So this happened
sorry for the slightly blurry Secure-cam pict, General, but forward units of Enforcement strike team Epsilon, Atlas battalion, have arrived on base.
i found a couple sprues of enforcers, so im going to be adding a detachment to my force.
And basing part 1
Part 3 to come...
The spearelves look good so far; were you planning to add any designs to the shields?
Nope. I like them blank.
These guys are looking good. Can't wait to see part 3.
And part 3
Fantastic! Great looking unit.
Thanks Bowser. Next up is your card.
You're a busy man!
You have no idea my friend.
So I found these elephants at the dollar store today. I'm currently deciding how to convert them to fit either as mumakil for my 1/72 Lord of the rings project or as something else.
Options I've come up with
1. Wrapping it up in greenstuff mummy wrapping and add tomb Kings parts..
2. Convert with bits to make a standard "beast chained and used by evil humans" vibe
3. also standard conversion for use with historicals.
4. Go buy two more later and use reclaimed wood and paint to make book ends.
They are made of fairly ridged plastic so any of these is doable.
On the Lord of the rings 1/72nd front....Some knights of the citadel on foot. Please understand how small those shields are when you cringe at my crappy freehand.
Note: I would have used a darker navy blue, indeed I tried.....It came out glossy. Both bottles, after vigorous shaking. I don't know what's wrong with my game color imperial blue but it's annoying...
I think you did alright. Might need to water your paint down a bit, but I think they turned out really well.
Thanks Bowser. I think I'll wash the faces tomorrow before starting on the next batch.
Yup your heraldry looks a lot like mine when I do free hand for my Bretonnians...
Keep practicing though! I need to keep watching more free hand tutorials online.
So I just realized I have to rebase two 1000 Point armies.....
OK guys. So, here's the current brainstorm for 1/72nd armies/units plan:
Combined armies of the free people's of middle earth:
13th century knights = guards of the citadel
13th century knights with teutonic headswap and possible greenstuff capes = fountain court guard
Medievals with spears, swords, bows = warriors of Gondor
Scots = axemen of lossanarch
German cav = Rohan
Russian knights = Rohan kings household
El Cid Iberians = something Gondor
Combined forces of the dark Lord sauron
Dunlendings = alliance Cimmerians
Orcs and uruk hai = alliance sets
Armored trolls = alliance sets
Arabs = haradrim
Armored Muslim warriors = easterlings
Republican Romans = basilean counts as, with God's and mythical creatures Elohi, etc
Cimmerians with a different paint scheme = varangur
Arcane legions stuff:
Romans = abyssal dwarves/frozen north scheme
Egyptians = undead, not empires of dust. This is because I'll mix in Caesar skeletons
Han = elves/ terracotta army
I've got ideas if a cross between alliance Amazon's and historical Greeks as trident realms with a blue skin paint scheme.
Full regiment of 16 guard of the citadel painted. I have to go pick up MDF unit bases tomorrow.
Furthermore, I dug out some of my untouched dark alliance half orcs. In addition to my pikemen, which I found out had paint peeling, are now in a paint stripping bath.
Once again I apologise for the bad pictures. My phone is good but I haven't properly researched cleaning yet. I also know I need to build a light box, but family needs come first.
Also, yes the belts are not fully picked out on the knights. I am looking to decide on whether to spend the time on detailing or just paint more troops.
