Here's my first few SOK foot soldiers.  More are being assembled for processing.



How do they look?

They look great. Thanks for posting here.

The paint jobs look too good for the models to not be based ;) 

Excellent work as always Mr. Kufner.

Lol I think everyone loves boobies. 

Thanks for the kind words VK.  I am hoping to bring a fully painted SOK army to Talamania IV.

I didn't base the standard and spearman because I need to order a bunch of the 30mm lipped bases, the ones they are on are painting bases.

I hate how the camera flash washes the colors out but they would be grey shadows with out it.

I'm far from a picture-taking expert, but I've had good results turning off the flash, and pointing two desk lamps at the minis from two different directions.  All my pics of finished minis on this forum were taken this way.

That's a darn fine looking bunch!

That's some good painting there.  What made you decide to use green as your main clothing color?  I like it.  The figure to the right of the standard bearer looks like he needs a little touch up on his fingers on his right hand, but other than that ...two thumbs up.  Your painting reminds me of some type of "sketch type" art work that you would see in an artist's concept art for a figure line...and that my friend...makes me jealous. :)

Great work!

Thanks VK, the evil camera flash reveals all.  Since I paint away from the actual light source I may miss a few things like that.  I will touch that up and his vambraces as well.  Not sure why exactly I did it but My Hordes figures have the same color scheme so they work together well  ;D  I tend to like earthy tones and green cloth & brown fur are natural combos.  I do plan on purchasing some water slide decals of celtish tattoos and plan on adding them to the figures at a later date to give a more "wild" look to them.

Veez & Luckyone glad you like them.  More to come soon but I'm also getting ready for Dragon Con.

@ dave kufner:

I liked your SOK so much I had to get a few of mine primed and ready to paint.  The painting you did on them was great and I had to find a technique to come close to that "art work" or "comic" feel and after searching a while on the net I found that "Grey-scaling" is pretty darn close and after giving it a try it was an easy and fast job.  I highly recommend it and if nothing else...it's an interesting take on painting minis.

I'll post some pics when finished in my project log (then here when the army is complete).

By the way...Congrats!!! on the chariot building contest win. :)

VK,

it's good to know one can inspire others to paint.  After finishing the Banshees, which made me set aside some SOK wip figs, I also finished a hasslefree shaolin guy and just finished assembling & painting an adobe cantina for my wild west town.  I have three mostly done on the work bench and another four in the painting que.

Thanks about the win, I guess it helps when your the only entry :).  I wanna do a Capitol chariot for Talamania IV

Looking forward to seeing you stuff.
