Every now and then I make (some) sense ;)

Now I only need to paint the quivers...and another 7 models that I left unpainted! There are also 5 that I need to strip the paint off, and that would complete all 30 of them.


30? This is why I have to stay with 3rd edition. Units of 20 get annoying to me.

Well I don't play (neither in 6th nor in T9A) units of more than 20 models! I prefer 2 units of 20 Spears than a unit of 40 in terms of gameplay, and luckily for me both 6th and T9A support my personal taste.

But in this particular case I have 30 LSG because I bought them second hand from a guy who was moving and wanted to part ways with them quickly. Since he was already making a discount and metal LSG are difficult to find at a good price, I felt it wasn't fair to further ask him if he was willing to split. So I took them all :D

starting to look great. You're quite far along with Teclis already.

As for the maidenguard, I like them. They're nice models and I like the contrast between the more bronze / flesh colors of the front of the models and the blue of the cloaks.

Yeah I had some free time and I was motivated to start :D

Thanks about the Maidenguard, one of the comments of my girlfriend was that the bronze and the flesh tones were a bit too close, but I didn't know how to create more contrast between the two!

Maybe try a red wash on the skin and a black wash over the bronze to differentiate them further?

They look great so far, Teclis is coming along nicely!

He’s got a real ‘night sky’ vibe.

I agree with her in part at least. You could lighten the skin and darken the armour a bit if you want to distinguish them further. But I was more thinking in terms of complete units and army and less on the individual models. When you have a unit of 15 of them in the middle of an army then these individual detail matter less and the overall impression is more important.

That's a good idea, perhaps instead of black on the bronze I'd try an Agrax Earthshade wash :)

You are right of course, overall impression triumphs over detail for units :)
I'll note your suggestions and perhaps apply them when I am done with other models, after Teclis the Phoenix Guard are on the painting line.

As I mentioned, some army shots!

Whole panted army
Image

The white and blue side:
I made shields for the cavalry finally :) Unfortunately the banner of the Dragon Princes is broken and I need to repair it.
I also painted more Archers, I only had 10 previously.
Image

The blue and green side:
Bolt Throwers are in bases now, and the lone Phoenix Guard has joined the Maiden Guard with the excuse that their cloaks look similar :P

Well, if I had to chose a unit I would probably go with the pretty maidens as well. Though he might have some trouble with his pick-up line... ;)

Starting to look like an impressive army. For me that's the joy of looking back. You suddenly realise how far you've come.

Some girls like the strong and silent types :wink:

The army looks really good, kudos on all your progress!

:lol:

Thanks everyone :D It is indeed satisfying to see the progress! Painted minis are always cool to look at.

My next steps are (in no particular order):
- Finishing Teclis
- Painting these two elven ladies:
https://www.darkswordminiatures.com/sho ... h-bow.html
https://www.darkswordminiatures.com/sho ... hield.html
- Painting the Phoenix Guard.
- Somewhere along the way paint 7 more metal LSG and 25 quivers #-o

Sounds like these guys sort of just snuck up on you... ;)

Looking forward to see where it goes.
