Mordheim project, part 3: Leopold's Leopard Company

Leopold's Leopard Company comes from Canada and now settles in Mordheim ruins... 
I love these models, in particular the champion and the standard bearer, so I start from them:

I buy five Leopards to give them a second chance. Leopold's right arm was missing and the standard bearer was badly converted in a pikeman.
I planned to give a two-handed sword to the last one, but then I restored the pike. A sabre to the champion and then a gladius, that's fine because this Tilean dogs of war look like the Ancient Roman Signifers.
Metal gloves and greaves increase the armour and a leopard face decorates the elbow guard.
PS: I haven't forgotten the Bretonnian band. I considered to use a plastic man-at-arms to make an Errant Knight on foot, but I discarded the idea.

Mordheim project, part 2: restored ruins

From photo-box battle scene to Mordheim ruins. Yeah, the following was the 40k battle scene I took to Italian Golden Demon, judged and discarded by Alan Merrett...
It was a good photo box but useless for gaming; it was a fantasy enviroment, it had to be exploited for a fantasy game and nothing is better than Mordheim.

Now I have two distinct ruined buildings:

Before painting:
I need other sceneries to fill a table, two are not enough. I plan to build a ruined tower, the headquarters of my my Bretonnian band.  
PS: I don't forget selfmade Bretonnia Questing Knight on foot. This is an old pic, but you can see that now he looks like lighter without his helm, helm kept by his Squire:
