Good evening everyone!
Time is running, it's been several days since my last post, and I only have 13 days left before the deadline. But I have several figures to show this time, and some good news regarding the figures to come.
Let's begin with the first element of knights (2 elements are required for my army list):
These figures come from Miniart set #72007 French mounted knights. Historically speaking, they represent french knights from the second half of the 15th century, which was a period of war against Burgundy. They are earlier warriors than the 16th Swiss and Landsknechts, but they're still ok together in a fantasy army.
In my Empire army, they stand for noble landowners, not military orders - the next element should represent these particular knights.
I also finished to paint my Fanatics element, a real (small) motley crew:
The first fanatic on the left has already been displayed in episode 2. The three others are minis by Strelets , Zvezda and Redbox.
I've also begun to convert and paint some figures as Fire wizards. After priming and face painting (first layer with base color), they look like that:
It's the first time I try to represent fire with metal armature and cotton. Hmm, not very convinced with the flames made by the wizard on the right - I'll see after painting if I need to do it again.
Will you guess where these two wizards come from ?
So, the work progress is now this:
|Troop type||Number of elements||figs per element||Number of figures||painted figures|
7 elements (out of 12) are ready.
The next step will be to paint the Arquebusiers. The 3 missing Talabecland arquebusiers have their basic colors and washes, I just need to add lightenings. The color scheme for the mercenaries has been chosen, and the test shot figure also has basic colors and washes done.
After that, I will paint the second knights element, then the two wizards.
And at last, I will have to paint the general element, including a knight on horse as general, a foot aide-de-camp or engineer, and a standard bearer.
See you for the next episode of the Orctober challenge :)
