They look great but I can´t really make out what the wording on the banner.. The picture is a bit to bright.. But as far as the models go, great work

Thanks Meldon.

The scroll says "ulric" as these boys are keen on the god of the north over sigmar.

Some more awesome Halberdiers, they blend in really well with the rest of your unit - keep up the good work

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!
Thanks for the reply, I've just bought myself some Knights of the Realm, and I'll be drawing inspiration from this thread (although not necessarily pink and purple), and I hope mine look as good as yours

Thanks for the compliment. I don't paint half as well as many of the Heretics, but I think my models are a good gaming standard. I like washes alot, and use them on pretty much every color. For flesh, leather and even wood I use Vallejo's Sepia Ink, possibly my favorite wash/ink. It shades and darkens and self-highlights and makes me look like a better painter than I am!

Finished another unit for the empire. Summer has not been good to my painting and such. I am getting some models ready to start (HE Bolt thrower, Bret knights) but I have had so little time to paint and August is pretty much out... BUT- I got ten handgunners done for the Army challenge.

I was aiming for twenty but had some primer issues. A nearly full can of Army painter UM Blue ran out of propellant . Second can to do that to me. Any solutions Heretics? I like the primer because it does speed up my Empire painting, but losing a $12 can of paint pisses me off.

Here they be:

Hey Kjell,

Swell looking unit of handgunners mate! Maybe a little less flock though as it seems to overwelm their base. As for the primer issue, well I moved away from cans along time ago and highly recommend an airbrush. More bang for your buck and last ALOT longer.

One last thing, have you tried doing the eyes or thought about doing them? I think it will help add alot more character to your models, nonetheless, keep up the good work!

Regards,
DoE

DoE,
Yeah, I get a little crazy with basing materials. It be even worse if I ever get the urge to put static grass on too! Are you talking specifically the flock, or the clump foliage?

As to eyes, well, I don't have the patience or skill to pull it off. I might try the horses, but for the men, I don't want to end up with a bunch of surprised dudes. Maybe sometime down the road when my skils get better or I figure out how to steady my hand.

I want an airbrush. Bad. I just need to stop buying models for a couple months and put my hobby cash towards one. I know I would get tons of use out it, espcially for Heer camo for my Flames of War armies.

What primer do you use? I was using the AP colors to put prime and put the clothing color down to speed up my incredibly slow painting. I could priem and base coat easily with an airbrush and not be limited to AP sprays.

Thanks for the comments!

Just finished a pair of mages for the army painter challenge.

Pasty look, all washed out...


Regular look:


Celestial wizard:











A Bright wizard:










The OSL work on the Celestial dude is less than stellar. I need practice on that technique, and will probably revisit that model eventually. The fire on the other guy is my firat real try on fire as well. Too many new things? Probably.

Anyways, critque away!

Another update. I finished a unit of Nuln gunners to support the boys in blue. Somehow the Baron found some spare coin to hire these guys. Enjoy and comments welcome!
