Kiki's Basileans

Hi everybody!
One year ago, a friend of mine told me “Hey, I began to paint miniatures and that’s great! Do you want to make an army too?”. I never painted in my life but I’ve seen some games and I thought it would be a great hobby. So I checked which factions were available, and I choosed Basileans: angels with fire swords and big guys in can box… What would be better?

So I bought a box of troopers and… I made some Playmobils ? :sweat_smile: Not great but I enjoyed it.

So I studied many tutorials on Youtube and it started to become addictive…

Ok, next step : some angels… I choosed Basileans for this reason!

And big guys in armor was the second reason…

Making fire swords was easier than I expected, thanks to Speedpaint. So I wanted to try Samacris, like @DreadNort 's one.

Flat shields are difficult to paint, but I tried…

Then I painted another batch of angels to apply some technics I’ve learned :

Those guys were harder to paint than I expected, but at least I’ll have some cavalry for my first battle.

And this angel… I used @Bandrol 's Julius because I still can’t imagine which ones will look good. Well, He reminds me some Saint Seiya hero :laughing:

My wife gave me the dragon for my birthday (best gift ever!), I waited 5 long months to paint it… I wanted to learn new techniques and buy more paints. I used Speedpaint to start but it was really ugly… So I stripped it off and started again. I’ve used a step by step tutorial on Doctor Faust’s Painting Clinic’s Youtube channel and I was satisfied for a first dragon.

I painted some other guys for a second battle :


[Off-basileans] I wanted to try something else than speedpaint and drybrush, so I tried to paint a barbarian from a boardgame

Back to guys in armor!

[Off-basileans] And to finish this first year of painting, I bought a 75mm. Once again I used a tutorial from Dr Faust.

Basileans are really great and I hope they’ll make other miniatures for this faction!

Welcome to the forum! Quite the achievement there, really impressive! It would be nice to see the whole army in all it’s glory in a group shot. Basilaens are pretty cool! How where your first games?
