My Brets

Since I had them, I thought I'd add a few pics of my current bret force. Maybe one day I'll even be free on a Thursday or Saturday to make it to Compleat.

Quite striking! The green gemstone throughout really sets it off. Also cool idea using Celestine (?) As a counts-as pegasus rider.

Thanks -- and yeah, it is Celestine. The wings are from crocodile games. Together with the arm swap (for the lance) and little ribbon on the front, they manage to cover up the "tech" bits, so I didn't need to file anything off.

Okay, i've made a bit more progress with the army (and introduced a digression). I like the new empire kits, and I have a few empire models lying around, so I figured I'd start an army with the new book. However, because I like the bret models more than the empire knight models, mine are going to be "border princes" with a bit of both worlds. And also, my gryphon model is becoming a rooster-gryph (patent pending).

He's even got horse hooves, and (hopefully) will be posed so that he's just touching down or taking off with only his front left foot on the ground -- assuming my basing skills can live up to it. I also need to find a bret model that fits the saddle. I just got a bunch of questing knights and the older knights, so maybe kit bash with those.

Also, I've been working on the long-term bases for my guys. These desert bases were always a temporary solution and are destined for my ogre-shabti army. My brets (and lots of the empire models too) are going to look like they're running across rocky outcroppings in an ocean/stream/body of water. Here are the first couple (rock-greyification is still tbd)

Very nice work!

The waves on that new base look fantastic, that's a great blue you painted. The army as a whole looks solid. I love seeing a bright army.

The gryphon model looks like a purdue chicken that was enhanced for extra boob action.
Fast, like kittens with jetpacks.

Thanks -- I have a bunch of gor hooves that I'm going to try to use on the demi-gryph knights, but I'm not as sure that they'll work. It might be hard to get them lined up correctly.
