Getting Started

When you first sit down to make a No Quarter/ No Limits force the options and posibilites seems, well, without limits. But while it is tempting to make a Space Marine/ Khador/ Grymm force, it is a good idea to keep it simple to start with. And working structured helps as well and gives you […]

Dedlock

The Dedlock is one special lady and to support this she is painted in a very unique way compare to the rest of the Saint John force because I wanted her to stand out as not being part of the army but rather an individual who had choosen to join the warband until she felt […]

Banes

First unit to follow the new paintscheme. They were a lot faster to paint than the previous Banes and to be honest I think they turned out better. In fact, my Saint John Banes won the Miscellaneous Class at Salute 2004. Check out Class 6 – 1st – Banes – Robert Framsgard. Yes they got my name wrong. […]

Banger

I painted the Banger like a bloke who doesn’t care about anything. The weird mixture of clothes (camouflage T-shirt and shiny leather pants, not the best combo). Finally I gave him a farmer’s tan (or Farmer Arms depending where in the world you are) because being as good as he is as shooting is only […]

Banes

The Banes are the very core of any Forsaken force so I want the Banes to have the base colours and nothing else. Bane Leader Yes, the Bane Leader miniature was fine as it came, but with two heads in the Saint Mark blister I couldn’t resist the temptation to replace the head of the […]

Weaponsmith

A really gritty mechanich look with blue overalls and a heavy leather apron and ofcourse the most have dirty white t-shirt. Finally I painted a small red tatoo on the back of his head and painted his ear ring in a bright jade colour so although he looks like he could be your friendly neighbourghood […]

Sister of Compassion

The sister’s colours are way off the Forsaken colourscheme and at first it did bug me a bit, but having played with her, it seems quite fitting A) because she is a super nurse so white nurse outfit makes sense and B) what she does is radically different from the rest of the force which […]

Saint Mark

I know you are suppose to paint a regular trooper as the first mini in any army (especially when it is for a new gaming system) in case you get the colourscheme wrong. I guess this is even more true when you have decided to learn a new techique as Non Metalic Metal. But I […]

Forsaken | Saint Mark

Saint Mark’s Forsaken Colourscheme The general colours for my Saint Mark troopers are brown and gold with a very light brown/ bone coloured cape (if applicable). The browns are to give the army a medieval feel, The gold is there to give them a feel of being a well off faction (posible the wealthiest faction of them all) and […]

Forsaken | Saint John

Saint John’s Forsaken Colourscheme I must admit that I ran sour in painting my Saint Mark force. Each mini simply took too long to paint (especially due to the NMM technique I used) and in the end I decided I needed to change my painting technique if I were to ever finished my Forsaken. However I didn’t want […]

Ratchets

The Ratchets are the core troops of the Brood and as such they are painted in the basis colourscheme with no frills. Orignally the whole idea of numbering the Brood troops came from the Ratchets since I needed a way to keep tracke of their wounds. However after demoing Dark Age with them at Salute […]
