    I have already posted the majority of my Lizardmen army and terrain over at my first paint log, so here are my other Warhammer painting projects that occasionally distract me from our jungle-bound home.

    Lustrian Bretonnians

    All started with a box-set of knights of the realm that my brother gave me, which sat on the shelf for years until I thought of a good color scheme.

    Kingdom of Jeruga, a Bretonnian colony in the New World

    Heraldry.jpg

    Some of my knights on foot:

    Sir Baldwin the Mud Knight

    This guy was my test knight, first heraldry I ever painted on a Bretonnian shield. He is based now but I cant find a picture...

    Knights of the Temple (On foot)
    Mordheim 1.jpg

    Just a couple more test minis that I made much later into my Lustrian Bretonnian project. The intent is to use them for Mordheim games. Each one is mostly resin-cast that I produced myself. I am particularly proud of the great-sword wielding knight.

    Most of my WIP pictures for my Lustrian Bretonnians are located over at the Round Table, my other Warhammer home.

    Knights of the Realm

    My favorite units! And the most classically Bretonnian. Currently I have two units of Knights of the Realm and two Knights of the Temple, which are just Errants by another name (they are zealous or something)

    Knights of the Temple

    My count-as Knights Errant. Cool thing about these guys is aside from their lances, standard, and some of the heads they are almost entirely resin-cast, including the horses.

    These all look great! Amazing work on the heraldry, and my favourite is Sir Baldwin the Mud Knight!

    They look excellent! One fast advice; I don´t know it you thin down the paint you use but if you don´t you should give it a try. That would help you get a smoother pain coat on you models, remember that 2 thin coats are always better than a thick one ;)

    Peasants!

    The downtrodden masses of the Bretonnian kingdoms. A lot of people miss the older peasant models, but personally I loved how characterful and gritty they look. Thanks to my casting projects I have been able to churn out quite a few of them, I have a lot still to do!

    Men-at-Arms
    Currently have two units of trusty Men-at-Arms (both based!), the first in the employ of Count Raymond of Luon, the second in the employ of the Knights of the Temple.

    Peasant Bowmen
    I have broken the archers up into four units of ten, each dedicated to a different lord/faction. Not completely finished yet of course, but I have put together some characterful mantlets for use during siege scenarios!

    Heroes on Foot

    Some more pictures of my knights on foot (I found the based pictures...) and my hedge wizards!
    Foot Knights based.jpg

    Sir Baldwin (Third son of the King of Jeruga), and the Knights of the Temple Sir Edward (with ax), Sir Hoenheim (sword), and Sir Alphonse (greatsword).

    Quick picture of the Templars leading an example Mordheim band!
    IMG_0098.jpg

    And here are the Hedge Wizards of Lustria. I originally bought a single box of Empire Wizards because it was MUCH cheaper than buying a single Bretonnian damsel at the time (they were all metal models). They were what started me casting my own models; after casting the wizard's robes I was able to make four instead of just two. After some creative bits use I was able to make four very different wizards!

    From left to right:
    Rufus the Good, Tim the Bad, Mathus the Ugly, and Bathasar the Weird.

    Thanks for the compliments! I don't have a full army shot with my terrain as it is, the closest thing I have is the wide shot of my knights charging down next to my (unfinished at the time) fortress walls. I liked the pictures, they reminded me out of something from the old White Dwarf magazines!

    Very nice @Warden I love them all, good work on the wizards.

    Side note: before I went on holiday my mother-in-law had me clear out her loft and I found a carry bag full of my old models, all metal from the 80ies and most are painted badly, will put some pics up when I get time.

    More pics of the wizards, plus the fluff blurb I created for them.

    Wizard 3.jpg
    Rufus the Good- a wandering hermit-wizard long marooned on the shores of Lustria; travels the New World from Jeruga to Swamp Town to Skeggi, offering his services as a bounty hunter, jungle pathfinder, and general wizard-for-hire.

    Tim the Bad.jpg
    Tim the Bad- deadly and terrifying wizard assassin who uses his spells to slay with impunity. Is hired by local warlords and merchants because once he is paid, he always gets the job done.
    - Definitely my favorite creation of the four (for obvious reasons) shown here with one of my jungle catapults, raining down fire from above!


    WIzards 5.jpg
    Mathus the Ugly- hideously scarred wizard who works closely with the black market and secret underbelly of Lustrian-town society. In these circles he is well known as a tomb robber and procurer of rare New World jungle artifacts of great power. Is known to have recently embarked upon an expedition to the Lost Temple of Kopan, his whereabouts are yet to be disclosed...

    Bathasar the Weird.jpg
    Bathasar the Weird- an exiled Astrologist of the Celestial order of Wizards. Since his banishment from the Empire and the Old World, he has taken up residence in the royal court of Jeruga, as well as working closely with the Order of the Temple as seer, advisor, and court chronicler.

    These wizards are all fantastic. The fluff blurbs are brilliant. A small amount of background detail like that goes a long way!

    Jungle Trebuchets

    I never could justify buying the Bretonnian trebuchet when it was still in production due to its cost... $50 plus bucks... So when it came time for me to fill out the rare slots of my Bretonnian ranks I decided to create my own!

    Trebuchet WIP 6.jpg

    They are all based on the same clay model, which I cast with resin and duplicated four times. Nice and cheap, cost me about $20 for the materials to build all four with tons of resin left over to manufacture ranks of men-at-arms, archers, and knights.

    Trebuchet WIP 3.jpg

    In the previous one you can see the base trays at an earlier stage of construction. They are not done yet, due to me being unable to decide exactly how they should look.

    Trebuchet WIP 4.jpg

    Trebuchet WIP 5.jpg

    Really loved how they turned out, even if they are a bit frumpy. They were so much fun to put together and paint, knowing that I had created them all from scratch! Now I just need to make the crews... :shifty: dirty peasants.
