Painted Armies

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Aug 09, 2019 7:09 pm

Everyone,

At some point over the next few months I am getting the second edition Darklands / Savage Hordes books ready for publication.

One of the cool things I'd like to do is get hosts that are already out there and painted nicely by you lot into the book, featuring the person that painted / uses that host (which will be professionally photographed of course) and allowing them a few words as well.

I spoke briefly about this to a couple of people at Coffa Tree but I'd like to formally extend my invitation here.

Now, ideally I'd like one person/host for each kindred, so here's who I'd like to feature.

Here's an important point: IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOUR PAINTING SKILL IS! I want to feature real people with real armies who have painted them themselves. Having said that, if you express interest and it is two coats of grey and a crap drybrush, you're not going to make the cut. Bear that in mind!


Albainn -
Anglecynn -
Atalantes - James Polmear (maybe)
Brythoniaid - Jon Chester (confirmed)
Byzantii - Dayle Archer (confirmed)
Érainn - Scott Atkinson (confirmed)
Fomoraic - Hugh Badham (confirmed)
Infernii -
Jutes - Christian Hacon [aka Bish]
Khthones - Rob Lane (confirmed)
Norse - Tim Fisher (confirmed)
Vras - Paul Bannon (confirmed)
Ysians - Andy Parkinson (confirmed)
Sell-Swords -


If you're listed here, please take the time to confirm your interest or not.

If you're not listed here, and you have a host that fits the bill, and you're halfway through it or intend to be halfway through it, then please let me know if you're interested. Ideally you need to have painted armies before and finished them; if you think you can't make it, then don't say - let someone else fit the bill.

FIRST COME FIRST SERVED!

Host pointers:
1 - We do need to have a viable 1,500 gold host, no more no less, so if you've painted more you have a choice to make as to what to feature; if you haven't and want to be featured, get painting!
2 - Small conversions are allowed, but you can only use Darklands components to make that conversion
3 - Miniatures from other companies are definitely not allowed
4 - Each miniature needs to be based on Darklands bases and nothing else; ridiculous basing on inches-high rocks will ensure a rejection and possibly a slap for committing a Base Crime
5 - If you live overseas and fancy joining in, that's fine, but you'll have to come over here for the photography

Now, we can photograph your army and yourself no later than March 2020, so you've time to finish it if you wish; definitely no later than that. If it can be done earlier that's fine, but ideally I want the photographer to do it in early 2020 as there's no need until then.

Cheers
Rob

Nice one Jon.

Something I forgot to add:

I'll need a few words from you as to why you love Darklands, why you chose your kindred and why you chose your colour scheme, plus anything else you might want to throw in there!

Not now, when the time comes.

Cheers
Rob

If Paul decides to go for Vras and you need a Byzantii force Rob I can provide that for you. Of course first refusal to people not already putting their hat in the ring

I'm happy to do Erainn or Fomoraic, or both, I already have them all painted and ready to be photographed, and you know me I'm not short on a few words...lol

Happy to put my hand up for the Albainn, although being in the colonies (Australia specifically) physically getting to other side of the world for a photo shoot may be problematic.

Milord, umm, well you see ever since they closed down the resin mines i haven't had much work and times have been tough.
So, i would be ever so grateful if i could paint some of them infernii up right nice for you.
I will work ever so hard and make sure they look good enough for your magic picture box.
