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. This and the Vengers‘ are Read more about High Exemplar Gravus[…]

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. There’s just enough detail on the Vassal to give a painter options to integrate it into their army’s color scheme.  I opted for a pretty Read more about Vassal of Menoth[…]

Exemplar Errant

As much as painting ceremonial Exemplar armor can be tedious at times I really like way Exemplar look on the tabletop. What stood out to me while I was photographing this models was how much better the officer and standard bearer’s gold trim looked than the rest of the unit.  In the couple years before Read more about Exemplar Errant[…]

Hierophant

I painted the Hierophant in time for DieCon X back in 2010.  I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I think I’ve already made my biggest critique of this figure in a previous WIP post about it. Working all the metallics reminded me how much I hate painting them.  I always look at each miniature Read more about Hierophant[…]

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 Read more about Visgoth Rhoven & Honor Guard[…]

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 Read more about Temple Flameguard[…]

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.      Read more about Daughters of the Flame[…]

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 Read more about Choir of Menoth[…]
