Smartah here with a new and improved ex army... Well the start of it at least. After reinvesting into the game about a year and a half ago, I finally got around to painting! With the help of my hippo buddy, we decided that the new color scheme is Green, Black, White, Silver/Grey and a splash of something fancy like Purple here and there.

There will be white units (the "good" guys)
There will be black units (the "bad" guys)

I decided to paint up a hero first just to get my rusty painting some time to adjust again, so here is a WiP of a dismounted knight! So far I am pretty excited on the color scheme.

Nice painting!! :o

You could paint his arms and gloves brown like his legs, to break the green-nes in that area.
Did you notice his lefthand sword still has a scabbard on it? ;)


Lord Ok

Thanks guys! Yeah, I agree there is too much green on his arms. And I did not notice that! Silly knight! :roll:

The wash I used for the green was reaper Forest green. It does have a lot of blue in the mix

I keep telling you simple stuff like that is not hard. Shoot, with just a tiny bit of practice I've improved dramatically from my first ex army.

my hands as I get older are getting more shaky but touching the hand that holds the model and the hand that holds the paint brush togeather as I paint really makes things work
