WIP Celestial Wizard & Ballhead Knights

Some updates of my Empire!

Here is my 2nd wizard in the works. I'm done with the flesh. Next is to highlight the cloak. With the airbrush! Heheheh.....

My Ballhead Knights are distracting me too much so I answered their call and went ahead to paint them alongside my Wizard.

It took me awhile to decide on the colour scheme for them. Initially wanted black armour with white trimmings but decided not to as it would mean I could not have black horses. Too much black and no contrast makes the whole model look too boring.

So I went about looking at real pictures of knights and found that almost all of them were simply in heavy armour and almost totally just silver.
Thinking it would be cool to try and paint up a majority silver model. I went ahead and simply did all metal parts, simply silver.
Before Badab black wash.
After Badab black wash.
I'm quite happy with the results and can't wait to highlight the silver back up to it's bright and shiny glory!!

  1. I find the Knight's armor of real life a bit too shiny. The Empire 'Ballhead' Knights look like they are coming along very nicely!

    I like the toned down effect that Badab Black wash gives. Makes the armor looks weathered but not rusty ;)
