SUPER! Did those knights come with the woves? If not that was a bloody brilliant idea, well done Sir!

These guys have a medievalish look about them with the color scheme you choose.

+Rep, wolves are my fav!

Thanks for the comments!

The wolves are the new fenrisian wolves for 40K, but I love how animated the models are. I picked the two that looked like they were running to make them fit in more.

I wanted 10 knights, but I didn't want to buy two boxes or waste money bitzing them out. I thought this would be something to make my army mine. I am glad ya'll like them.

They look great! especially love the wolves, they add that little extra to unit keep up the good work, really considering starting an Empire/Wood Elf/High Elf/Bretoni army now

Thanks Chris!

All four armies have nice models to paint. The Brets get a little tedious, but once you get painting horses down it will go faster. The High elves have so many cool models and all the baners and sheilds give you a place to try free hand stuff. The Woodsies are fiddly little modles but I think they paint up nicely. As for the Empire, well, the core mdels have some many little bitz and bobs on them they are kind annoying to paint. On the halberds I painted for last months challenge I went with an Army painter spreay and I swear by tat now. Getting the whole uni base-coated quickly made all the little stuff seem not so bad. YMMV.

Thansk for looking!

Another update finally... I have been remodeling a half-bath in my house and had a plumbing misadventure that took some solving, but I am done now and got some Wood Elf models finished and the May challenge model done.

The Wood Elf Glade Riders. These got a weird finish with the spray initially so I had to strip them and start over.

Group shot:



Glade Rider commander:



A unit of six scouts:





And for May's Army challenge I painted a Great Cannon. I am calling it Wyrm Slayer to get my son going. He wants his Dragon Knights on Dragons, so I figured I twist him up a bit.

Based up:





The cannon:


The crew:




Thanks for looking, and critique away!

The eyes is the only thing i can see missing (but i tend to not bother with mine either )

Also you could make the gunners more sooty but i think they look amazing the way the are, grimy

Hellados, help me with sooty. That is what I was going for but ended up grimy like you said. Do you have any tips that might help?

Oh, I never paint eyes. Too ham-handed and shaky to even try...

A comparison shot between the first and second batch:


And a couple pics of the whole 30 man unit:
