High Exemplar Gravus

High Exmplar Gravus has some pretty nice concept art but I always felt the mounted sculpt was a little... stumbly?  Despite that I do like the sculpts.  There's a good amount of detail on the armor - slightly more than the standard exemplar model - but not too much so.

Vassal of Menoth

The Vassal of Menoth isn't one of the more exciting sculpts Privateer Press has released.  Then again, they're infinitely useful on the tabletop so maybe there's some sort of inverse correlation there.

Exemplar Errant

As much as painting ceremonial Exemplar armor can be tedious at times I really like way Exemplar look on the tabletop.

Hierophant

I painted the Hierophant in time for DieCon X back in 2010.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Visgoth Rhoven & Honor Guard

I painted Rhoven and his Exemplar honor guard up at the tail end of my Protectorate collection. I've only fielded them once or twice since they were first released, and as such they kept getting pushed back to the end of my painting queue. But as PP's release schedule slowed the past couple years I was finally able to get to them.

Reclaimer

The Reclaimer was actually a pretty quick figure to paint considering a vast majority of it was either black or metallic and there was very little exposed flesh. Still black can be a tricky color to paint. I went ahead and went the wet blending route since every time I try to layer black it seems to turn out poorly. The result is subtle but present, which was what I was going for so I'm happy with it. On the down side the highlighting on the teal trim of the stole doesn't show up well, which is dissapointing.

Temple Flameguard

I painted the Temple Flameguard up during a business trip in 2006, back when taking fluids on an airplane wasn't restricted.  They were done with what is at this point my standard Menite process. They flew home with me just a little short of complete but I finished the shields and spears and attached them all soon afterwards.

Daughters of the Flame

The Daughters of the Flame, aka Menoth's Angels, were a relatively dainty unit to paint compared to the bulky knights and spearmen that are more common in the Protectorate army. But they fit together well and once I got them on my painting desk it I was able to work through them relatively easily.

Wracks

Despite the amount of skin that I had to paint I was able to work through these guys pretty quickly. They also gave me a good opportunity to work on using the P3 flesh line (Idrian, Khador, Midland, Rin).

Choir of Menoth

With the exception of the Mangled Metal format (which doesn't allow infantry, just jacks), I don't think I've ever fielded an army without the choir. They're just too good and too utilitarian for their points not to. So since they hit the table so often, they definitely needed to get painted. I started of with what has become my standard paint scheme for the Protectorate, throwing in the accent color on their sashes since according to their fluff they're warcasters in training.
