May 2023 Update:
Not many additions this time around, but big ones! As I really do paint very slowly, I was originally quite daunted by really huge models like , for example, the Mantic Tree Herder and opted for Otherworld and Reaper minis for my Monsters and Titans instead.
But after 2300 points were finally reached I went back and took another look at those “huge” models and did get started on a new Tree Herder and Dragon after all and am very happy that I did! While it did take ages to get them both done, i feel it really changes the overall look of the whole army, having these gigantic minis as new centerpieces. Anyways, you can compare yourself:
July 2022 Update:
Army is shaping up to what I originally envisioned , when I started long ago (see below), except now I want a bigger Tree Herder and Dragon to replace the current ones …
Still, having painted all the models I had originally lined up feels great and this is what the army looks like right now:
If anyone remembers, there was a “Humble Beginnings” post on the old Mantic forum back in the day, which I made to showcase my just then finished Palace Guard unit, the very first full Kings of War unit I painted.
Now … about 2-3 years later I finally got to the 1000 point mark … yup I am a very very slow painter
But slow or not, I got the first 1000 points finished after all … soooo pictures
P.S.: I’ll do some close up pictures of the different units next …
Playable Army Update:
Well it’s been quite a bit longer than the 2-3 years mentioned above, since I started this project, more like 4 years now and the army has come a long way. So I figured it was time to update this post as well with am up to date picture of the full army:
And yup, I’m a very slow painter! But I’m more than happy with how that army is turning out, especially seeing the progress over the years on those pictures side by side now.
It’s getting pretty close to what I originally planned it to be as I started over 4 years ago and I’m still quite amazed by that.
