Default Haskanael's stormcasts - Meteoric knights

so yeah, here is the start of my own stormhost, the Meteoric Knights.


not much background fluff. but once I learn more about the Stormcast eternals and the stormhosts I might start on that as well.

The colour scheme is very "reichsgard knight" looking. Admittedly I know practically nothing about age of sigmar, are these guys the equivalent of the empire

from what I understand thus far the humans of the old world are scattered in lose tribes/communities for as far as they are still alive.
the stormcast eternals are basicly "worthy" humans who Sigmar has wisked away from the battlefield since his godhood started up to the endtime. to reforge them into the stormcasts. a bit of a mix of space marines and the fallen from valhalla in norse mythology.

TL;DR I don't honestly know. but personaly I don't think they are.

They look very noble and bright, how appropriate for the new age!

About your models, they remind me of roman legionnaires...

Digging it. The only thing I might suggest it trying to 'aim' a bit more with the washes. They can add detail or obscure it by pooling just as easily. An example I see of pooling is on the leftmost Eternal's shield along the top. The black looks off around the details.

Keep up the good work though, I may just be unresearched on the topic but you have a unique look going on here

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.
