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 a more uniform force so planning ahead and quickly writing down what you want in your force helps provide guidance and direction for the force. The way I see it there are three things to consider when approaching the build of a No Quarter/ No…

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 she wasn’t needed anymore.

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.

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 half part talent, the other half is hard training and where my Banger doesn’t care about most things he does care about his shooting skills, in fact he hates it if somebody is a better shot than him. So I recon he would be praticing…

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 Bane Leader. I am going to need at least one more Bane Leader anyway which I can keep as is. The head fitted nicely and he still comes through as a Bane Leader but looks more induvidual. The miniature was originally standing with his right…

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 mechanic (ignore the gun) he still felt a bit scifi/fantasy.

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 means she is going to stand out in her actions as well.

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 just think Saint Mark is too cool to have laying around so I started my Forsaken force and my NMM technique with him.

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 the light cape is to give a feel of some technology (yes we CAN wash our clothes properly).

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 to re-paint the ones I had painted and which I were quite proud of so what to do? In the end the solution was very obvious: The current Forsaken was led by Saint Mark so paint the rest of the Forsaken as if they belong…
