For the second month of the OWAC III, I've followed an easy path: a regiment of only 10 miniatures, the noblemen who decided to join Pieter the Pious's quest.
Among the Citadel F2 Fighters and F5 Paladins ranges, I've tried to pick models with a crusader look, complemented by warrior priests. The only conversion made here is the standard bearer: I've simply replaced the left hand holding the original lamp of Sir Osram by a standard coming from an Empire plastic sprue (can't remember which one) and topped by a Black Templars relic.
For the painting, I have used a very limited palette to unify the models, starting with the flag, borrowed to the Knights Templar. The beige tones are made with a mix of white and VGC Heavy Brown, shaded with VMC Flat Earth and The Army Painter Strong Tone wash, and highlighted with VGC Bone White and VMC Ivory. The black tones are even simpler, with a base of VGC Heavy Charcoil, highlighted with VGC Bone White, and shaded with VGA Black or a mix of VMC Dark Sea Blue and Mahogany Brown. The red tones are more complex, with a mix of VMC, P3 and Andrea references.
And the family shots:
See you in March!
