    The next batch of 28 men-at-arms is good for now, enough to show pictures before I complete them all. I really enjoy painting these guys, even if they are peasants!

    Some of the more characterful models- the Jester:

    the Herald:

    And a new unit champion:

    Paint looks a tad thick on the heralds shield

    Just a tad ;) that's one way to put it... personally I would have just said "buckets and buckets" as I don't really thin my paints... at all. Surprisingly the yellow paint is one of the few GW paints I still use (that and the metallic paint) but I have noticed that "averland sunset" tends to clump really badly when it is applied :banghead:.

    What is the secret to thinning yellow paint?

    Have a rammikin partially filled with water on your desk. Drop of paint in pallet, occasional drop of water from rammikib

    You could always buy airbrush paint, they are already thinned down for you.

    Wet Palette works well. Better than applying water directly IMO.

    I had to look up what this word meant :confused::D

    Thank you for the tips gentlemen! Work continues on the next batch of men-at-arms, this should be the final group of Lustrian Bretonnian infantry for a while, unless I make more archers.

    My men-at-arms are all painted up finally. I attempted to "thin" my paints for the rest of the heraldry I painted ("thin" in quotes because I have more experimenting to do with future models... :shifty:), but overall I am pleased with the results.

    And a group shot with all 80 men-at-arms!

    I will post the grail pilgrims when the King is complete, still got more work to do with him. Also I need to go through and add more jungle plants to really finish these guys off completely.

    My jungle-trebuchet crews are painted as well!

    warden201710_WIP trebuchets 01.jpg

    All are just equipped with some scratch-built weaponry. If I really wanted too I could probably skip the trebuchets and run them as a group of x16 men-at-arms just armed with hand weapons.

    Individual trebuchet weapons and their crews. Each trebuchet is painted in a different heraldry scheme, one for each unit of men-at-arms:

    warden201710_WIP trebuchets 07_zaragon.jpg


    And here is another big group shot:

    warden201710_WIP men at arms 07.jpg

    Definitely fun to make, one of the best experiments I have attempted in the warhammer hobby so far. Only 38 of the models here are actually completely plastic; the rest have custom resin parts. The quality isn't as good of course, but good enough for grubby peasants!
