You've got me wanting to paint!  And I'm thinking my Matorean's shields will also have a white field.

About as uch touch up as I can handle 😺
Shields finished (I think)
Next handful of 8 started. Had to move upstairs for actual light till it runs out. Looks like I may not see power for a few days. Another 4000 people going thru the same thing. I may continue a bit but this light thing is a pain.

I love how these are coming out.  The shields look very good!

Only comment is to next time try thinning out the white paint with water a little bit more because it will give a smoother look to them.

I also like how the figures are looking side by side like that.  It make me want to paint. :::cheers:::

Thanks GP!
Good point about the white. It does look a bit globby. I am super enjoying the colour scheme here and finding it much easier to paint as opposed to red and white. I actually did more colours yesterday till the light was gone. I might have that bunch finished today.

Just ebayíd a bunch of 1/32 scale coldstream, scots Guard and mounted lifeguard. Should have about $150 to put back into the hobby. Vanguard or saxons? That wish list on lion rampant just seemed to get closer.

I just got reliable power back, so I'm catching up a bit.

I think everything looks great. The blue and orange is turning out very well.

I have my Matorean swordsmen and handgunners out on a piece of foam board and they are now begging me to complete them.  Again.

Do it! (After the French ww1 😸)

Decided to change out the leader with an engineer that was mucking about without orders. Realized afterword heís on a small base. Curses!



They a few colours on the rest of the team. Might complete them tomorrow.

The Matorean 1st Company. Warband complete I think. Now on to there deamon/ creature antithesis.
A rugged group of vets I beleive. They will need to be to face whatís coming.

Thanks Gankom!
Here is the bad guys brigade. Borrowing some random creatures from other armyís but they make a mean team. All I did to these guys was fix up their bases. The blue scribes found their way here because I could not find a spot for them in T9A. So they got the round base treatment. The deamon host is just pure fun but I think their bite will be worse than their bark.

The bad boys brigade are done. 39 points and 40 for the Matoreans. Full warbands to launch at each otherís throats. Next up my first dragon rampant game. Iím actually feeling bad for the matoreans. I hope their up for it but according to their fluff, their swordsmen are equal to any empire and their spearmen are quite adept.

By the way, I picked up a copy of Dragon Rampant from a flea market table at the Huzzah! gaming convention last weekend, looks good!

Looks like a "men of the west" grouping is in store for your Matoreans?

Thanks Xath!  I really love these guys as well. Had some fun with bright colours. Nothing like something that looks bright and fun that can rip your head off and make you dance in a magical fire. What a great party guest 😸

Found a few converts to the bad boys brigade. 6 goblin riders from the LotR line. They will make a good 12 point (2 ea) unit of cavalry.
I can match these with my imperial knights as cavalry to balance. Just thought of that while writing. That gives me another stretch goal 😺 Also in DR there are units for monsters/creatures. Some old cold ones can come out to play. A place for everything.

Hey Artoban ... did you see the Forgotten World kickstarter campaign?

These boxes make units of 6 or 12 (or even 18 in some cases, the rabbles and zombies).  Perfect for Dragon Rampant! :icon_mrgreen:

Here is a link ... only a few hours remaining ...
