. The standard seems to be the Grim Reaper with wings and a hammer; I suppose this fits in with the Empire background though. And, on the sprue on the right in the pic, is some sort of mechanical cherub carrying a banner and wearing a skull mask!
The horse has some nice detail:
The barding has a lot of detail, fitting in with the Empire background. On top of the horse's head, though, is another skeleton with a hammer. This is going to be removed, and with the mini being plastic, it will be an easy conversion.
