Gearing up to the 2017 Epic UK tournament season the 4 of us who regularly play in the Nottingham/Mansfield/Sheffield area thought we'd each try and get a new army built and painted. To get us going we thought we would start a thread detailing the building and painting progress.

I'm doing Knights obviously using the EUK list. Pics to follow but everything has arrived and is ready to be built now
Knights are all forumware - a baron, a couple of formations of Paladins, 1 heavy weapon group and 2 formations each of errants and lancers. Supporting them are a formation of siegfrieds (original GW) and the light artillery, AA etc and also the tractors will be GHQ historicals.

Hopefully pics early next week of everything built as I decide the colour scheme.

Kyussinchains, MikeT and Dptdexys will add their projects shorty.

I'll be doing Lost and the Damned (slaanesh) based on Mike T's redux list and hopefully it will double as a Traitor Guard army without too many additions.

I will be making 4 or 5 covens with transports (using GHQ vehicles) , 6 Slaanesh Scout Titans amd 2 formations of knights plus a few Daemons.

I'm afraid I'm also working on a knight army, it will be the first part of a larger admech force which I should hopefully be able to run as AMTL, Skitarii, Knights and Krieg, basing the knights on House Raven so expect plenty of red and lots of hazard stripes ;) I was lucky to get a job lot of very nice custom made knights before they went OOP so will be using those, all the support formations will be from the GW baran siegemasters range apart from my light tanks which I'm scratchbuilding... Will get some pics after its all assembled (currently running low on superglue)

I'll be doing Onslaught-Tau, to replace my Forgeworld-Tau. Already got all the stuff from Onslaught (Vanguard minis are an awesome UK local supplier for Onslaught) so main thing holding me back is deciding on a colour scheme.

So I finally got some primer on some knights and thought I'd try out my planned scheme, I went for a dirty, well-used look inspired heavily by these fellas

So over a black primer I started with the red panels, given that red is the colour of House Raven, there's not an awful lot of coloured panels on most knights which tend to be mostly metallic skeleton with coloured armour plates, so I started with a drybrush of P3 sanguine base on the armour areas, I tried to leave the black at the edge of the plates and blend upwards for a zenithal effect, when I'd got a good browny-purple look, I switched to P3 Skorne red and built up the layers to a nice brick red, again I tried to blend towards the top, for the recessed and smaller panels, I two-brush blended skorne red onto them, the metallic areas were cleaned up with P3 thamar black, then I drybrushed P3 Pig Iron onto the larger metallic areas, and painted it around the thinner trim spots, I then used P3 armour wash on the big areas and carefully painted it into the recesses where the armour and metal panels join to give a slightly dirty look. The yellow on the chest is GW Iyanden darksun shaded with P3 heartfire

here's a couple of WIP shots

the plan is to get the other two done in a more sensible manner (do the same colours on all, etc...) then I've got 3 Errants to get done, and a whole heap of paladins to assemble and prime :)

Formula P3 is a lovely range by the way.

thanks very much guys :)

I really love my P3 paints, I use a few army painter washes but other than that I'm 100% P3 now, they even drybrush really well if you make sure you *really* empty the brush :)

so at Apoc's suggestion I added some very subtle edging to the top panels using P3 midlund flesh

Extreme closeup!!

edit: ignore the giant mould line on the top of the shield, I'll be removing all shields and cleaning them up prior to painting them... ;)
