Painting Update

Another quick update on the army.  I have completed the blouses, trousers, and boots on all the models.  Technically the helmets and belts are done as well since they are white, but I will still go back over them to cover any stray paint marks.  It is now time to start the details like epaulets and skin.  I am going to have some decent time to paint over the next few weeks and hope to have them ready for basing and wash by mid October.

The whole 2000 points nearing completion
I also finished up the banners for the army.  The guy on the left is painted in artillery colors as he will be carrying the banner for my support battalion which has all my heavy weapons in it.  I imagine that there is an artillery regiment that is providing detachments to the infantry units and he has brought the regimental standard with him.  The guy on the right is carrying a company standard in the same blue color as their trim.  Finally, the guy in the center is carrying the Praetorian XIV Regimental Colors.

  1. Love those banners. How did you get the plastic flags to go on the metal pole (or am I really that dumb?). My Praetorian Light Dragoons (Mechanised) need some regimental colours. However, I am yet to clip/other the metal poles to use the plastic Cadian flags. Love the Regiment!

    1. I actually just clipped the banner pole with the hand still attached. Then I removed the hand from the model and attached the new hand with banner.

    2. Thanks for sharing and the advice. I have a spare guy that is "squadless" I will try it on first! Cheers.
