The Sword Knights are old fashion knight infantry. In a world of magic and warjacks these only survive with strict training, which help them holding a defensive line or exploiting enemies unawareness when they are busy fighting the Cygnar warjacks. Mostly they are cheap resilient cannon fodder.

The Seneshal is painted like the Knights Exemplar because he is one of them. His swords are not painted white as the Knights leader simply because I don’t think a knight has to be a Knights Leader to become a Seneshal and besides the second sword is from a fallen battle brother who might not have been a leader either. I did spend some time to figure out what to paint on the little flags but in the end I decided to keep the clean white as his armour. I also bend the flags in the opposite direction of the way his…

  Kreoss is painted like the Knights Exemplar because he is one of them. I was considering painting elaborate patterns on his cloak and maybe add some colour, but then I thought “No, he is a knight”, and I think he would dress as humbly as posible to honor his battle brothers.

Only the priest is painted all white because he is the “purest”. The acolytes only have a white cloth over their dark robes because the most important thing about them is the scrolls they bring to the battle field. They are not yet worthy of the full on white suit. It is a bit funny that the priest is the most important figure of the unit since I think the acolyte minis are far better sculpted.

I painted the Revengers as I have painted my Menoth troops: Primed black and painted white. However this really didn’t work out as I planned on the first one (the right one) because painteing larger areas of black white requires many layers of white… too many. So the result looks crap! The second one I primed white and although it doesn’t show on the photo it has a cleaner finish because it doesn’t have layer upon layer of white covering black.

This is the first test of the all white and metal colourscheme I have planned for my Menoth and I am very happy with these guys. And i am glad I decided to do a Knights themed army since I was hoping several of these white cladded holy warriors would look better together and I think they do.

  At the time writting this I am actually a Cryx player, but I had this idea that a mideval painting on the big plates of a Menoth jack could look cool so I decided to buy a Menoth jack to try it out. This is the first time in years I am painting a miniature I don’t need for an army. I think last time I did something like that was in 1997, that’s six years ago. I painted the gold as non-metalic-metal which isn’t really the best technique to do battle-worn warjacks but I didn’t want too many…
