Ratvan : Fair warning: I have a few 5th ed Grail Knights coming up soon. That might bring nostalgia levels way over the top! hahahaha Thanks for the kind words, man!

Midge913 : Welcome aboard and huge thanks for the compliments (and +rep)! That is great coming from a very talented painter like yourself!

I'm going to spend the day assembling my KoTR unit and (maybe) some Grail Knights as well. Will also add a few more Men-at-Arms so I can FINALLY field a fully assembled 2,500pt. army!

Cheers everyone!

Fantastic trebuchet Saulot! Everyting about it looks great but I think the best part is the woodpanels. They look amazing!

There are no friends in the real world, just less hostile enemies

Hello everyone!

Been a while since I last checked this log! Since that time, I have, unfortunately, done little painting for this army. I still have yet to put together my knightly units. But at least I was able to complete my Peasant Men-at-Arms unit!

Here are the last 18 men for the unit:



And all 41 Men-at-Arms with a Damsel to buff them.



I have a Trebuchet on my painting table, as well as a few test models for my KotR. I should be able to update this again in a week or so.

Until then, thanks for looking!

Cheers!

Fantastic looking unit. Very bright and clean. Unlike real peasants, but I know what you are going for. I do like the uniformity of the painting. If I paint another unit of MAs for my daughter's Brets, I will follow your lead with the two primary colors in the same locations and browns for the rest of the clothing. It makes it look more like a unit. The MAs tha I painted almost look like a rabble gathered from several units.

Can't wait to see what you do with your knights, so get to work!

I think that they turned out great man! The browns are really great in contrast to the blue and white and the whole unit just pops! Well done.

Hello everyone!

Firstly, thank you for the kind words Midge913 and KT, they are greatly appreciated!

I have another quick update for you guys again. I finished painting my second Field Trebuchet, and just like the first, it was a pain to put together! I also did some base-work for it as with the last time. No cheeky boy and cute dog though.

I also decided to use a different colour scheme for my second set of crewmen. I decided to switch out the blue areas with white. At first I was concerned that they might look too clean (even for me), but the sculpt really helped out in making them look rugged. I shaded my white with watered down Bleached Bone in all the folds. (I wish I can take better pictures! They are a little washed out from my light source).

I still lack the 2 wheel handles on the Trebuchet's sides since I missed priming them! I'll get to it when I work on my next batch of minis.

Comments would be greatly appreciated.

Here are the pics:

Cheers!

Thanks man!

I used Bleached Bone as my basecoat and work up multiple layers of Skull White. What makes it really smooth, I find, is a final layer of very thinned down Skull White. I also shaded the folds on these Peasants with thinned Bleached Bone.
