Altheim Part 10: Reinhald the Swordsmith's Forge

 Time to head back to Altheim and introduce another building and it's owner. This time it's Altheim's Premier Forge, and Reinhald Strohmann, Master Swordsmith. Oh, and his hapless apprentice, Matthias...

Reinhald and Matthias about to start a hard day's work.

Araby project: The Army of the Great Sultan (so far!)

 As well as the Mad Mullah's Death Commandos and the siege cannon, I've been working on a few other units for my Araby army project, so I thought I'd post a bit of an update if you're interested. 

Here's what I've got done so far:

RR6 - Mad Mullah Acklan'd's Death Commandos

  Time for another rare (for me!) jaunt into preslotta-land, this time it's one of the early Regiments of Renown, Mad Mullah Acklan'd's Death Commandos:

As one of the very few Arabyan units ever released by Citadel, I thought I had to have a regiment of them in my Araby army, and luckily 19 of them turned up on eBay recently that I got for a very reasonable price. 

Anyway, more photos and background after the cut...

The Will of the Sultan, an Araby Siege Cannon

If you follow my blog, you'll know I'm currently working on an Araby Army list for 3rd Edition WFB. I'm working from a mixture of the Warmaster Araby army list, and Mathias Eliasson's excellent fan-made Araby army book for 8th Edition (Which is available *here*, it's well worth a read!) Although I'm deviating from both lists a bit to make the army use more gunpowder weapons. In my canon this is due to extensive trade links with Cathay where the use of such weapons is commonplace. 

As part of the list, one of the options is for a huge siege engine called a Basilica Cannon, so I thought I'd build one:
