So, I thought it was about time to dust off some unit boxes and dig up the bits bin and begin to actually paint some of these impressive GW grey and Green Stuff ... well ... green.
....anyways I figure the best way to get me motivated to put some paint on these models would be to post it in a thread so that my progress can be mocked or praised by those within the hobby who may find themselves in the same situation that I am in. A full time job, two young children, and a beautiful wife (whom does not game in any form :/ .... does create some discussions).
First up then will be my Bretonnians since I figure the many different colours of their heraldry will get the juices flowing so that I can then challenge myself to finishing my Space Marines, Dwarves, and then my beloved WoC. I have set myself up for roughly a 2000 point list (will post the list later for criticism... I mean praise?), which has bee put together more out of fluff than competiveness, although I do not think that I have too much more to add to reach that level. And I have 6 months to complete, I will give myself bonus marks if I finish before Christmas in four short months.
So here is the list before me;
Month One - 3 Pegasus Knights, and 2 units of 10 bowmen
Month Two - Damsel (Mounted), 5 Knights of the Realm (Musician)
Month Three - 9 Knights of the Realm (with FC)
Month Four - Bretonnian Lord, 8 Knights of the Realm (with FC)
Month Five - Paladin (mounted BS, 4 Grail Knights (Converted)
Month Six - Trebuchet, and Damsel (on foot just for fun)
I will begin posting pictures shortly of some of the WIP that I have begun putting together and customizing and then once I get going along with a little fluff, and then when the models are completed more pics will follow. I look forward to any suggestions, technniques and anything that I can improve upon since this will be the first full army which I will have complete rather than several partials.
Also I was looking to make the knight bases look like they have been recently trampled and was wondering if anyone had any experience on making hoof prints in GS. I was thinking of cutting off a leg from a spare horse and grinding it out a little to give it the 'shoed' appearance. Let me know what you think.
