The first army I ever finished was my empire army and to be honest I've always held a bit of a soft spot for them. I've wanted to build my army afresh for a while now and thought I'd go down the avenue of pirates, brigands, and ruffians. As such one of my all time favourite models was the Bird Men of Catrazza. These however are like rocking horse @#*^ now. So in time honoured fashion I thought I'd have a crack and build my own.
