Saga C&C in Westeros
« on: September 07, 2014, 10:29:22 AM »
I want to share some pictures of my new project.
After a year of painting almost only ECW stuff, I decided that my FireForge boxes and Perry WotR boxes would go to different sides of Saga crescent and cross style Westeros wargaming.

As Saga has even reached my quiet home in Bremen, that seemed the decision to be made.

First I built the whole two FireForge boxes to have
2*4 knights on foot
4*8 warriors on foot
4*12 levies
sowie die 12 knights on horses

First pictures:




My interpretation of a standard of the Iron Islands


And, as time went by after shooting pictures there is one finished warrior of house Hornwood of Hornwood.


The picture is too dull, I know, I'll try to learn.
Btw: The shield was made using a decal of schildschmie.de

More to follow

Some sweet looking plastic there. I like the painted example you've done. I look forward to seeing how they look in a group. I really liked the terrain in the background.

Thanks!

I wanted to present frequent updates and so I made progress with my first warrior unit. Decals nicely done, shields done and the only thing left was to take away the shine from the shield. So I took the spray can and .... o_o  ... ruined them all.

So I have to try to remake them after the desaster. I swear I will not use these spray cans any more.

Please note: I was not using primer instead of finish  lol

Hope to write again soon..

Thanks, work is going on - and successful, I think.

Have to leave home tomorrow for some days. Next weekend it has to be before posting pictures.

Cheers

Allmost Weekend:

Here are the pictures of the saved accident victims.















Hope you like them.

btw:
The GW guy in our local GW shop told me, that he advises everybody to test spray on some plastic material everey time they intend to finish any of their minis, because things like my incident happen frequently.

Cheers

They look great!  Did you fashion decals for the house sigils? They look so nicely uniform to be freehand.  Do share!

Thanks!

They are decal-made indeed.

I searched for proper pictures on the net and gave the adresses to schildschmie.de for special fireforge foot soldier shield decals.
They do a splendid job. They have added these to their program as The North.

Steil! They look sharp. I had an artist friend create similar for Lannister, Stark and Greyjoy. He passed away last year and, not surprisingly, the wind went out of my hobby sails for a while. I have a similar vendor to make the shield transfers so maybe I'll go find similar art. Would you care to share your art for Stark bannermen (Manderly, Mallister, et al?)  Maybe we could divide and conquer, then swap?  I'd like to gather 6 for each major house to use as "household" knights in elite formations in Dux Britannarium or Saga.
