Title: Crusaders for Outremer: Faith & Blood
Post by: Arche Seleukeia on January 10, 2020, 02:52:36 PM
I have started painting my Baron's War kickstarter pledge as participants in the third crusade for Outremer: Faith & Blood.
The leader is Conrad Montferrat but the rest are made up characters, I will add some other historical characters later.

Thank you for the kind replies! Here are some better images of Conrad and Hughes Cox.

Very nice work   8)

What else is in them pipeline?

Two foot knights are currently on the painting desk, after that I'll likely paint some men-at-arms. Then I'll tackle mounted knights. My pledge was very big, so there is plenty to paint, but my goal is to paint up a playable band asap.

Finished two more knights for the band, a knight from Tripoli and another French/English (French) knight. Hoping to finish a templar before going on a long work trip soon.

Great painging. I am a huge fan of that the footsore crusader miniature. I wish Footsore would make more miniatures for that periode.

I asked as soon as i saw the mini was available. They said there weren't any plans to do a range.

I really hope they do too. It makes financial sense too as in the USA The Crescent and the Cross is played much more then Saga, or so I have read.

I got an update from the Kickstarter the other day with pictures of crossbowmen. I am not sure if this means another Kickstarter or just a couple of packs will be released by Footsore.  I am looking forward to crossbowmen since I have started painting my figures as Spanish.

Afaik I think everything new for the Baron's War will be added to a second kickstarter. Which is fine by me. The first worked perfectly / with a speedy delivery!

It will likely be a new kickstarter, I'm scrambling to find spare funds for it.

Agreed, my only complaint would be the lack of padding. My bishop arrived broken, as did two replacements.

Yeah, the cross of my bishop was broken too. The package was not superbest. I didn't ask for a replacement. I haven't fixed it, but I hope the cross will be easly fixed.

My Bishop also had a bent to broken cross.  I need to pin it.  He is a high priority figure as I worked out his color scheme mostly.  He was going to be English but then I read the 1212 graphic novel by Jesus Cano de la Iglesia!

Thank you all for the kind response. My favourite miniature from the second Barons War kickstarter was the kneeling or praying knight. It was a real pleasure to paint and I'm definitely getting another to convert in the future. Started painting four more figures, managed to finish the crossbow man.

Title: Re: Crusaders for Outremer: Faith & Blood
Post by: Arche Seleukeia on May 01, 2022, 12:03:33 PM
Four new miniatures done and some better photography of previous ones. I have also decided to rebase my miniatures on 25mm bases to suit the Barons War rules.

Awesome models.  What is your base recipe?
Vallejo German camouflage beige as a base, washed with Citadel Agrax earthshade, heavy drybrushing with Citadel Ushabti bone and then another lighter drybrush using Vallejo Ivory.

Splendid looking knight! How did you get his cloak to look so real? Also, how did you paint your Templars? I need to paint mine but have been putting it off as I want to get their colours right.

Perhaps he's one of those guys who just can't grow a beard to save their lives? That must be truly awful when surrounded by big beards.
