Thank you. I am always very critical when it comes to my freehand skills, so praise is doubly welcome :-)

Do you have to point out that time span...? ;-)

Re: Old Worlder Ally Contingent

This model took me some time but I finished it today. With the flag I cheated
a bit (it was scanned and printed from an old White Dwarf), but the rest of the
model is painted completely freehand. I would have liked to get the lion heads
especially more consistent, but this is the best I can manage...

Anybody having an idea, based on the standard bearer, what the unit champion
will look like? And where the paint scheme of the standard bearer comes from?

Re: Old Worlder Ally Contingent

The unit leader is done as well. I am not really happy with how all the fleurs turned out, but what you see here is the umpteenth try...

Re: Old Worlder Ally Contingent

I wouldn't worry too much about the Fleurs their perfectly formed in my opinion given the amount of space you're trying to fit them all in, try to paint fewer - you're more than likely being particularly hard on yourself after painting them numerous times and brain rot set-in. :lol:

For free-hand work your hitting the mark fairly well - as the basket weave is easy on the eye. As for your unit champion use the banner as inspiration, but don't quarter, half, that 'll give you more room to paint the detail on the model.

Thank you for the tip Paul, I have twelve more, so plenty of room to apply it :-) Also thank you for easing my mind on the free hand topic.

Re: Old Worlder Ally Contingent

The unit based on the historical models is done, the last part was to add static grass to the bases.

Re: Old Worlder Ally Contingent

I love the standard bearer. That white dwarf article where they showed theirs is one of my all time favorite articles, and yours just makes me happy as a result!
