As time goes by I continue re-basing and re-furbishing my old Warhammer Empire figures. Above are two units I decided to rehab last month.
For my Artillery pieces I wanted to unify the bases to at least add some semblance of order to the drastically different painting approaches garnered from years of collecting.
1st Up was my favorite units, the great cannons. I always liked having a sizable artillery element to rain fire on my opponent. I was less attracted to the magical side of the game as I was the wargame aspect. Thus I focused on magic items to protect me from other magic items, and brute force weapons to subdue my opponents.

|I have no idea what happened with this barrel.|
Lastly are two different approaches to the Organ Gun. The Leonardo figure is particularly nice, and I have fond memories of their usefulness back when I actually enjoyed tournaments. They threat they represented could allow you to funnel the other player to the ground of your choosing. In one particularly grand moment I had one misfire on the first shot, which results in a catastrophic volley down range...directly into the opponent's 'uber unit' ah.. good times...
