Maybe you could model TWC-sized "were-templars" who's inner Templar took over in the fury of battle transforming them into a giant half man - half templar?

Thanks for the interest, guys! I'm way excited to get back into hobbying. I went through my models and reorganized my trays to better see what I had. After doing so, I took notes and updated my logs in the opening post to reflect exactly what I've got on my hands. I don't know how soon I'll be starting back up, as I will have to go through the paints that I found to see if there's anything salvageable (and I'll probably still have to purchase some new paints/washes/etc. as well). I took some photos of my hobby station and my models, but I've got to convert the photos to an acceptable size and file type first before I can post them here.

Incoming initial-stage photos. The ones of the foam trays are before reorganizing them; the last time I had touched these guys, I had played a small game against a buddy, and I must not have arranged them back by unit type when we were finished. I was also using them to separate bitz for each model, but smaller bitz were getting jumbled around, so I threw almost everything that wasn't glued on (and some things that were that I removed) back into my bitz bins until I manage to start finishing models. Also, please forgive the umsightly amount of animal fur clinging to the trays; that was a huge reason I stopped painting. I had to redo or retouch a coat too many times due to a stray animal hair, and it left me frustrated, so I shelved everything. Most of it is cleaned off the models, and what remains is stuck to the blu-tac I used to pose the models.

Alright, here are my individual units for my Sanguine Gargoyles army (I'll get the unit shots of my other projects later). Some of the models had blu-tac holding their arms and/or backpacks on from when I played a game with them. I removed all of it that I could find last night, so most of the models will be armless, backpackless, and in some cases headless. I'm an incredibly slow painter, because I find it hard not to try and get a perfect paintjob for every mini. I need to learn to embrace the tabletop quality mindset in order to crank out the larger squads. I have my characters and my McFarlane Intercessor to practice perfection.

Got a rough mock up of my basic color scheme put together:

It's a good colour scheme @fenrykus, though it could perhaps do with a bit of contrast imo - what would you think of a red (or company colour) helmet stripe, to draw attention to the head? Perhaps make the weapon's bronze casing a bit less dark for the same reason?

 

There's meant to be little contrast, but I understand where you're coming from. Part of the problem is that specific model. His details have been so hidden (even before I rescued him from a bitz box at a FLGS), it's not worth it to do much with him other than to test different techniques or color schemes. As I said, it's a (very) rough mock up. On a model with proper detail I'll add highlights, be a little lighter with the wash, and gun casings will probably get painted either red or orange, I haven't decided yet.

 

Edit: Here's the painter version; the chest decorations will also be painted differently, so that will help break up the darkness as well.
