Freeguild Averland for Age of Sigmar
« on: November 05, 2018, 08:56:54 AM »
Hey

For next 8 months I want to paint a 1500 army of Averland (Freeguild in Age of Sigmar).

Quote
100 – Freeguild General
260 – Von Zeppel’s Steam Tank
260 – War Wagon with battlemage
120 – Battlemage
280 – 10x Knights
130 – 5x Outriders
80– 10x Freeguild Guard
200 – 20x Handgunners
120 – Hellblaster Volley Gun

The list is not competitive, it's only for enjoy painting it.

At the moment I only have painted a handgunner unit, I hope you like it! BTW, the bases are not finished. I will add purple tufts and gravestones.








Cheers

Love it! Very nice color contrast and neat clean style. Combination of old and "new" handgunners + forgeworld command group looks very natural  :smile2:

Great coloring on these, and I like the green feathers! :icon_biggrin: :eusa_clap:

The forge world command team with the regular GW gunners is a good contrast between the figures. :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

Great job. Yellow is a very difficult colour to work with

I find these breathtaking.

I am specially fond of how you've based them. The eerie green makes a fine contrast with their uniforms, marries them most excellently into the setting!

Thanks for your comments!!

The bases are unfinished. I'm going to add some tufts painted with purple-violet and some tombstones.

At this moment I'm working in a Blazing Sun Knights unit. These warriors not belong to Averland, but share the same colours (black+yellow), for this reason I've decided to use them in my army. The original miniatures are out of shops, so I've used the classic Reikland cavalry miniatures.

The colour palette is the same for Stormcast Eternals. Base with retributor, was with Reikland fleshshade, recovering colour with retributor again, first highlight mixing it with Liberator, second highlight with Liberator and last highlight 1/2 liberator and silver (model Air).

I hope you like them!

You did a great job on those knights.
I also frequently customise current kits into OOP ones.

Nice.
for the past 2 years, I have sat in my cage, watching the owners put me in small, translucent spheres, and dump small, rock like food, into my cage. But no longer!, I have broken free of the shackles of being a hamster and now!, I paint, as a hamster can not do much more, mostly our small life span

Very nice mate,

Q: How do you get that effect on the bases? What do you use for that grass? Is it some sort of filler?
