I decided to paint one of my Greatswords up as a test model for my Empire army. I am hoping to get the army painted within a couple of months, so there are no four-step highlights or any of that. I wanted a relatively quick table-top quality job that I could easily replicate. I think it was a success. The reason I chose to paint the Greatswords first is that they feature the blue of my basic Halberdiers, the white of my elite units, and metal breastplates that I could practice painting for my Knights' armor. Looking at the pictures I can see a few things that I might touch up, but from arm's length he looks pretty much the way I wanted him to. Now I've just got to get through the other 73 models.
