Bretonnian Knight and retinue - For Piers

Bretonnian Knight and retinue - For Piers

Postby thehivemind » 04 Sep 2013

This Red speed build was the perfect excuse to finish this little warband .
I ve given them to Piers as a present for his birthday . He did the photos .

They are intended for play in our upcoming Mordheim campaign during the autumn , and other fantasy games. I went for the classic yellow and red quarters pattern , so they cant hide amongst the rubble of Mordheim !

They were a joy to paint up , most of them being classic Perry Citadel sculpts from the 80s . Im also very happy with a new way I m doing skin tones , I think I ve managed to get that ruddy and stubbled look to them .

Hope you like

To be fair, the pictures dont do any justice to the painting.

They look far, far better than the pictures. :this:

Beautiful work, love these!

Always had a soft spot for the Bretonnians, they were my first ever wargames figures! Back in the days before Citadel's miniature design team went batshit insane... :scratch:

Cheers
