A small update on the 100 Kingdoms. 2 models done for the Crossbows. It just leaves 4 more minis to complete a regiment, plus the stands.

This is a very exciting piece to show off my progress on. I carefully filled in and sanded out a center hole in a normal stand to make a mold of what I will be using for character stands in this army. I hand laid the bricks on this and magnetized the quadrants. Why do this you ask? To attach tiny furniture.

In Conquest: The Last Argument of Kings, the characters get their own stands like the unit they are attached to, but they can be upgraded with a retinue instead of taking on the models from the unit the have been embedded with. Some people put them in a regular base as if they were part of the unit, some people make display bases. I am making tiny furniture that represents the retinue that I can add or take off as needed. The first pieces I have done are a tiny table and a weapons rack. The table is going to have a map on it.

I also decided to go a bit further and try my hand at NMM, after a very long time not practicing it. I think my blends still hold up and the lighting is pretty good, but I am still encountering the issue of colour. I am never sure what I want to add to get the tone I am looking for. I want to go for the reddish brass I have for the rest of my army, but right not it’s pretty much gold. I think I need more orange. So far, i just have most of the highlights, the shading hasn’t been touched yet.

Para Bellum Conquest: Hundred Kingdoms – Household Knight Sir Galahad October 14, 2021

In preparation for a game I had over the long weekend, I finally made the time to base a bunch of my army and painted this Household Knight.

The scheme for my Hundred Kingdoms army is Knights of the Blazing Sun from old warhammer fantasy. So, bronze armour with yellow and black clothing and sun motifs. I added the red and white stripes on the shield as a nod to Sir Galahad colors. I plan to paint a knight after each knight of the round table.

Like my Noble Lord, I have this knight galloping through water. I tried to make it look like running water and move it with the horse hooves. I want to make more kinds of cavalry bases. Maybe some with brick or a riverbed.

Finally finished my first full unit for this army. 6 stands of Men-at-arms marching along a brick road, trampling a small flower bed. No mercy when one is parade ready.

The command stand consists of the leader, banner, and a couple of soldiers with an alternate shield design.

My army leader is done. The Noble Lord on horseback. I plan on getting one on foot too.

Going with my promenade theme, my cavalry will actually be galloping through water, like the Noble Lord. I’ve also done a tutorial for this guy!

Finally starting to get started on these guys. Of course, I have a soft spot for the lowly humans in almost every game system. Bonus points if they are religious zealots and have access to fire or cool armour. I am not sure about the fire yet, but there are warrior priests and dudes in cool armour. Not these soldiers though.

These are the first stands of my Men-at-Arms. I had made the bases using clay or plasticard blocks, then I casted them in resin. I kept the masters, so the bases you see these buys on are the copies. It’s also a theme. I tried to make it look like a brick promenade they are marching/charging down. I wanted some variety, so I added some dirt patched and damage. The abrupt stop on the one side is actually going to be a water feature that my cavalry will be galloping through.

The scheme is inspired from the Knights of the Blazing Sun in Warhammer Fantasy, or bees.

Super excited to get my first game in.
