Iron Fang Swordsmen

The martial traditions of swordsmanship live on in the province of South Khador, having been rolled under the command of the Iron Fang.  Before Cygnar was liberated from the Tyrant Vinter, these unit were known as Sword Knights.  Although most South Khadoran Iron Fangs spend their careers guarding the peasantry from marauding Cryx and Menoth pirates, Viscount Alain Runewood has traveled to the imperial capital to study under the greatest Iron Fang warriors to teach his subordinates the superior fighting tactics developed there.

Red is MSP Retro Red Steel with SW Ruby wash.  Then highlighted with Vallejo Metal Medium.  Steel bits are VAC Steel with P3 Armor Wash.  Cloaks and butt capes are MSP White with MSP Soft Blue shadows.  Grass was done with my static grass box, which made a HUGE mess.  I wish I had a garage I could do that in.

July 4th Paint Day

I had some friends over for the 4th and we painted some minis!  Well, they painted minis and I advised.

The first row contains Ninja All-Stars chibis from Remy (8), Laurean (adult), and Avi (5)

The second row is Chris, Alicia and Adam (all adults)

AFAIK, none of them have painted minis before.  Laurean is an artist though, and it shows.

Farrow Valkyries

Wow, these ladies were fun to paint. The hair in particular was fun. RMS Carrottop Red, Harvest Brown and Blond Shadow, all of them highlighting up to Blond Highlight. Metal was VMC Oily Steel with P3 Armor Wash + Agrax Earthshade (2:1 or 3:1), then highlighted with P3 Quicksilver. Skin was directional highlighting + DR Burnt Umber ink. Main skirt was highlighting + a mix of green and brown ink (to create a dark brown).

I tried out my new static grass applicator.  It made a giant mess, but at least the grass looks nice, and did a decent job of getting up underneath (next time I’ll apply the grass before gluing the figure).

Against a different background:

Gray Maidens – Update 1

Working on some Gray Maidens – grunts, lieutenants and captain – for Curse of the Crimson Throne.

VMA Steel + Citadel Guilliman Blue (glaze), then mixing in VMA Aluminum for the armor.  Wash of Citadel Drakenhof Nightshade (shade).  RMS HD Crimson Red for the cloth bits and RMS Tanned Flesh for the exposed skin.
