  1. Hey all... I have a ... uh, war-band? Army? Regiment? Buncha? anyway, whatever the unit size in Warlord is back when Reaper did the boxes that were 10 regular troops, a lieutenant, and a leader (and a familiar). I don't play Warlord, but I would like to use the minis on the tabletop for AD&D games. While I'm OK with painting the 2 commanders (Nirodiel and Danithal) individually, "character level" if you will, the other elves I would prefer just to get done. Any tips anyone can share? What shade should I start with, etc.
  2. I have never painted tabletop armies. Would it be okay to paint them not uniformly, but still recognizably on the same side? I have contemplated painting up some historical army figures. In my experience between the vagaries of natural dyes, sun fading, washing or not washing, and luck, not one soldier is likely to have had a uniform whose colors were exactly identical to any others' (at least before the twentieth century, and maybe not even then if Bill Mauldin is anything to go by). I see painters agonizing to remember what colors they used so all their soldiers will match, and I remember how dramatically differently different dye lots can color fabrics. I think a close-but-not-matching color might make an army look more realistic, not less. On the other hand, as I have said, I have never painted a tabletop army, and I might be being fussy or making things too complicated. May I ask experienced army painters their opinions of the wisdom and sanity of this idea?
  3. It's another month and time to kick things off. Last Month I got 4 figures painted. Woot! Let's see what this month brings. Have at it!
  4. Ok I'll kick it off. It is a month of touch up and add ins and with 6th ed 40K I'm working on my first love: MAHREENS! No real goals as much as I'll see where this month takes me.
