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.

I got around to finishing the last stand for my first regiment of Knights. Red and white for this. I’ll be trying other colours for the other units of Knights.

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 final unit of Men-at-Arms is done for my first 1000 points of army that has been printed. There will eventually be brigades worth of men-at-arms, but for now we will continue on painting knights.

This third unit I decided on a different colour scheme, yellow and turquoise. It’s definitely a different scheme than what I have done on many other models, including Harlequins. Turquoise being an uncommon colour in my repertoire.

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.

Finished a bit more of the Warmaster Bretonnians.

The Green Knight hero is accompanied by a winged hussar from Pendraken. I went for the ethereal green like in total war warhammer and gave a bit of a glow to the Green Knight. I painted the Hussar in the traditional red scheme with a leopard pelt. I also got these scale paper Polish flags and attached one. I think the theme is starting to come together.

The first stand of men-at-arms is done. I plan on doing different cloth colors for different regiments, but this one will be in Polish red and white.

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.

These last ten Seekers complete the squad and the last of the White Scars. What a journey!

This was a nice, large project featuring a variety of figures and lots of unique bits. I got to paint Horus Heresy vehicles, flyers, and a completely themed Space Marine army that I got to see through from start to end. And let’s not forget the Orks and Mechanicum who got some love in this commission as well.

The next commission is Harelquins and their diamond patterns.

Update: all the Destroyers now have at least a pair of grenades. Some are painted like the Rad grenades a couple Seekers have.

A couple of fine looking Leviathan Dreadnoughts are done! These particular vehicles, like the Xiphons, get some simple tribal markings all over the hull. Naturally, I also cover it all up in weathering. However, I decided to try something new this time and one of the Dreadnoughts doesn’t have as much mud splattering as the other.

Narratively, I think the dirtier Leviathan is piloted by a Space Marine who preferred to frolic in mud more than the cleaner one. Or maybe the dirtier one just happens to be further ahead in the chaos during this battle in the trenches and mud.

Lastly, there is a small update on the Apothecaries. I repainted the loincloths red instead of the cool blue.

I did a batch of these with pointy claws in the last Mechanicum commission and now more are needed, but with power paws. Hazard yellow with black accents and a good amount of iron and brass. You can tell they’ve gone to work already due to the blood splatters. I’m told a squad of these are a terror on the battlefield.

For the first time in forever, I have recorded my painting on one of the Ursarax. Over the next little while, I will be editing that video and posting it on Youtube. Hopefully, my new desk setup and lighting work out so the footage is usable.
