Will not!   :::cheers:::

How did you achieve the cobblestone effect on the bases?
I tried painting my pirate themed armies bases to resemble deck boards but it didn't work out too well

Take a look on the step-by-step post on my blog: https://thegatesofkislev.blogspot.com.es/2018/01/kossars-y-mas-kislev-kossars-and-more.html

It's a textured sheet, and they also have one for wooden parquet: https://plastcraftgames.com/es/textured-sheets/119-entarimado-de-madera.html

Wow, just went through all the pages. Some incredible work, you paint insanely fast, is it just yourself doing the painting, modelling etc? Seems mad how you bash out all these great minis. Big fan of the Knights, some of my fave models, I would have thought you'd have done Slaanesh, Tzeentch, Khorne and Nurgle Knights to go along with them ;)

Hi Spite, thank you for your words. Most of pictures here are models I've been painting for the last 2 years, but there are also some models painted by my colleagues. This includes some Khorne and Nurgle knights you can find on the gallery of our blog, http://thegatesofkislev.blogspot.com.es/p/aqui-teneis-una-galeria-con-las-fotos.html

Like this unit, for example, painted by Jordi, using old knights and new steeds:



Yes, maybe not the best angle to take a picture, hehehe...

Hi Rogers Kul,

Do you know if those old knights fit easily on the new steeds?

I like those older riders!  And they look good on the newer steeds.  Great painting job as well. :icon_biggrin: :icon_cool: :eusa_clap:

Hi Rogers Kul,

I asked Jordi and he says they just need  little bit of work with a knife on the steeds, because they are too wide. Nothing impossible.

Thank Games!

Here come the Sons of Ursa! I finished this unit a week ago, but I've been busy these days. Bears come from Scibor.
They appear in the Tuomas Pirinen Kislev army list from 1997:

"No othe regiment in the imperial army of Kislev typifies them more than the Sons of Ursa. Heavily armoured knights atop War Bears, they are a symbol of Kislev itself. They venture forth from their fortress monastery in times of great need to take their place at the front of the army as their most feared and respected warriors."











On the other hand, we've done another update of our current painting status. And this is it. The goal is finishing all the models in april.

They're magnificent models, forming an eye-catching unit. I especially like how the pure blue contrasts with the rather rugged hair & plate of the bears.

True. I never used this blue before and it's really cool (and cold).

Comrades,

We are reaching the goal, there are just a few more months of painting ahead... I have finished this Forgeworld 'miniature': Mr. Theodore Bruckner on Reaper, his loyal Demigryph. This fella did not fight in the Great War against Chaos (he is a contemporary hero of the Warhammer world), so in our battle he will be a generic commander. We still have not decided exactly what rules status he will have, but it is most likely that he will have stats of Grand Master, mounted on a monstrous beast with the same attributes as the Reaper Demigryph (a bit better than its congeners from the Demigryph Knights unit).

I would hope the reaper is not just a bit better than the regular demigryph 😺

Yep, neither I didn't realize before buying him. But, unlike other cases (see 40k Death Korps of Krieg compared with regular plastic Cadians...), his astonishing presence has something of lore sense, just take a look at the background:http://warhammerfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Theodore_Bruckner

No one mentioned "The Mountain who rides" before? :icon_lol:

Well, regular Demigryphs grant T4 and 3W and an upgrading to Monstrous Cavalry. We are unsure if the beast has to be comprised in this category or in Monster instead, enjoying T5 and 4W (also 1D6 Stomp and more offensive capacity).

Personally, I don't fancy the model that much, but this surely is a great piece of painting, and an eye-catcher on any battlefield.  :eusa_clap:

I'd definitely put it into the latter category. With that hulking size and chariot base - no question about it!

Wow, Theodore is ogre-sized! Looks great. Must be motivating to see the paintmeters advance at such a high pace!
