Bretonnian Knights unit, almost done!

Just a quickie! I based up the musician I showed yesterday and here he is with the rest of the unit. Just the standard bearer to do now.

  1. Beautiful! Are these all citadel? Would be grateful to know which range they come from. Also which bases/tray are you using? Thanks

    1. All Citadel 3rd edition WFB from 1990 or 1991 except the musician which is 5th edition so mid-90's. These are some of my favourite Bretonnians and apart from the musician have been with me since the time they were released (and painted a couple of times prior to their current state).

  3. Such lovely highlighting. If they weren't so small, you could almost swear they were alive!

  4. I'm afraid I have to abduct you, lock you in my basement and then torture you untill you tell me how to paint the metals.

    1. LOL... Base mix of VMA Steel and a bit of black and VMC US Olive Drab then highlight up to pure Steel. A mix wash of GW Nuln Oil and Agrax Earthshade then a few paint washes, various mixes of brown, blue and yellow ochre to add extra depth. Finish off with by picking out edges with more Steel. :D

    2. Ok, just to make sure - you apply the dark mix first, and then highlight with progressively lighter glazes, before washing, right?

    3. Yeah, dark mix first then add progressively lighter layers to build up the highlights. Generally the lighter you go, the less surface area you want to cover with each layer. The layers aren't glazes though. Then go in with the washes. :)
