From TomM: Age of Sigmar Reiksguard (60 pts)

This weeks entry has been about expanding my Empire force some more, in the form of a couple Reiksguard Knights (okay, you need to use the Compendium books to field them) for my Age of Sigmar force.

Now, the models are actually all GW, but the "regular" knights are from a true blast of the past: the MB Battlemasters boardgame from the mid 90s.  This game, which GW made the figures for, contained a heap of infantry and cavalry, and the Imperial looking ones have as such been drafted into my army after getting a heap of them for free from a fellow clubmember.

The Reiksguard are sporting their tradional (aka, rather boring) all metalled up colourscheme, with some reds and whites added for contrast.  Joining them on the field of battle are a Sigmarite Priest, the union champion and a standard bearer.

Pointswise, these are 6 cavalry models of 28mm scale, so that should be 60 points to my journey to reach the target.

Thanks for looking!

Nice painting Tom. I'm afraid once again I can't really comment on Age of Sigmar or any of the GW figures as I haven't a clue what I'm looking at!!
The figures do look great though, the red wings on their helmets really stand out and I do like the standard, it very imposing!!!
What's the idea behind the strange basing style?

6 x 28 cav is indeed 60 points!!!


  1. Nice work, love the provenance of those ex-MB figures.

  2. Nice, that Battlemasters box was a real treasure trove.

  3. Always nice to see some imperial cavalry!

  4. That standard is impressive!

  5. Battlemasters was the box that kept on giving. Nice to see it still at work after all these years. Well done Tom!

  6. Nice work, good to see some battle masters stuff, I've got some knocking around waiting to transform into renaissance troops!
    Best Iain

  7. Nice work, Tom! The guard does look the business! I do remember when they were the shock troops of empire fantasy! ;)
