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.

Knock, knock. Who’s there? A new Bretonnia army.

For myself, I had a friend print out about 1000 points of 10mm Warmaster Bretonnians designed by Forest Dragon and I started with the Trebuchet. I cut out a base using 0.5mm styrene and put in the crew’s positions before painting and flocking. I went with a pale brown wood colour and added some bushes.

This is looking great already and I can’t wait to show off my ideas for the rest of the army.

Harlequin for scale.

The next batch is done. I’ll be doing everyone’s arms later. They are a mix of pistols and close combat weapons.

So many diamonds.

The first batch of 5 Harlequin troupers are done sans weapons. They have very dynamic poses, many of them are leaning quite heavily. Makes it look like they’re leaping and dancing I suppose.

I will be on vacation this week and will be returning Oct 2. This was a before-leaving update on the commission.

The next step in the Shadowsun squad. Commander Shadowsun herself and drones. I increased the brightness of the purple and put a bit more red into the trim. Since this is the reverse scheme of the rest of the army, the Broadside is going to be mainly orange with purple trim.

This is my first time painting her new scuplt. And I must say, Shadowsun has come a long way from her pewter origins. She looks so cool!

We have a small commission to change things up between doing many dozens of diamonds. Here is a WIP of Commander Shadowsun and her drone buddies. The regular scheme for this army is ochre/orange as the primary and purple as the secondary. But, as is tradition with Sahdowsun, I am doing the purple as the primary colour instead.

At first, I was going for a flatter ochre colour, but the shading lended itself to a more NMM look, so I went with it. I think I will work on the purple highlighting a bit more. I want to brighten it further so the blue shading I did on her isn’t so lost.

Team Yankee Soviets – WW3 Katyushas September 10, 2021

I first got into Soviets because my favourite vehicle in WW2 is the Katyusha Rocket launcher. We decided to get into Team Yankee instead of Flames of War because of the more modern units and strategies. I was very happy to find that the BM-21 Hail Rocket Battery was a unit and they look like a modern version of the Katyusha.

Like the rest of the vehicles in my army, I gave them a winter grasslands camo scheme with snow flock in patches all over. I expressly avoided putting snow close to the guns because I thought they’ve been firing and any snow would immediately evaporate or get shaken off.

I have finally got around to doing group shots of the completed jetbikes.

The past few stream sessions I was working on other stuff, but I haven’t forgotten about the Harlequins. I did all the bases for the infantry. The characters will be done separately, but the regular troupers get to be part of this batch.

I am pleased to show off my first of three converted Scourgerunner Chariots, finally painted. Some time ago, I put together three of these as my rendition of the Cities of Sigmar Scourgerunner Chariot. I game terms, the chariot is supposed to be a Drukhari/Dark Elf/Privateer model, but I made mine aesthetically human. Specifically, in my Middenheim blue/white colour scheme and Freeguild design.

For the other non-human units in the army book, what kind of scratchbuilds or conversions can I do on the monsters that could follow the Freeguild/human aesthetic? I’m looking into possible clockwork/steampunk works or several guardsmen in hydra hide for my initial ideas.
