after a short break I'm back on my paint board!

here is a squad I begin some time ago part by part that I decided to finish. my command squad.

First a group shot for a generic view:
Posted Image

Detail view of the different characters

the captain, Robert 1er d'Artois
(I put a un-primed version as it's easier to see the details)
Posted Image

I was planning to use the real heraldry of Count Robert 1st of Artois on his shield, but I must admit I have no idea how I will make the castles.


the apoticary Raynaud de Flory
the only one completed
Posted Image

the Sergent, I need a name for this one (medieval european that can be found around 1200 A.D.)
he's an ex deathwath member and wield a thunder mass
Posted Image

Standard bearer, need a name for this guy too
I will probably put the heraldry of the captain on this big banner and put something else on the captain's shield
Posted Image

Company champion, also need a name for this guy
nothing impressive, just a plain company champion
Posted Image


and finaly a generic expendable guy
I realy like him :lol:
Posted Image



I'll post finished version as soon as they are completed!

Comments and criticis (and help for the names :P) are welcomed and expected

thanks!

Nice use of templar like iconography on the banners and pauldrons to reflect the knightly feel of the squad and the use of greenstuff to add cloth over the armour.

Mind if I ask what colours and layers of paint you used for the latest guy's helmet?

EDIT: Coherency.

if your talking about the white helmet, I youse these

1 layer of astronomican grey (to cover the black and be able to put the first layer of white)
1 thin layer of white
a 50:50 azuramen blue\water wash
1 or more layer of white on the plain surface.

I like how this is coming along.
The generic marine's pose is great
"You! Yes, You! Stay there, I have something for you..."

If the Fleurs de lys will only get better, then I can't wait to see them finished.

Those checkers...so, small...hurts to think about painting...

I almost finish the champion.

after seeing the pictures I realised I still had some touch up to do with de shield, as the chapter symbole is realy messy.

I really don't know how I should make the power sword, does some of you have an idea for lightning or energy waves (don't realy know how i would made that though)

here is how it comes:

Bah! It was late and you said "Generic Veteran" in your first post, your lucky I didn't call him a Guardsman at that point <_<.


The champion looks good, but close up the lightning effect isn't as sharp as I thought. The fork of energy going off to the side looks...wrong, I can't figure out how to describe it.

Still, it's about a thousand times better then any energy effect I have tried, so take my advice however you see fit.

The Fluer de lys look fantastic ;).

thanks for the comment Leardinal, you're right about the sword, I'll have to fix it... later

here is the Sergeant veteran of the captain's command squad, his second in command, and probably his best friend.

i'm pretty happy to how the head turns out, but seeing the pic I just remark I totaly forget.... his bolter....

I love the heraldry in both design and execution. Not to mention ambition. It really makes me feel bad for being daunted by the idea of painting the single battle flag I've got designed for my Sisters army. Very neat, and also inspiring me to try to practice freehand more.

if your talking of the Fantasy bretonnian army, well no.

I'm drawing my inspiration directly from the 7th crusade and the Heraldry of the time. the bretonnian probably used the same inspiration ^_^

and like I said to philsminions, feel free to used any thing I did (after all I only re-used the historical fact ^_^)

I should soon write an article to the librarium for this chapter.

I like the guy reaching behind for his blade, that's a good action pose. Are you going to do anymore crazy heraldry guys, or is the Cross of St. George going to be the standard for the average Marine and the fancy stuff just for the Force Commander? Maybe more designs for squad leaders?

actualy, the squad has an herald that will display the Coat of arms of Pierre 1er de Bretagne one of the guy with a sword will also have a shield with that on to (it has been removed for painting purpose)

and the chapter's symbole is the Cross of Jerusalem (the ordinary battle-brothers don't have the right of bearing the full symbole with the 4 '+')
