Yellow-fication Continues

Still working on the yellow, I've managed all the Paladins and the Castellans at this point.




I also took a Seneschal a few steps further. Aside from touch-up and highlights on the metal this guy is pretty much done. Any thoughts or suggestions? The yellow turned out a little greener that I was hoping for, I was aiming for a warmer tone like the pictures of House Lakar in Codex Titanicus. It was the first time I painted yellow and also the first time I used pure white as a highlight.



The fleur de lis is a decal from Ginfritter's Gnomish Workshop. Annoyingly, you have to cut them each out which is pretty difficult as they're tiny, hard to see and extremely close together. I had some checker decals too but make those work was going to that much more difficult given the angels and curves so I ended up free handing them.

Painting Yellow, Ain't Nobody Got Time for That

I've been working on the Knights these past weeks. As a heads up, painting yellow is SLOW. You think I would have taken the Internet's word on it, but no. I didn't get a chance to paint this Monday, but last Monday I blocked out the blue and did one Knight up in yellow. I'm thinking I'm going to finish him up to get a feel for the scheme before batch painting the others. Yes, that'll likely mean this guy will be slightly different than the rest.



In other news, I'm working on the Warmonger Miniatures studio Landsknechte. I've done the skin at this point. I'm going to paint up the hair/beards and then see if it needs anymore work.
