Haggis Rampant; Foot Men at Arms II Added 04.01.16

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

Haggis Rampant; Foot Men at Arms II Added 04.01.16

Post by Atheling » Mon Nov 30, 2015 10:58 pm

Foot Men at Arms Unit II Added- Please Scroll Down:

Here's what I've been working on of late (for personal use :) ).

It's the first six Men at Arms on Foot for our club's Haggis Rampant campaign. I sculpted the straps for the shields on as I thought that they looked a little odd just hanging on space instead of being attached to their torso's.

You can see many many more pics and read all the gumph on my La Journee Blog here:

Here's a few pics to hopefully whet you appetite:

Thanks, I'll take that as a great compliment- humble as I am :lol:

Seriously though, thanks for the very kind words :)

Here's a pic of the Heraldic Standard Bearer in fullness:

Re: Haggis Rampant; FIERCE FOOT ADDED 03.12.15

Post by Atheling » Mon Jan 04, 2016 9:42 am

Latest additions to my Haggis Rampant force are a u it of Foot Men at Arms and a few Fierce Foot. They have actually been painted up for a month or so but for reasons outlined on my blog they haven't until recently seen the camera lens.

I'm quite pleased with them really and they have more of a liveried look than the last batch of Foot Men at Arm; historically contrived but needed I think in a skirmish force where we might have four retinues on the table top at one given time.

you can as usual read more about my reasons for painting them up in the manner depicted and see many more pics on my Just Add Water Blog here:

Here are some samples of the miniatures:

"Points to the comfy chair"[/quote

Art College education and ensuring that even bright reds and yellows appear natural by keeping the hue muted to some degree. Then I simply highlight up by adding VMC Ivory (I find off white and white far too stark). I do at least five layers. Usually no more unless there's an extreme edge of a garment to highlight.

Simplest way of doing this is to add a 'grey'. When I say a grey I mean a mix of two complimentary tertiary colours. I hope that's not too complex an answer?

If so google basic colour theory and tertiary colour mixing
