From SeanS - Bretonnian Retainers and Wizards (194 points)

HI All,

OMFG! What a day. This was one of those where I thought I was so close to being finished, only to find glaring errors or omissions hold me back. But now they're done.



I added these two C02 Wizards, Mazda and Holbon Toddlebrew to add a fun diversion to batch painting. I have no idea how much a wizard costs right now, and I don't care. LOOK AT THEM!



My photos are shit as well, but let's not dwell on that.



Yes that is a calculator on his  belt. Probably a TI-80.



I put stars and a crescent moon on Holbon because that just screams Wizard.



The Baron is leading some retainers, 33 points for him. 81 points for the other 9 men. I armed them with light armor, shields and spears.



My experience against Bretonnians tells me this is the most common view of them on the battlefield.



The second rank. A shout out to my man blue for helping me fill out this unit.



I'm surprised only one soldier has a bottle hanging from his belt.



The Crossbowmen are worth 80 points. I only gave them a Crossbow and Hand Weapon. This unit is a mix of Games Workshop and Foundry figures.



The plastic crossbows for the GW figures seem a tad over sized.





There were triumphs and tragedies with each and every figure, but overall I'm happy with how they turned out. Sorry for the shit photography, but I just needed to call these done.

Thanks for looking.

  2. Lovely looking unit mate. The red and white baron really catches your eye amongst the yellow and blue infantry.

    1. Thanks Anthony, the blue I have goes on well but the yellow was challenging. I ended up laying down an orange brown underneath.

    2. That’s how I always plan to do yellow, but rarely end up using it on my figs. It’s a very unforgiving color

  9. Love that baron. Great to see him painted.

    Interested to know what yellows you're using. I've never found one suitable in terms of colour and translucency to rock out an army sized project with since the heady days of Sunburst Yellow.
