My SAGA Order of St John warband continues to grow with the some Fresh faces as Spearmen. These are still the Fireforged Games troops, that I also used on the Crossbowmen. I have been block painting the my Order of St John to speed up the production of units, but also so I don’t burn out doing Red and mostly Red.
I changed ups some of the colours I had been using on timber with these guys and I think I got a far better result on the spears. The colours remain the same from the Mounted Warriors, using 3 shades of Red, and skin remains the same. However I am not happy with the free hand white crosses on the shields.
I think for the next time I do some of this warband I will make templates for the shields, I think I will get a better result on them.
I have used the AK Matt Varnish as I have a lot of it, it would be a shame to not use it.
This makes 3 Points of Warriors now complete, I still have two points of Hearthguard to do, these are all mounted in two groups of four. And the commander of the warband, again he is mounted. This will give a nice little SAGA warband that I might play a game with one day.
But enough on what is left it is time to show the men.
What is on the Workbench
Time for a break on the Red and mostly Red Order of St John. I will be doing up some Battletech. I have a lance or two of Inner sphere that needs to be done, this should be a fun little job. It is also something very different to look forward to.
There is also some 15mm Medieval on the desk that I will finish off, just keep ticking over the stands of this so I can get an army together for ADLG in the future.
I have been breaking up the painting pretty well, not getting too board doing the same thing over and over, I think this has helped me keep up the motivation to keep getting things finished.
