I think the purity seal thing would be better for Grail Knights, instead of Questing Knights.
Ack, I’m an idiot. And tired. That’s what I’m doing, the model shown next to the test guy is, indeed, a grail knight. I’ll go back and edit the original post.
I’ve asked a lot of people, and no one knows; the 40k purity seals that Space Marines use; what do they say?
Well, it differs between chapters, really. The Black Templars would say something like “Lead us from death to victory, from falsehood to truth. Lead us from despair to hope, from faith to slaughter, etc. etc.” or “Trust in the Emperor at the hour of battle. Trust him to intercede and protect His warriors…” You get the idea. a bunch of devotional pledges, prayers, that sort of thing.
Love the unified color pallet of those red/yellow knights! Besides myself, you are the only person I have seen do that. Is that typical where you are?
Hah, I honestly don’t have much of a clue about the styles in my region, seeing as there’s really no Warhammer being played where I live. But at any rate, I only chose that so they’d all still look individual while still belonging to a unit, under a lord who bears those colours himself. Entirely fluffy, of course.
I’m actually doing much the opposite with my Knights Errant, making them predominantly blue and white if it can be helped at all.
Oh, wow. That’s great work. I try not to use crosses in my Bretonnian army being as it’s a symbol not of their world, but I suppose the 40k Templars use it and it looks fantastic.
Yeah, the whole cross motif does seem a bit weird to use for Bretonnians, but I do like taking a break from endless parades of Fleur-de-Lis’. Besides, the Empire uses crosses… And the Maltese cross of the Black Templars looks distinctive enough to use just for kicks.
“bought some acrylic medium from a local painter’s store, and mix that with whatever color I’m using and an arseload of treated flow-release water to make my own glazes.” Again, in English? I’m always for a more simple way to “color” my Necrons (purp
The medium is basically what Games Workshop is selling now; you can see the description for it on their website. Basically, it makes semi-transparent paints, and you can thin those down to make washes and glazes.
The flow release is just a chemical that you mix in with water to make it more responsive to paint. I like my paints to be as smooth as possible, and while I’m not really sure exactly how much it helps, it does make me feel slightly better about putting water on my pallete.
And I think your line may have cut out a bit there.
Try out the new glazes if you get a chance, they’re very much like what the old inks were before they thinned them out and made washes. (Don’t get me wrong, I wash nearly everything I do =P )
Actually, I bought some acrylic medium from a local painter’s store, and mix that with whatever color I’m using and an arseload of treated flow-release water to make my own glazes. The effect can be hard to get right, but it can work wonders when it does. Actually, the open greenish-red wound on a hound’s leg was done by putting a green “glaze” over a red base. Didn’t work out too well, but I just put too much in the hole without thinning it properly.

Oh, sweet! I love to hear that people are using different paints; Citadel paints are dominant here and I really find them to be sort of… chunky (although the new line is really sweet) I’ll have to check out this stuff, do they have legitimate inks?
Well, I would use Citadel paints if I could get my hands on them. The dropper bottles Vallejo uses tend to clog up really easily, and they have no inks. Citadel washes are the best thing ever, in my opinion, and I got two base paints from the new line. Those things are damned amazing. I’ll agree on the older foundation paints being clumpy and kinda hard to work with, but they’re not that bad.
Unfortunately, I don’t really use Citadel paints very often. I either have to order them online or make a 5-hour trip to get them, so I use Vallejo paints I get locally.
Simple, but effective!
Interesting. I have a couple of old Bret pewters with banners like that, the green knight and the old lord on hippogriff. I hate them…
Wait, hold the phone… I’ve heard that the old Green Knight pewter is bad, and I KNOW the ancient, pre-6th edition hippogryph is bad… But a metal Louen Leoncouer? Fucking win. You aren’t allowed to not like that model.

Hmm… Those aren’t bad… Where are they from?
Oh, they just came with the castle boxed set. I’m gonna use it on an old standard bearer knight I have, though that means I’ll have three unique standard bearers… Whatever, I’ll probably just proxy them as Lords and Paladins.
I’ll post a pegasus I’ve done over on biggestlittleminiatures for you to see… Typically, we prime white and use flow improver. flow improver will even out your white a lot, make it less “gloppy.” It takes a moment longer to dry, but makes for smoother coats.
When I do white horses or fabric, I start with a coat of Bubonic brown and drybrush up the white.
True, lots of flow improver does help, but I honestly so like the idea of just endless drybrushing… Sounds like it’d work pretty damned well. The problem with actually painting the white on is just the endless layers you have to do… although priming white is, indeed, a huge help. Shame I usually only have black primer on hand… Oh well.
