Landsknechts Casualty Markers


As some of you might have seen, the only thing I managed to finish during my involuntary absence was a Christmas gift for Dalauppror in the form of some casualty markers for his splendid German mercenaries. There were four miniatures in the pack and as I have ... let's say "future plans", I decided to paint the other two for myself.


The miniatures are from Artizan and the bases are from the clever folks at Warbases.


As I was in a bit of a hurry, I tried to cut some corners with the finishing of the basing. Unfortunately, I don't think it worked very well and I'm not entirely happy with how the bases turned out. Another lessoned learned!

This was my final regular update for 2013. Tomorrow I will post some thoughts of the year that has passed, and then in a couple of days my plans for 2014.

Until then!

  4. Love these. They are clever, neat and look so much better on the table compared to the many other solutions available. Especially like the color grading you’ve achieved on the white (color nerd as I am). What is the grey-sandy color you’re using as base coat under the white high light?

    1. Thanks Sören!

      These are painted very quickly using Army Painter washes over the basic colours, and then highlighted back with slightly watered down basic colours so as to blend the layers together. (However, the skin parts are Foundry's Flesh triad, straight out of the pots.)

      In the case of the (off-)white, the basic colour is Foundry Arctic Grey A and the wash is Army Painter Soft Tone.
