Sorry for the delay folks! It was Cathy's birthday today, so it was a busy day in Wappelville.
You saw in the previous post that I made a bonehead mistake on my Evil roster, somehow adding 2 extra war drums! I guess I should not be entirely surprised with the pace of things these days. Bilbo's Bash is this coming weekend, and a ton of work remains to be done... Yikes!
I tried to show how I went about making the banner figure as quickly as possible, utilizing a partially painted Kataphract. I added a banner made of a Tomb Kings halberd, tin foil and green stuff.
This had to be painted in a slightly different color scheme than the other Easterling cavalry you have seen, since this guy does not have the Black Dragon upgrade. In the heat of the tournament, I don't want to forget something like that, as it it is not very fair to my opponents.
The banner was painted as close as possible to the 'official' metal version, but I wanted to add a serpent (following my story line), and have a stronger association with Sauron. Thus, the Eye of Sauron is featured, as it was on the Khandish banners.
The armor was painted less gold than the Black Dragons... almost more of a brassy look. The idea was to have them be a lower class of warrior
And yes, all the Uglies love a party! Especially when there is CAKE!
Not all terrain projects are the same. This is one of the more unusual terrain pieces I have built. :-) The little guys need a place to play, after all!
