I forgot to take pictures of these when I finished the first half. Then I finished another 5 and it became 10 minis. I will be switching to Harlequins from here for a bit.

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.

Hot on the heels of the Normandy, I start the next project, Aeldari. This is a mix of Striking Scorpions and Howling Banshees. A spin off of the Harlequins I just finished. I started this off with the first 5 Striking Scorpions.

This time, we have a very saturated scheme. All the colours, even the golds, are very vibrant, almost to the point of a comic book kind of scheme. I have not painting gold without my standard silver highlight in a very long time. Just letting different golds highlight each other makes them pop in such a natural and clean way. I think without the full saturation of the other colours, letting the golds stay gold wouldn’t work as well. This is going to be a very pretty number of Aspect Warriors.

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.

Just wanted to show off what the army is looking like so far. The infantry is done, so next is the knights and light cavalry. The painted models so far are 3 units of Men-at-arms, a trebuchet, and 2 stands of heroes.

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.

While waiting for coats of Mod Podge to dry for the Normandy model, I got to painting my Bretonnians. I finished a stand of knights and a unit of Men-at-arms in an alternative colour scheme.

The banner designs are freehand. I thought about making stencils, but I’m doing different designs on each flag, so I don’t see it being too useful. I’m going for a common colour scheme between units that I would thematically keep together as a brigade, then have different schemes for different brigades.
