Re: Old Worlder Ally Contingent

The next unit(s) will be Bretonnian Knights. The models are all Black Tree, a mix of their 100 Years War and Fantasy ranges. The bases are again from Product for Wargamers.

The knights are all prepared for basecoating. I exchanged the shields from the fantasy models for the same as from the historical knights, to have a unifying element.

Most lances were good to work with, slight bends could be eased out. From some of the historical models though, the lances were very bend and quite thin - looking at them askew bend them again. So I decided to replace them with brass rod.

The horses are done, as well as the backside if the shields. Next, I will paint individual riders, complete with horse barding and shield front.

Wood grain is a really nice effect- how is that done?

Cracking stuff as always, your use of Historical bits is making it a true army on a budget :)

I used the same wood colors as on the other models.

  • 70.872 Chocolate Brown
  • 70.879 Green Brown
  • 70.821 German C. Beige WWII

My usual approach is to basecoat with chocolate brown, paint broad stripes with green brown and then thin stripes with beige inside the green brown - breaking the pattern here and there so it looks more organic.

With the shields I also basecoated in chocolate brown. I then used black ink between the boards of the shield. This was followed by a drybrush of green brown. Finally, I painted thin highlights of beige following the sculpted grain.

Voila :D

The first knight is done. Anyone having some spare free hand painting talent you would be willing to part with...?
