On with the crusaders for Saga C&C! We decided to play the old system more often in 2018 before the new one gets its feet to the ground.
Here they are: 1 point of sergeants of the Knights Templar:









They look stunning, but bin the daft looking bright green edges to their bases.

What would you suggest? Khaki? Sand? Black?

Michi, in my 'umble opinion try one in either khaki or sand. To be fair it's nowt to do with me as they're your models, but to me, the green looks very seventies Warhammer!

You hit the nail. Itīs green due to gaming and blending on a GW static grass mat...  ::)
However I do prefer playing on a proper desert table with them and will therefore consider painting the edges to blend with the base itself.

Thank you!  :)

Yes, when you first see that green it does catch you out and go 'ouch!'.
A sandy/khaki colour would be more sympathetic.
I hear that the green suits the game cloth better, but there will still be a contrast because of the sandy flocking you've done.
But you never know - you may get a new game cloth at some point. So it would probably be for the best if the edges suited the basing material rather than the cloth.

Anyway.

Yes, they are bloody lovely looking miniatures. Great stuff.

Excellent muted red Michi, I might give that a go.

I usually go for over the top bright and hope it doesn't look too orange.

I don't mind the green- compliments the sand base nicely 8), however my preference these days is black edges on bases (it goes with everything!).

I do like black on the rims of the bases, it sets them apart from the table. Like this:



or you can do this and have them blend in

I did a test on the first of the Knights Templar. I like the khaki better than the green, but would hardly go any lighter. What do you think?

Looks better than the green for sure.

Why don't you want to go any lighter though? I think lighter would look better!

Though I would put my vote in for black edges - that's what I do.

A dark rich brown could also work well...

And oh yeah... nice minis!
