The last of my unpainted Bretonnian knights! After a mere twelve of these, I'm finally in a position to say that they in fact aren't all that hard to paint! I had fun with these even though I kept it to a very historically-inspired paint scheme.

Another DBA-sized base of Bretonnian archers, and this one even has four figures on it! I went for a little more figs on the base just because I'm not as interested in economizing bases anymore, and because it looks good. I painted these ones exactly for the Hundred Years War, which the sculpting clearly based on.

Here's a 40mm square filler base to expand the previous DBA base into a Kings of War sized base. Again, I put three on here instead of the two that I put previously, and these are also painted for the Hundred Years War. I'm pretty happy with them, although I've been thinking that I might start blending more...

The new with the old in a big jumbled group of archers. These figs work great for fantasy or Hundred Years War British easily, and the denser bases play well with the more sparsely figured ones too. I'm liking this picture, although I need to get more light on the legs I think...

My fifth element - in DBA terms - of knights. I stayed with the DBA basing, since it works so well with kings of war, and I can always use it for DBA at some other point. I'm pretty happy with these, and it's crazy that it's been over a year since last I painted a Bretonnian!

A close-up of the front view of the knights. Note the horns on the one helmet; I went with a realistic look! I'm pretty happy over all.

Here's a close-up image of he barding on one of the horses. It shows the brush strokes that I use for the heraldry as well as the black tail. It's also possible to see the brush strokes on the barding itself if you look closely.

All the knights on the march! All in all I've painted ten knights at this point... That's not even two Warhammer regiments!

When I first saw this figure I immedietely liked it. That was more than a few years ago, so it was nice to get around to actually painting it finally. It turned out to be a bit of a challenege to paint... It's just so busy; all the GW characters are so busy. To counter that, I painted it simply. It's a late autumn colour composition. I' pretty happy with the way it turned out in the end.

This is my fourth HotT element of knights for my Bretonnians. It will also transform my previous three Bretonnian elements into a single Bretonnian knight regiment for Kings of War, which is exactly why I painted it up. It's also part of the command group, thus the horn there... I'm very happy with it, it's a bit snappier than my previous knights, and I think it's primarily because of all of the black lines separating the colours and outlining the devices on the shields... Note to self: black lines make for snappier figures!

Here's an obligatory shot of the full regiment of knights for Kings of War... turns out that 120mm is the width of a standard Warhammer/Kings of War cavalry regiment of 10 knights in a 5x2 formation! Lucky me that that's exactly the size of four 28mm HotT elements! Although, I can't imagine putting another figure per column... how could horses realistically move and fight in such a tight formation?

With Kings of War you need characters, and here's my first character painted specifically for the KoW action. She's sculpted by Sandra Garity, and although I thought she'd be kinda mediocre looking, I think she works perfectly for this role! She certainly stands up to the figures in the army so far, but has that extra little fantasy quality that every character figure should have in a fantasy army! The banner is actually a print out of my previous banner, and I thin it worked pretty well, although I will shrink the size of the banners, since it's very large.

A few more mercenary archers for the Bretonnians. I always have trouble with mercenary banners, but I'm pretty happy with this one. Still it shows devotion to the Lady, but with a warlike mercenary twist. I stole the design shamlessly from some random t-shirt with the fleur de lise skull motif. These guys will help transform my HotT mercenary elements into a Kings of War regiment with a banner.

The second 40mm by 40mm base of archers to transform my Bretonnian mercenary archers into a Kings of War regiment. These were fun to paint again after over a year since I painted the last ones. I went with a slightly simpler colour scheme executed by removing a few colours.

Here's a shot of the two HotT elements and the two 40mm square elements working together to form a single Kings of War regiment of archers. Again, the footprint suggests the required 20 figures while the actual figure count is ten. Oh well, it works for me! The defensive stakes make them as effective as a similar regiment of 20 figures without the stakes ;)

Another 40mm square base to convert my two levy archer HotT elements into a Kings of War regiment. I decided that these guys would have a simple banner, given that they're just levy archers I figured that their lord wouldn't splurge for a fancy emroidered banner! The dead guy is another archer slightly converted, but I am happy with it. I really like the faded black and red look!

The final 40mm square base of levy archers. These are the white and black levies who will join the red and black levies to form the KoW regiment. I enjoyed painting these for sure.

Here's the levy archer regiment for Kings of War all assembled up. I like them, and I dare any bold knights to charge them!

The entire Bretonnian Hordes of the Things army. It was fun to paint, but I am glad it's ready. Of course, I have some extra knights yet, and I may paint up some more for an option or two, but it's done for now!

The whole view of the Hero King element for my Bretonnian HotT army. This is the usurper king who claims the Bretonnian crown through some obscure lineage. Too impatient to lead the army himself, he leaves those details to lesser me and charges into the ranks of the enemy, sword blazing!

Some close ups of the usurper king himself. This figure was converted from a standard 5th edition plastic knight of Bretonnia. I used some Empire Militia bits for the head and the right arm, and some eagle wings for the wings. Everything else (cloak, chain mail coif/head cover) were greenstuff additions. Overall, I am pretty happy with how it turned out.


Bretonnian Army from Old Glory Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Bretonnian Army  -  Posted: October 20, 2009  -  Manufacturer: Old Glory Miniatures
This was the last element I painted for the army. It is a horde element to allow me to field the 3AP paladin option. The figures are from Old Glory and are titled revolting women and children. I am sure the name is meant to have a double meaning, as these are most certainly the worst 28mm production figures I have ever painted! Still, they have a lot of character and bring a certain trashy element to the army!

The general of my Bretonnian army and the standard bearer of the army. The general figure is a grail knight champion that I really liked and thought suited the bill for commander. For this army, the concept is that one of the lords of Bastonne thinks that he should be king, not king Louen... So, he appointed this champion as his general, and assigned his standard bearer to him... Anyway, I am happy with the way it turned out, and the banner worked out well, and is a bit fancier than the banner held by the spearmen as well. Note that only two figures fit on a base; they're just too big!

A couple more knights making up another knight element for my Bretonnian HotT army. I really like the cahracter of these figures, especially the awesome head gear. Most people think that it's pure fantasy, those crazy head pieces, but it's not. Late medieval, early renaissance knights did indeed have sport some pretty crazy head dresses. Overall, I am pretty happy with these figs!

Another couple knights making up the third of the knight elements that will form part of the Bretonnian HotT army. This one I put a little more time into heraldry than the previous element. Overall, I think this is my favourite knight element in the army! Lots of fun to paint.

A Bretonnian paladin for sure, this figure is Jeanne d' Arc, Joan of Arc from Perry's Hundred Years War range of miniatures. I wuite like it, and it fits the Bretonnians in armour and spirit perfectly! It's based for skirmings, but I have a couple of HotT conversion bases so I can field this in my Bretonnian HotT army. Overall, I am pretty happy with how she turned out.

This is my favourite element of spearmen for my Hordes of the Things Bretonnian army. I decided that these spearmen would be here with the army's general, who in my version of the story recently took hold of the Duchy of Bastonne, replacing his cousin through murder and treachery! Aside from that, I enjoyed very much doing the heraldry for these. I purposed picked the coolest design/colours for the element, and it corresponds to a real Bretonnian knight as well. There are no decals, it's all freehand. I should also point out that these are not GW figures, but Perry miniatures. They work extremely well and are crazy cheap compared to the Bretonnian spearmen!

This is a close up of the freehand (no photoshop, no computer printed banner, freehand painted!) banner for this element. It was a pleasure to do, but the diamonds were somewhat tedius.

The second set of spearmen for my Hordes of the Things Bretonnians. I really like these Perry miniatures for so many reasons. It's awesome that they look so unmotivated. They personify the way I would feel in their position... "Hey Braithwell, I don't want to go attack those skeleton hordes... Why don't we just leave now?" This elements hails from the Duchy of Couronne, the King's Duchy. As such, they are going against their Duke and their King in this little rebellion! Again, it's all freehand, no decals.

After doing the mercenaries (later in this gallery) who have bright colours and snazzy uniforms, I figured I would do some peasants. Not really primarily fighters they don't put a lot of money into their fighting atire. As such, their stuff is faded, their helmet's are chipped, their uniforms don't really match all that well, and they generally would rather be at home. But still, after all of that, their colours match the heraldry of their Bretonnian Lords pretty well. I wish I had a fig of these with a guy sneaking out the back, that would be me ;)

More peasant archers, these serving another lord. Again, faded colours, mismatched uniforms, dented helmets and the heraldry of their Bretonnian overlords. Overall I really like the look of these figs.

I painted these older (Warhammer 2nd edition?) plastic archers in the style of the day: bright colours that like to clash! Not at all in the heraldry of the current incarnation of Bretonnia really. I imagine them as mercenaries. Given their success against knights, these guys realized that money was to be made inside Bretonnia, helping one Duke resolve the border disputes with another... These are based for Hordes of the Things (HotT), but are compatible with Warhammer as well.

Another element of mercenary archers for HotT (but compatible with Warhammer). Again, I stuck with the crazy bright colours of the classic Warhammer look.

The group of mercenary archers together lined up and ready for some action. Overall the effect of the wooden stakes works pretty well.
