About this deal

Since the time of Sigmar, the Empire has maintained armies of professional soldiers who defend the Emperor s lands. Drawn by love of their homeland or the promise of three meals a day, there are many men willing to risk life and limb in the State Regiments of the Empire. However since the GW kit is limited for torsos but the Perry kit is not, I can add two more bodies to the Perry band by adding a command group but the GW kit is stuck at 10 regardless.

There are exceptions to this, of course, such as the Carroburg Greatswords (an infamously hard-bitten regiment who wear blood red uniforms despite hailing from the Reikland) [1a] [3a], the Death's Heads of the Ostermark [1a] [3a], the Scarlet Guard of Stirland [1a] [3a], or the Hochland Blackshields. These troops can be trained quickly, especially in emergencies, and can replace casualties without upheaval.

In times of peace, troops are paid a small retainer and are expected to train in their own time, meet up a few times each year to drill, and be ready to mobilise at short notice. No self-respecting soldier would steal from their comrades, but this rarely extends to soldiers of rival regiments or the possessions of the dead. What I am seeing here is that the number one issue with using heroic scale alongside true scale is the bloated weapon size of the heroics.These comprise Pistoliers, who are light cavalry recruited from the young sons of the landed nobility of the state, and Greatswords. They are trained to hold the line within a thicket of spear-points, providing strong defensive capabilities to Imperial armies. Because of the expense, only the wealthiest and most ambitious nobles or the largest cities can keep a regiment together permanently.

Yep, you heard right - I think that with the uniform colours added for your fav province these figures are great! torsos have brigandines and full plate leg armour which I would have trouble seeing as anything less than heavy armour. An added bonus for all the extra arms you get in the kit is that Forgeworld have actually released a kit that enables you to make use of them – Mannan’s Blades. Most of the Perry heads are helmeted in contrast to the GW kit where the heads are mostly wearing hats. I have applied some varnish to the dowel to waterproof it, and then I have added some texture to the bases.The GW kit in comparison was fairly horrible for thick mould lines, which were hard to ignore and not so very easy to remove. They care about compliance with the laws and in times of war they are the main forces of the Empire.

Early Renaissance warfare did not consist of armies of Landsknecht wailing on each other to decide which Landsknecht army was the best. For all the pageantry, chivalry, and glorious tales of battle told in the Old World, when it comes down to it, the Empire's wars are won by the rank-and-file, the footslogger.And to the point of them looking like they only wear PJ's, its not true, the arms and bodies have enough armor and extra detail to disprove that, not to mention that somewhere along the lines people got our modern professional armies and the way they are equiped confused with historical armies. More exclusive regiments, such as archers and Greatswords, might already possess their specialist equipment and abilities when recruited. Obviously there are many variations on this tactic, but all rely upon the principle of mutually supporting units. State Troops are paid to serve as full-time, professional soldiers, ready in their barracks at all times to drive back and battle the enemies of Mankind. The kit also has a brilliant variety of heads, bodies, shields and weapons allowing for lots of variation.
