Evil Dave's Flouncy Shirt Brigade

Postby Evil Dave » Wed May 04, 2016 8:20 am

Taking a break from Wrath of Kings for the month to participate in the May 2016 Tale of Warmaster Painters. I was planning on doing a Warmaster army last year before WoK came out and I subsequently started painting an army for it. The plan was Ogres, but for the Tale I thought painting up some of my Warmonger Miniatures for the store would be a better use of the time.

I committed to painting a unit of Landsknechte Zweihänder and Pikeniere (Great Swords and Pikemen). These will be red and yellow quartered. I finished up the skin and armor this week and moved on to the yellow. These guys got a wash too, I have yet to do that with the Pikemen. I think I'll base and wash the red first too before moving on to the main color and highlights.

Thanks SRM.

Work continues on the landsknechte for me. I finished the yellow this week and gave the red a basecoat and a wash. After the red's done I still have to do: socks, shoes/leather, pike hafts, gold bits, hair. So likely another week or two but still on course for the end of May I think.

Looking really good... Warmaster was always a good game... sad that GW just kind of let it die.

There's a dozen of us in New England who still play if you're interested.

I finished up the red this week (although I'm thinking I might hit it with one more highlight, thoughts?) and got a basecoat and wash on the leather, wood, socks and hair. I hope to finish those up next week, paint the feathers and do touchup, then basing!

Are they yellow or orange? I can't tell.

Either way, they look great. When this army reaches critical mass, it would be great to see some army shots.

Nice work!

(Those out-size pikes always make me laugh. You should model a couple guys tipping over under the weight of their tree-trunk pike staffs.)

I haven't found this to be a problem, myself.

Fred,

While a bonsai is technically a tree, it's not quite applicable.

Any thinner on the pikes are they'd be hard to cast.

I was hoping to get some decals on these for the banners but ran into printer problems. These are "done enough" for the Tale, but I hope to come back to them at one point for the banners, one more dullcote and grass tufts for the Warmonger Miniatures store.

Splendid!

I have nothing more to add. Unless of course another dick joke is needed.
