So the unboxing has passed, and time has been spent assembling, priming, and now painting my Relic Knights.
Those are just of a few of my Shattered Sword pieces. For those wondering why the big guy in the back is missing an arm it's because I opted to leave it off until I got the full thing painted as it got in the way of some detail. I'm hoping to play Shattered Swords at Gen Con 2014, so most of my pictures are going to be focusing on them.
Getting the mold lines off the pieces is slightly easier than the Sedition Wars models, and I have to wonder if that has to do with their placement. Speaking of which the placement does actually seem to be better for these models as well.
The first part of my cadre (as your group is called in Relic Knights) is just a simple squad of Sword Sworn. I wanted to tinker a bit with the colors using white and blue as my primaries with gold as a backup.
The capes came out very well, and what you see above is all the loose capes for my Shattered Swords. I decided to just sit and spend an evening getting them painted and get them out of the way rather than coming back and doing a little here and there. Overall they look nice, but here's how they look when attached to the Sword Sworn:
I think the gold can work really well as a light trim, but I think it'll be a fine line between heroic warrior and minor league baseball team.
I picked up a small commission to strip the paint from some OGRE infantry a friend picked up. This will eventually lead to another OGRE painting commission I'd wager.
