So, it's been a bit of a dry spell on the painting front, as summer tends to get in the way of sitting inside all day and painting, but I've finally finished a small(ish) warband project I've been working on occasionally for a while now.
This time it's another project tangentially related to my Altheim project. Altheim is based in Nordland, and so these guys are a small mercenary warband based in Nordland, the D'oberoc Company

The D'Oberoc Company are led by the D'Oberoc brothers, Lando and Till, a pair of displaced minor nobles. They operate in Nordland, primarily being hired by cities such as Altheim to keep the roads free of bandits and other, more dangerous problems.
After losing their ancestral lands several generations ago due to a nefarious plot, the D'Oberoc family ended up residing in their small mansion in Altheim, and have to earn their living these days by running a mercenary company.
To help them in their work, the D'Oberocs have retained the services of a wizard, Johann Dei. Johann was a former tutor of the D'Oberocs, who maintained his friendship with them and accompanies them in their work.
As well as his magical powers, he has a flying 'Mechanical Contrivance' to help him. The result of his own magical powers combined with dwarvish engineering, it can fly high above the Nordland forests and allows him to see through its 'eyes'. This allows the company to sneak up on any potential bandit camps without them knowing.
The other unit are Till's Swordsmen. Armed with a hand weapon and a company supplied shield, they make up the veterans of the company, and are tasked with protecting the company colours.
As well as their two units of militia, they also have the help of 'The Twins', consisting of Dale, a former shepherd and Chep, an ogre.
