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.

The last batch of survivors. Just have monsters and terrain to do.

This time, we have a variety of models. Fruit from the Lonely Tree, the Lonely Tree pinup, Green Armour, Leather Armour, Gorm Suit, and young and old survivors.

Just 2 battleships to go and this commission is complete.

Today, these two Kedorian cruisers are painted to the theme “shining cities in space”. In my research, I came across High Charity (Halo), The Citadel (Mass Effect), various sci-fi movies and finally Doctor Who; Galifrey. Some of these space cities were dark and brooding, but the ones that fit the “shining” part of the theme shined as if the buildings were made of chrome or gold. This is where I stopped at Galifrey. Although on a planet, Galifrey fit the “shining” aspect very well and could be translated effectively to the Kedoarian cruisers. The Kedorian battleship will also following this scheme, but will utilize contrast to a much greater degree, giving amore powerful shining effect.

These cruisers also have bands of sparkles around the rim and the side spires. I wanted to give the effect of stars and other entities reflecting off the hull of the cruisers.
