Painting Ex-spear-ament PLUS Command Units!

Recommended Posts

COMMAND UNITS are commented below!

Here's my first set of Daqan infantry. Instead of knights serving under one banner, I wanted each knight to have his/her own coat of arms and I'm painting my infantry to support those individual knights. Each set of four infantry will have its own paint scheme, but still be tied together with a predominance of silver armor. You can view the high quality photos on my flickr account https://www.flickr.com/photos/143447216@N03/33522176794/in/dateposted-public/ and I'll upload more as they are finished.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thats some nice freehand, or if it isnt thats some clever faking of freehand.

I like the first guys better personally. Probably biased since i dont like checker patterns

Haha... yes, I wasn't as happy with the checker pattern once it was done. Looks a bit too much like a picnic blanket.

Aye. Love the blue and turquoise.

And sadly must admit I was thinking tablecloth with the others.

All is not lost though! They are the mighty Daqan First Combat Waiter Regiment! Spears and fresh baguettes delivered promptly and with courtesy! Try the soup.

outta have a rune golem that looks like Yogi Bear be around the checkered guys....

haha... yes! Maybe a standard bearer with a dinner plate motif. I see now that I really should have just embraced the kitchen theme from the start.

I really like the checker on the shield, but maybe just white on the tabbard.

 

That's a good suggestion! Keep it from getting too overwhelming.

I actually like the checker pattern and it is well executed. Maybe not white and red, even if it is a Saturday nature hike classic.

Are you freakin kidding me?

Thats freehand? Good god you stepped your game up.

Also how are you doing the basing without messing up the puzzle pieces? i actually ripped my basing off (not that hard with PVA glue holding it down lol) because it was making removing/adding bases annoying as hell.

Thanks! I kinda regretted the pattern on the green soldiers because they took so long, but I was really happy with how they turned out. As for the basing, after each step I wipe the edges clean and make sure nothing is going over the sides (at least not thick paint or mud). Scraping the edges with a knife usually does the trick if I missed something or a piece is sticking though.

I also finished up my Command Units for the Daqan. I was on a business trip and brought all my painting stuff to the hotel. I'm not entirely sure what the cleaning staff thought... The flag bearer and the warrior are both done with new unit colors I want to use for Hawthorn when he comes out. The wizard just wears what he wants.

That banner is truly stunning.

Thank you! I realized half way through that I'd accidentally made it a little more Scottish than I'd intended. I probably should have gone with a white cross instead of an "x"
