You could try to pick out the leaves on the Eternal guard a bit more, as it is now you barely see them on the cloaks. Otherwise its good work

Thanks, I wasn't sure how much they would show up, and obviously not enough!

If I had done them I would have startded with a basecoat of dark angels green, and then work it up to my desired colour, leaving a bit of the dark green showing in the middle and the connecting lines between the cloak and leaf. That would make it a bit more defined I think

I could hit the vine/leaf area with Thraka green again, full strngth with a detail brush, then another highlight on the the leaves when that is dry.

I think that would do the trick

I haven't been around much lately, non-stop water in the basement, endless rain (too much humidity to prime), taking car of a buddies dog (a 40 minute round trip twice a day) and a pinewood derby have kept me from any painting at all.

Here is what I finished:
Bases are finished.


Different angle

@ Meldon- I forgot to take pics of the repainted vine detail, next time if I remember...

WIp Bretonnian lord and horse.






And what kept me really busy, Derby cars for the kids.

I've got a command group and two more EG to fill out a unit of 15 for now. They will probably aquire another five eventually for a good round five by four unit.

B asement is finally dry, and I had a day or two of semi-decent weather to get a few minis primed.

While I was waiting, this is what I got started on.



Which progressed to this:

[/IMG]

And then this:


For scale:


This is my first try at Hirst Arts casts. I was very pleased with how they went together and the detail. I am waiting for some more casts to finish the stairs before I make a stab at painting it. I found a site that sells the plaster casts in quantity, which saved me from having to learn how to cast! Great stuff.

I did finish the Bret lord, minus the flocking. I need a matte varnish to brush over the decals to hide the edges better before I hit the model with spray matte and finish the flocking. My daughter requested unicorns despite the dragons on the men-at-arms. Never try an explain heraldry to a seven-year-old...

A tiny painted unicorn...


Decals:




And the next batch or archers all primed:


I am going to paint samll batches of Brets, High Elves and Wood Elves. I have put one coat of fleshtone on all the skin, but that's it so far.

KT out
