My lethargic painting progress continues as I have now managed to finish the figures in the starter set for my Shattered Sword figures. Aside from the usual issues that limit my painting time, I also spent a fair bit of hobby time assembling the rest of my Relic Knights figs. Now that they are all primed and ready to paint I should be able to get a few more figures done.
All of these minis were primed white and painting them just reminded me of how much I loathe painting over white primer. Every tiny spot you miss pops out from the figure and it really highlights that rather cavalier way in which I paint. I also painted these troops up as traditional knights mostly to speed the process up but also because I really like how metallic armour looks.
Francis Malory is actually a very nicely sculpted figure and unlike a lot of the smaller Relic Knights figures he has some good definition in his face. The Paragons in the background are a bit of a mishmash of a paint scheme. I started them first and really couldn’t decide what colours to use or what to use as the primary colour and so they got painted over with the metallic base after an unsuccessful initial attempt. There is some precise details on the front of their shields that I really couldn’t pick out well enough so it was left without any paint on it.
These are a bit of a rush job (for me that is) and I will be taking my time with the rest of the Shattered Sword figures I have.
But first, the Noh starter.
