I finished the general of the Defenders of Makkum. He is painted in an a-typical style for me and I try to copy Dave Taylors clean way of painting. My usual approach is much more gritty but now I want to challenge myself and try to come up with some clean work.
I want my Knights to look like the Warriors of Ulric with the more Northmen like look that I imagine for the army. Not too much ribbons and hankerchiefs, instead that real warrior look.
I went for a Black and Yellow scheme for the barding and a red and blue for the rider. I enjoyed painting the horse a lot. Going down the legs, I spent a lot of time on the fur right above the hooves.
On my last post on the Swordsmen, some readers wanted to see the movement tray terrain placed in the back of the unit instead of the front. I shot a picture of that set up.
At this point I have finished 25 swordsmen, one wizard and the general. I have to leave the Defenders of Makkum for a while and focus on some different projects. I am working on some updates on the Hordes of Vormond, my Vampire Counts army, and I have to paint a Leman Russ for my friend Daniel in Singapore. Oh yeah, my Ogres are also asking for some attention. Lots of stuff coming up!
