Hi all,

Seeing that post about the resurrection of Warzone has got me looking in the cupboards at the lead pile and I need to give myself a quick size 12 up the butt to get some more painted as I have the bug again because out the announcement.

Now which of the Dark Eden armies I possess should I paint first? I've always liked the figures just never got a around to getting them painted. I shall challenge myself to get them painted within a month (or at least 1/2 painted)

Figure count for each army as it stands:
Armies of the Tzar - Sons Of Rasputin (95)
Crescentia War Parties (132)
The Templars (77)

Obviously no mounts were made.

So enter your choice in the poll above. Don't forget to vote           SOME WIP SOR PHOTOS ADDED ON PAGE 3 UPDATED 18th MARCH
Also any painted ideas will be welcomed

Let the fun begin...

regards

Pablo '99'

Another vote for SoR.   They are a viable army in UWZ, and have some neat troop choices.   Plus, I need ideas for my own SoR army...

Those illo's are fantastic. I've never seen them before.

Incidentally I vote for the Sons as well.

Nice artwork "Frazetta" not seen some of these before, lets hope he does more...

On the topic of this painting challenge I've just undercoated a few of each fraction to do a trial paint job for each race (Horde troopers, Jihad infantry, Soldat troopers) to get a feel of how I want to paint the whole lot up I'll post pictures once I've got some base colours on them.

I'd forgotten how heavy the SOR miniatures were  :o

Need a like button. Curious to see what you come up with paintwise. I've been struggling on a colour scheme for my Soldats for over six months.

Okay a quick update I  just put some base colours on the minis with no shading or highlighting but you can get the general feel of the colour schemes the camera has bleached out the colours a little will do better lighting on the finished ones.

1st up Sons of Rasputin

SOR Soldats



Soldat Sgt + Soldat

Soldat Banner Bearer & LMG


I know they don't look great but they will get better  ::)  I hope  ;D

2nd up The Templars

Some horde troopers (not all the base colours have been added yet)
