Well, new forum, best repost so that I have something to update as I add to it...
So, having been very undecided when I started painting my Khador whether I wanted to paint them white or olive green I opted for white.
Having painted a decent sized force in white I still kept thinking maybe green would've been better, certainly as I use Butcher the most, and so like the idea of a 5th Border Legion force.
With the announcement MKII was to be released in January, and seeing it as an excuse to start afresh, I'm now doing just that, painting lots of new stuff in the colours of the 5th Border Legion.
So far I haven't gotten very far, but what I have got was enough to win me the best painted *****machine army at TS, and then the best painted overall award.
Not a bad effort considering the army on show was clearly wearing two very different colour schemes.
These models continue the melted snow theme on the bases, but slightly less snow and more greenery, and perhaps a bit more effort on the bases too, but they sit nicely alongside the white army as a result, and the snow helps the dark models pop out from the table.
These are painted, erm, properly, insofar as I didn't use any washes to speed me along; it's all blended shading and hilighting, but it's all done relativly quickly, afterall this is a gaming army first and foremost.
Enough chitter-chatter, on with the models...
First up, the Butcher:
