These are the first 4 Fireforge Foot Sergeants I completed to test out the color scheme I had in mind for them. I deliberately chose muted colors to really differentiate them from the brightly colored elves. The skin color I tried is new to me and I really liked the results. I used cork brown, washed with brown ink, when back over them with cork brown, washed with tanned flesh, and finally added more highlights of just cork brown. I am pleased with the results. My plan is to add Templars eventually, and they will have a variety of shield designs.
These are 1/72 Late Romans from Tumbling Dice Miniatures that I painted as Ioviani seniores for a commission. I have 12 other miniatures I am working on as Herculiani seniores. I think the bearer carrying the Eagle is my favorite out of this unit of figures.
I just received a box Foot Sergeants from Fireforge Games in the post today. I put together 24 of them to represent the household guard of a rich family. They're armed with spears, swords, and crossbows. The other half will represent a less wealthy family and will be armed with spears, axes and maces, and bows or I will use them all in zombie conversions....I haven't decided yet. I have previously assembled a box of Fireforge Templars on foot and these Foot Sergeants are a much better kit. The weapons are better size and the arms do not go out at crazy angles.
I completed these 10 French paratroopers from Redstar Miniatures for a commission. The picture is extremely washed out, I think the dark uniforms against the fair skin did it in. I painted the uniforms with Reaper Miniatures Military Green and Vallejo Beige Brown and then washed the uniform with Army Painters' Dark wash.
