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.

It’s been a while, building and getting the pieces ready to paint for these guys. But, since I’ve gotten started on them, progress will be fast. This is the first batch and the other 13 bikes are on the way! Like the rest of the White Scars, there’s a mud/trench theme for the bases so I made sure to include a lot of weathering.

I changed up the jump pack on a Chaplain. I think he needed the change so the two Chaplains can be differentiated. It’s painted like the jump pack on the Emperor’s Champion but in black.

The first batch of jetbikes are done.

Like the Xiphon and Chaplains I already did, there is a lot of dirt and weathering on the bikes. They are currently in battle, in white armour, so I imagine it gets dirty. The bases further expand on my theme of these. Some stone faces are attached with chain so it looks like an excavation is going on. I think I’ll add more wood pathways for the trench works part of the theme.

The next model complete for the commission is an Ork Killbursta tank from Forgeworld. Lots of weathering all over the vehicle. It’s mostly silver paint on the top half and then lots of mud and dirt near the tracks. I made sure to put lots of dirt on the ram and make it look like the dirt is flying up the slope.
