Hi all!

If you read Kędzior's battle report you probably already saw my Mortan army. But those models weren't painted by me - I bought them in that shape. So I'm going to clean them, repaint and share results. Just to make a little traffic in this forum Wink

I was inspired by a warband I found somewhere in this forum (but I don't remember who did it, sorry) and tried to achieve similar effect. Note that I'm not the best painter out there (I'm aiming for solid table top level) and I can't do photos Tongue So minis look better in real.

Oh, and the armor is cooper, not gold, but "Golden Legion" sounds better Tongue

And after that long introduction: the Praetorian Carnifexers:

That's all for now. Next - our dear and humble Legionnaires.

Historians say, the name Golden Legion Comes from the fact that they only accept payment in form of pure gold...

Nice job done!

Interesting colour choice, looking forward to seeing the legionnaires! Smile

So this is the new shiny food for my hungry Reavers? Big Grin
They look nice, it's great that you started painting. Maybe we'll try to make some better photos of them while we play the next time.

Good!

Since previous posts are gone it's time to remind everyone what I've done:

1) Legionnaires. Honestly, I think they are the weakest models from Mortan range. And it was really frustrating to paint them. But finally here they are.

2) Centurion. I got so angry with my inability to paint his right eye, that I decide to greenstuff it and made Roman Slade Wilson Tongue

3) Coming up next:

Princeptor is done, but I had no time to make some photos. But that way I have fully painted 300-points warband. Pics coming soon.

Right now I'm painting a Xisteri Bombers unit. with some luck, they should be ready in next week or two (man, they have so much detail that it could get annoying Tongue )

So, finally I had some time so update this topic:

Princeptor is done. Despite the weird face I really like that model. Maybe I went with too much drybrush at the end, but still, I'm quite happy with him.

And that's how my Legion rose up to fully painted 300 points! So tonight, we dine in hell!

But more are coming. Here's a WIP of the next unit, and in the background you can see something more waiting in line Wink
