Fixing The Terrain

I am still slowly painting miniatures for various projects too, but something that has been bothering me for quite a while now is how I treated my terrain boards when I first wanted to add gras to it. I had never done this properly before and therefor I think I messed them up good. I have managed to always keep this fairly invisible in my pictures but The day would always come that I would have to redo it.

I dreaded doing it for quite some time because it feels like a huge timesink and I frankly don't really have the space to do it in. But today I have begun the venture into new and better terrain nonetheless.

Cleaning the boards as they were was the first big step. I made use of the nice weather to grab some sun while I was at it.

After cleaning them they look somewhat decent again. When they are dry I will move on to the next steps.

Knights, Always More Knights

It was time to create another red knight. Slowly but surely I am expanding the red forces. There is still a lot to be done but i'm sure i'll finish this army sooner than the last one. I am just mixing them up with templars now to not paint the same each time. This guy is based of the new conquest knights with a lot of modifactions. I often replace the torso's entirely so they look less silly.

My First Templar

Hey there,

Some time ago I bought me this set of miniatures because I really liked their look.

It is a set made by Gripping Beast and I really think it is one of the best kits they have ever made. Even the box they come in looks really nice. I wish they would do more like these.

Recently though I started working a lot with the conquest horses and I started altering models to fit on them. I raise them a bit so they are just as tall as the Fireforge ones and at first glance it is hard to tell the difference. I do like them a lot more than the Fireforge ones.The horses that come with this kit are fine. I believe a lot of the footsore miniatures sit on the same ones but they just dont match the other plastic ones I have used so far.  I want my templars to also fit in with my current models so I started working on them to fit on the conquest horses.
I also wouldn't be me if I didnt alter these to my own personal flavour a bit.

Here is the first one.
