Thanks! Big Grin

I've been working on this army some more, and I really need your help! For my Flaggelant unit I want to use these models:



Angry housewives! I have 6 of each of those models, but it would be boring to have so many duplicates in the unit. So do you guys have any genious ideas how to convert these Halflings?

And finally I have a little army picture of what I have finished so far:

RE: Empire BlogMoltan 02-22-2011

Could try head-swaping or giving them big spoons rollinpins ect, the one with the cask of wine (if you are up to the task lol) could be cut away or turned into holding washed cloths or something like that, maybe even holding a pig or sheep on her shoulder.

ya could get some male halflings and turn them into housewifes too.

on a funny idea give them all plucked-chickens for weapons lol

Thanks for the ideas! Big Grin

Because I don't want to start working on my Flaggelants yet, I've been rethinking my colourscheme. The army is very dark because I just a lot of dark, natural colours, and that's why I miss the contrast to make the army an eyecatcher. I'm thinking of adding some blue to my units to make them pop a little more. I tried to show what I mean with Photoshop. What do you guys think? Is the blue too much, or does it make the model a little more interesting?

RE: Empire BlogHashut's Blessing 02-23-2011

I think that the blue does help, but it also could be a little darker if you didn't want it to be too bright.

I think that hacving so much of the dark green is the real problem, rather than not having enough brightness. A replacement to the green on the sleeves is certainly good, but could remain equally dark to keep the realistic nature of the colourscheme.

Regardless, looks excellent!

RE: Empire BlogBolg 02-23-2011

an extra color might be a good idea. but that blue is most defiantly not the right color. there is som red in our army already, try the army red en highlight a bit brighter. or maybe shadow gray with white. always word well with dark colors.

RE: Empire BlogBassman 02-24-2011

I do agree with Bolg and Hashut's... this blue is a no.
I would second Bolg, try a brighter red. Green and red work really well together. You can also warm up the greens.. yes it will be less realistic but will attract the eye better.

Yeah, the blue on the Photoshop image is a little bit too bright. I was thinking about a more greyish blue like on the Wizard and Free Company champion.

To me it seems that the green is neutral enough to add a little more color, and red doesn't really work. It's still too dark...

RE: Empire Blogbas_2312 03-01-2011

A little update. I've haven't been working on the Flaggelants, but I have finished a Warrior Priest. So I made a crappy picture...



And I have another question. I still have to think of a design for the shields in my army, but I'm not really inspired.. Would this be too cheesy?

IMO the knife and fork would look great for the sheilds! Maybe even unit specific designs?

I like tjub's idea to use a diffrent design for each unit. Moltan already gave to alternatives for it.

RE: Empire Blogbas_2312 03-03-2011

I think I will paint a few different design on the shield. Chickens, fish bones, forks etc. The Greatswords will all get the knife and fork design because they're more organised.

But work on the Halflings has halted once again, because I've been distracted by something else...

So I've started working on my Halflings once again. But for now I don't have any progress pictures. Instead, a pic from todays battle vs. Bolg. Some very cute Halflings getting eaten by Big Uns and Bull Centaurs :'(
