Warhammer Handgunners

"Rank on rank they stood, presenting to the enemy the arms of Nuln and the roaring cry of the gun-lines."

This model is intended for use in warhammer maps, but I imagine given the flexability of a handgunner, it can find a place in almost any medieval-renaissance or warcraft themed map.

Uses in-game textures.

Low filesize, human rifleman, excellent animations with that reload.
Screams "Steady... Aim... Fire!"
There's nothing bad about this, though I'd love to see a version of it with a tricorn or leather cap.

That is news to me, I was under the impression that while the rest of the Empire had access to basic firearms, Nuln produced the highest quality ones due to their association with dwarves.

I suppose the only excuse for the lack of repeater handguns is the sort of lame "Well everyone can use it now" thing - BUT - I also intend to make either pistolier cavalry or repeater cavalry to finish off the Reikland model set.

Ideally I'd like to make some night goblins and chaos, but I'll need a good selection of 3 units before I go ahead on those projects.

I think I might remove the fin on his helmet, while it is warcrafty, it doesn't match with the bascinet of the models I was using for reference much. (Though, they were wearing barbute helmets)

You should remove that "spyglass" on top of the gun. It looks too futuristic for 16th century. Even those tabletop models don't have them.
