for a while I've been collection the Brets but I'd like some help with a small issue.
The colours I have are limited and so are the funds at the moment, so it is hard to make the knights look different. Of course, fluffwise it could be explained as them being brothers, cousins or whatever, but that is not the approach I am looking for.
So the question is: What kind of other sprues could I use to give my knights a distinct appearance? Of course, you could recommend single miniatures too, but I'd prefer the sprues, since I am a horror with knives.
Any help'd be appreciated!
Perhaps some empire knights.
Ask me something about Warhammer: Age of Reckoning.
I considered them but I feel they wouldn't feel like proper knights. Maybe as errants but that's about it..
I tried just using a limited palette for one of my armies. I used black white and red. All i did was go for different patterns on the barding with black and white and then used the red to do the underneaths of the barding (it was scab red). It gives a more knight templars crusade style look but then the theme can be quite good. More variation can be achaived by mixing and matching the characters. Also if you are careful with construction it can look very effective.
As for other sprues empire knights are really the only things truly compatable unless you want to use empire foot troops and heavily convert arms etc.
EDIT: just thought why dont you look at the online store to see if you can find anything that tickles your fancy?
Yeah Lestat, that's something I tend to do as well. Because of the limited amount of paints at my disposal. (Gonna get some new ones tomorrow, though. Wee!)
Possibly also going to buy King Leoncour for conversion and use as a lord.
I just thought of something else if you wanted a crusade style force at some point the black templars accesories would be quite good hmmm time to go and have a look!!
Nah ,no crusaders for me (yet). I did try to colour scheme though, and it looked quite good.
However, for now I'll just continue as I am.
I could try a band of smaller knights, hedgeknights, made by combining empire militia parts with the knight parts. Any idea on compatibility?
