 :happy: Thank you all for your comments!

Awesome painting. If you dont mind me asking how did you paint the wood fencing?

Of course, I was going this way (never used fixed colors, mix em few ways to get more interesting shades):

1. First layer was deep-brown with little addings of flesh

2. Next overbrushing layer consist of little deep-brown, more flesh and little yellow-brown

3. Than two layers of dry-brush with a bonewhite adding to pale flesh, little yellow-brown and some black color for muting

 :smile2: :mellow: 2 captains for my Nordland troops!)








With an excellent idea, the figures are poorly molded and disgustingly made. A huge number of casting defects are superimposed on problems with proportions (the details are mixed on a "heroic" and "realistic" scale). I cleaned some of the parts, hid some of them with painting, and did not do anything with some others.

More nice additions to the army! They are very swashbuckling. Nice idea to put them on little rocks so they are head and shoulders above the regular grunts  :wink:

 :ph34r: Halberdiers Regiment "The Purple dandies" repainted!
Add some oldschool halberds for new fillers, repose and give minor conversions to old miniatures.

Those are absolutely immense! I love how you did NMM for every model, insanity!

Really clever as well to split the horde onto 2 trays for using separately too.

I did not immediately come to this thought.

The most popular formations for huge blocks of state troops are "anchor" and "horde", and movement tray can significantly simplify the rebuilding of them during a large and heavy game-)

Summarizing, my nearest goal is to get "Grand Barony Look" to the whole army  :smile2:

It's really powerful painting style , really unique
Ask yourself , what is real? 5 sense filtered reality is a very limited perspective.

will you post individual pictures of the units you haven't yet? I'd be interested in seeing your knights and infantry closer up!

 :happy: Thank you for your complimentary opinion!

Iím about to have another infantry regiment finished - spearmen (old miniatures of the 5-6th edition, brilliant Perry's sculptings).
There will be new photos soon, for you I will add a few close-ups.
