About the Project

Over the year I’ve been dabbling with my City States army but now its time to pull it all together. When I painted my Hundred Kingdoms army I kept them quite gritty but I want these to look like the shiny new kids on the block so I’m going to attempt to use the more poppy speed paints to really set them apart. It does mean I have to be more careful as I can’t really on drybrushes and washes to bale me out!

Unfortunately the beers flowed too quickly for me to keep a detailed report but her are some images from the battle. Mission was to destroy 4 objectives and the City States came out on top in the end!

Mighty Minotaurs!

Now for another unit where I didn’t take pictures of all the steps as I rushed them to get ready for a First Blood game.

I need another unit so I’ll add in the other steps when I get them done.

Time for the BIG GUN! The Promethean Giant!

Now this chap was painted last year as soon as he came out. I got too excited to wait and as such forgot to record the painting steps.
To be honest he’s not that different than the speed paints I’ve used for the standard guys in the army.

Full disclosure this guy was painted when he came out last year as I was to excited to wait. Because of that I did forget to do the paint pictures so it’s just the finished images. You can pretty much work out the speed paints used as it’s in line with the basic guys!

Bases painted up with some Zandri Dust, now it’s just a case of touching up any missed areas. Also I think the skin may need a little bit of highlighting, beige anyone?Bases painted up with some Zandri Dust, now it’s just a case of touching up any missed areas.

Next up it’s time for some Elite troops and it’s the sword and board wielding Agema. I want these to look more menacing so I think I’m going to go with black cloaks.Next up it’s time for some Elite troops and it’s the sword and board wielding Agema.

Done in the same way as the Hoplites so I won’t repeat the paints. So here they are!

Quick note metallic speed paints weren’t a thing when I starter these so as I’ll be washing the metals and old friend came for a drybrush.Quick note metallic speed paints weren’t a thing when I starter these so as I’ll be washing the metals and old friend came for a drybrush.

Now I did get a bit forgetful with the photos whilst I was assembling. The skin tone is Speedpaint Crusader skin

Now the bases are down I think the skin is a bit too pink so I want to tone it down a bit with a drybrush.
