i'm starting a bret vetran talk. it's were veterans talk about bret stuff without having to help beginners with the basics.so it can be about rules,models,painting,tatics,collecting,status,etc... :rofl:
(we talk here )
well if you see a deer scream for mercy from god
if you see a snake smile and say hello
Ahh... Sorry, but this seems a bit of a pointless topic to me. If you have something specific more than beginners stuff then ask or discuss it, but people can easily make a thread about any level of Bretonnians at any time...
Maybe I will mention painting though... I have opted to make all my knights have their own heraldry and unique colour scheme, it takes quite a while to think up colours for each knight and paint them. But I have the problem that they may start looking like a circus as others from different sites have mentioned. And I can't seem to get the knights looking good, horses are really hard to paint up looking good and I'm not sure where to put shading and highlights on the models. The dress of the horses turns out one big mass of a colour and doesn't look great, if I ink it then detail is added but they would all be dark...
yeah i do the same with my knights (ie indivdual colour scheme) i will post some pics later
I paint all my knights in the same color scheme, I can't stand the "unique snowflake" circus troupe that GW is pimping. If I were to try it, however, i would pick a muted highlight color and use it on every knight. For instance rotting flesh or bleached bone. I would also do the same neutral colors on everyone, that is to say, details such as leather straps, harnesses, and the horses. This way I think that every knight would seem unique but at the same time look kind of unified.
ive been repainting my bretonnians, into the same colour scheme. now i will have to post pics
I personally like the uniqueness, at least with the knights. With the peasant it is just redundant. The knights are more interesting to me when they are in different colors; they look more prestigous that way.
If a tree falls in the woods and there's no one 'round to hear it is it still my fault.
yeah but mine were shockingly painted :wacko:
now there pretty good
Just a thought on the 6th ed. knight models and color schemes...
All of these knights are from the Kingdom of Bretonnia. Individual knights are from certain principalities, Baronies, Fiefdoms, etc.. Although each knight will have thier own heraldry design, the mounts do not have to follow suit.
A single unit of KOR's could concievably have come from the same Barony to attend the battle...so the mounts barding, pennants and banners could all be painted the Baronial colors of choice with the specific knightly device painted on the shield areas of the mounts barding, knights shield and surcoat.
This process would solve the 'circus' problem, theme the units and still keep the Knights dignity in tact!
This could also work with the Questing Knights, Knights Errant and of course the lowly peasant serfs. This would not work for the Grail Knights and of course Lords, Barons and Kings, as they have earned the right to bear thier own arms in total.
Oooops...my Bretonnian knightly character just surfaced for a minute....... am now lowering my nose from the raised position. Ha Ha
Happy playing and painting!!
what i do is i paint all my horses different so they look more diverse and different
