Man that banner turned out better than I thought it would, if the only problem the width between the two banner halves should have been greater. I should really prime and paint up my own Blazing Suns.

Not the best picture ever.. but zooming in even with a macro function doesn't always yield great pictures..But here is "some" evidence on the horseshoes I wanted painted on my Knights of the White Wolf.


And I made myself some new shots of the unit with their finished movement trays.

Updated all the picture links again so they would all show again. Not any progress besides some work done on my halberdier regiment this past year. Hope to pick it up soon again and finish it.

But currently working on my Stormcast Eternals in the other thread.

I really like the fluff, the idea of a empire rapid deployment force is interesting. I like how you laid out your command structure named characters with their units, I do the same thing.  :dry:

So a long long while since I had anything worthwhile to mention here. But! I recently started with a Path to Glory campaign at my local GW shop, not sure if I can keep up with my painting skill but I'll try.

So here are a few pictures on what I have been working on (more on it my blog)


and my current painting

So took the decision to take pictures of him anyway without doing his base (read more on that here: https://wargamingbysks.wordpress.com/2016/12/19/collegiate-arcanes-first-bright-battlemage/ )

Yes call me a Heretic, but I actually like the rebased models! And making the decision ha taken a load of my shoulders and I am moving forward AoS style now!

Rebased Battlemage


But now for my newest addition:
A Free Guild General on warhorse





And my current progress for my Escalation League:

That general is organization on a horse. I somehow don't see a paperclip , quill or piece of parchment out of place on his desk. Nice character!

Well I had to wrap up my first ~500 points for the league so was going for a Battleready force. Will add details later.
All the story and a short story on my first battle on my blog: https://wargamingbysks.wordpress.com/2017/02/05/escalation-league-delivery-day-500-points/

Here my pictures:
(My General and Bright Battlemage you already know)

Nice colour scheme! The General has always been one of my favourite models. Good job with the troops too.

Ps. I don't know if you noticed but you've accidentally used wrong bases  :icon_mrgreen:

Nice report! To bad about the missed opportunities. Good to see the Free Guild in action with beautiful painting as usual. How long does the escalation campaign take?

As it stands now for another 2 months, going up to 750 and then 1000. Maybe we'll move up from there but unknown as of yet

So I did manage to go up to "750" points well not really but 680 and finish it up with a Hurricanum too the 1000 point mark, but then the Escalation League died a bit out and my hobby mojo was stalling.. It is back now and here is a unit that was almost done, but is now definitely off my working on list.
