I forgot that I didn’t post these pictures earlier, I had finished these a couple weeks ago.

First, we have 3 of the heroes. A couple Troupe Masters and a Death Jester. Next are the accessories. 3 turrets for Star Weavers are done as well as the weapons and windows. I wanted the windows to look like they are shielded or holographic so I added a bright blue glow to the top. I think it makes it look like the window is being projected out. I have also finished painting a bunch of hands and arms that were magnetized. I just need to figure out who can have what weapons.

The Broadside and accompanying drones are now done. His primary weapons are magnetized and painted.

I thought I did this scheme in a clever way. The ochre colour I have is a little too yellow for me and all my oranges are too orange. I ended up painting it all in the ochre colour and then glazing the whole area in transparent orange. That way, the orange warms up the ochre to the tone I was looking for. The highlights I kept as bright yellow to hopefully convey the hard material of the battlesuit.

The shield drones also follow a similar scheme. I also gave their midsection a bit of a glow as if they are radiating their shield auras.

I’ve got most of the way on the Broadside and drones. As mentioned before, the scheme is going to be the reverse scheme to Commander Shadowsun. Where she was painted mostly purple with orange as the secondary colour, the Broadside is painted orange with purple as the secondary.

When I’m done the rear dial and the shield drones, I do want to add a bit of blue glow effects around their pale blue parts.

This has been sitting on the back burner for a bit while I was focusing on the Harlequins, but I finally did get around to magnetizing it. Just the main armaments are have magnets so it can switch between the railgun and heavy missile system.

The final 13 troupers are now done and they do sure look happy to be dancing around. Most of then still need their arms which are being worked on. With these done, all that’s left to do are the characters and some turrets for the vehicles. I can see the end!

A second Men-at-Arms stand and another hero stand.

I just need to finish a command strip of the infantry and I’ll have a finished regiment! This regiment will have Polish red/white colours, but my other units will have different schemes.

The second hero stand that is complete is a hero with a banner. She is accompanied by a Winged Hussar with his own flag. I think this time, the two minis aren’t as obvious in their different scales as with the Green Knight. My headcannon says the cloth over the hero’s horse is pretty thick and makes the horse bulky.

I gotta say, I was skeptical on the paper flag print out, but having it attached and together with the other painted minis, I think it really comes together. My general is going to have even larger flags, so I hope their more intricate design goes with the rest of the army well.

This time, I didn’t take pictures by the time I finished another batch. So this time, I have 10 minis to show off.

I think this is now 15 Harlequins pretty much done. They just need their arms.

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.
