Hi people

I have recently found the models below and was wondering what army in fantasy they might do well as.

I'm thinking either empire – but competitive empire lists don’t exactly make extensive use of massed foot troops......and I cant really see steam tanks fitting in a samurai army. Empire infantry also fails miserably at feeling like an army of elite individual fighters.

The other thought is high elves – but they are human. While the army might play more like how I want it to, it might look a bit odd and generally be a bit confusing.

What do people think?

I could see them working as some form of Elf; possible of the wooded variety.

Empire would be the most appropriate otherwise High Elves if you want to represent the movie style samurai and have a stronger tourney army.

They would need shields to be Men-at-Arms or Grail Reliquae Battle Pilgrims.

I don't think i could bring myself to use them as berets - ws2 samurai just seems wrong!

I guess empire could work as long as i kept the foot troops supplied with hatred and didn't use steam tanks (not that big a deal)
