Just so you're aware, Mantic have a huge supplement called 'Armies of Pannithor' about eight weeks away (maybe less) which introduces something like 10+ more lists to the game. Kingdoms of Men are in there, as are the two divisions of Brotherhood and the Varangur.

If you're on FB keep an eye on the Kings of War Fanatics page for army previews from the upcoming supplement.

Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater either way - you've done a phenomenal job with this project and there are already rules to use for these guys (they would be well fielded as Basileans, for example). :)

I have really enjoyed this thread and your work has inspired me to buy some Oathmark figures-you have made them look superb! I must say the women's heads look like they came as part of the kit or did you buy them separately?

Thanks for the kind words, appreciated!

I *really* wish that the Oathmark figs came with women's heads, but sadly they didn't. I picked up some of the female head sprus from Statuesque miniatures. I believe the ones I picked up were Heroic Scale NARROW helmetless, which are large enough to work well with basically any of the modern plastic figures available today, including the Oathmark figs. They are sci-fi heads, but the helmetless ones work for your basic poor medieval troops I think; their modern hairstyles are more believable than dragons in my eyes :D It's very important to note though that *the neck posts on the female heads are quite long and need to be cut down to look proper*. If you don't cut the posts, they'll have abnormal-looking high heads.

My method was to ball up some putty and put it in the head hole, flatten if down, cut about 2mm off of the neck post of the head and just stick it in. Take a moment to position it correctly and then use a sculpting too to make it look more like the surrounding cloth. Viola, done. The statuesque heads are just great and I ordered thirty of them for various projects to add women into my miniature world.

Here's a great link to scale pictures of the Statuesque heads: http://khorosho-productions.blogspot.com/p/comparison-photos.html

I finished another figure for this project recently... A foot knight for the Bretonnians!

I really wanted a foot knight, but the eBay price for the old GW figs was just too much... So I looked at Norba, Reaper, and others, and found these fantastic Bretonnian-inspired knights sculpter by Werner Klocke and thought they looked fantastic and fit the bill well.





I have like eight more to paint... haha.

Thanks

That's a great choice for a foot knight, and the paint job you gave it is superb! The scene for the photo is great, too.

Excellent paintjob!
If I may say, I would not recommend buying from Norba. I've heard many complaints about terrible casting and poor customer treatment.

Thanks for the kind words, and also for the warning. That's too bad... but I'll steer clear.

Thanks
