Sorry if this is badly formatted, I'm doing it from my phone. This is what I have so far of my Vostroyan army. Most pics are of models still in process. Comments or suggestions welcome.

Is that a Vostroyan head on your commander in the first picture? If not, can I ask where it's from?

 

Anyway, that banner is really beautiful.

@Shredder:. The head is from Pig Iron Miniatures and is their Kolony Winter Militia line. I bought 40 heads for maybe $20 US with shipping. The heads are a touch smaller than GW and are a cross in looks between Vallhalan and Vostroyan.

@USN: It's all done by hand and eye. Couple tricks I use is to lightly dash on a line with a sharp tipped graphite pencil first. Then use a very fine brush and super watered down paint to make the first outside lines as guide rails. Do the whole line in one smooth stroke with even pressure. The pencil line gives you a target, the watery paint flows smoothly and prevents breaks or smears and is thinner so if you mess up it's easier to cover. Once you have the outside lines the watery paint acts as guard rails as you fill in.

@ Warrior:. There are 20 Pig Iron head retrofitted cadians in process now at the same time as the demolisher. Once both of those are done I'm gonna tackle my Vulture. After that? Mountains and mountains of grey plastic and actual Vostroyans to paint.

Nice Vostroyans there!

 

Can't wait to see more. Also thanks for the Pig Iron tip, I guess I'm making some conscripts after all.

Yay, someone else doing Vostroyans! Are you going to be using the Vostroyan doctrine?


Oh yes. Played several games with it already. Still haven't used the order but the strategem is gold and 6" of range is nothing to be sad about.

Note: A friend just linked me a preview of a new Anvil Industries head bit that is even more vostroyan looking. No idea when it releases though.

Good job so far.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.
