Wow, stunning return to Bretonnia! I'm looking to get into KoW myself, so this thread is just the kind of inspiration I need!

Okay,

The next Lord that I am working on is Lord Ravenwand, cousin of Lord Stroud (see the red-and-black knight/men at arms earlier in the thread). I will be putting together a unit of spears, likely archers, and also a unit of knights lead by Lord Ravenwand!

This was meant to be an entry in this LPL as well, but I didn't make it in time :(

First up are the spear-armed foot.
  • I wanted women, using Statuesque female heads, green stuff, and something to cut the neck posts, I added two so far.
  • I needed more Bretonnian-style shields, so added them using sheet styrene/plasticard, a knife, and a hole punch.

I'm very happy with them so far! Only seven or so more figs and I'll be ready to base them up!













Thanks

Really good looking figures - both the customisation and the painting. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the army.

Thanks for the kind words.

The Oathmark figures screamed out Bretonnians to me when I first saw them. I think they actually make better Bretonnian men-at-arms than the actual Bretonnian men-at-arms.

Very nice painting! How do they scale with the regular Bretonnian Men At Arms? The Oathmark plastics all strike me as being 25mm scale.

Fantastic paint job, as per usual, Neldoreth! I have been painting quite a lot of oldhammer Bretonnians latelym, but not that many of the plastic ones, as I find them somewhat lacking in poses and definition.

How do the Oatmark miniatures match with the GW miniatures? Surely they are a bit smaller, right?

Thanks for the kind words gents/ladies!

Good question about scale; I haven't actually stood them side-by-side yet, but now I will dig out the Bretonnians and take some pictures, and post them here when they're ready. That being said, they feel exactly the same. I almost feel like they are the same figures to be honest... or rather like a more characterful second-working of them...

Pictures tomorrow!

Thanks again,

Here's the scale image of the Oathmark figs along side some trashed Bretonnians and one Empire handgunner. The picture is poor, but I hope it shows that the Oathmark figure's have a scale that's a near perfect match!



Thanks

I cracked the new Koings of War book today for the first time and was chagrined to find that there are no lists for the Kingsoms of Humans... They are listed in the force background sections, but they don't have any corresponding army lists in the book! They are the only faction that doesn't have one...

Or did I miss it? Should I use Basilea in the mean time? Anyone else have any  issues with the KoW rules?

Thanks

I think the Kingdom of Men list is going to be in the first supplement. The new rulebook only has lists for those armies that Mantic actually produce figures for?

Yeah, it seems that way... I guess that's their privilege, since it's their game, and especially now that they have figures for so many factions.

It's too bad though, since they are listed in the background section, but not in the army lists... But the question for me is should I bother continuing this project? To be honest I haven't actually played anything in years, and I probably won't be done this project before they produce a list anyway... but if they never produce a list, then I'm better off working on other projects?

Thanks
