Paint Table Saturday 218 - Chevaliers D' Honneur

Hi All,

On the table today we have one of the next units of my Bretonnian Army for the Old World Army Challenge. 4 Chevalier D'Honneur and a 15th level Hero (Viscomte) to lead them.


Just cutting things off the sprue and cleaning up mold lines right now. I also have some retainers with spears, and some with crossbows for another 20 figures I could do, but they also need a little more prep so I'm thinking the five for this month. It would have been nice to have these guys all ready to go before the challenge kicked off, but I'm never totally ready for these things.

Here are the pics of those figures I finished on December 30th.



Two views of the foot knights lead by a baron (Level 5 hero) to show the banner and figures.


15 Peasants with bows. The front rank are my original ones bought back around 1990, then most of the rest are Wargames Foundry with two Plastic Archers that my brother gave me. I believe he said they came with the video game Shadow of the Horned Rat.


One Chevalier D'Epee to round out the points. I was mostly successful at getting rid of the join seams. I still have to figure out how to fix the one miscast horse I have.


Group shot that gives away my impromptu studio a little.

Anyway thanks for looking.

    1. Thanks Mario, best wishes for 2018 to you as well. Those are the old Knights of the Realm, so 5th edition (?) WFB. But yes, GW Bretonnians.

  3. Awesome job it looks ace all ranked up. I remember those plastic Bretonnian archers well. They gave some away with White Dwarf and everyone was giving them away at school.

    1. Thank you Simon, yes putting them all together looks more impressive. I'm not the biggest fan of those plastic Bretonnian Archers but they're ok. I'd either want them all to be those or just a couple mixed in like I have.

  4. This is a very exciting project, Sean. I love the bright colours and the expressive faces in the miniatures you've already painted. Good luck with these knights - their panoplies will give your talents lots of scope.

    1. Thank you Matthew. I'm still putting these buggers together and trying out a new putty for hiding the seams. There's also the question of how I want to do the heraldry, I feel it should be a tad more complex.
