I started this project right after the first pictures and information about the last GD Germany came in. The increase of quality in that competition has really motivated me and I am eager to enter as many miniatures as possible next year. I have already finished one entry and I aim to go there with at least six or seven entries. As I do not only want to enter in Single Miniature (40k, Fantasy, LotR), I felt it is time to go for another regiment of Warhammer Fantasy. I have always been a great fan of Bretonnia, The Empire, Wood Elves and High Elves. With the Island of Blood box, GW released tons of great figures at a really fair price. After my Bonecrusher from this box, I will now paint a unit of 5 Lothern Sea Guards. I struggled finding a good colour concept because in my opinion, these minis have been painted perfectly by Volomir. The only thing I knew was the fact that my version should show no similarities with his regiment. As he used mostly cold colours, I decided to go for the opposite. I also did not convert the minis, I will paint them right out of the box.
The current state shows the musician after maybe 5 hours of painting. I will try to finish each miniature in about 15 hours, maybe 20 for the Champion and the banner bearer. Including the bases, this project should be finished in about 100 hours of painting, what is quite effective in my oppinion.
I hope you like the mini so far, let me know what you think.
