Here are some pictures I saved for inspiration while researching paint schemes for the Raumsknechts. I painted one in the particolour style of the fifth picture as a test, but it didn’t look good and was too time consuming, so I settled on an empire style red and yellow scheme for the squad. Later I want to paint each of their armour with a unique heraldic scheme representing their noble family, to reintroduce some variety into the painting, as well as adding chipped paint effects to their brightly painted armour.
WIP for Emmerich’s Guard, a Planetary Defense Force unit, dubbed Raumscknechts by Facebook. They’re the elite bodyguard of the Planetary Governor, mostly the second sons of highly respected noble families.
Looking at the 3×3 photos here, top to bottom, left to right the characters are: Wolfgang Grunberg, Comms; Henry LaFrenz, Leader; Sebastian Werdin, Medic; Niko Beckermann; Leo Hildebrand; Hugo Kepler; Adelhelm Latzke; Johann Wentzel; Bernger Grasshoff, Heavy.
Governor Emmerich is not really meant to be a combatant, he’s statted as just a special weapon guardsman. He likes to hunt and has a very fancy rifle, but otherwise is out of his depth in any sort of combat situation.
Ran an introduction to Blades & Heroes at the local club using my Amazons and Dark Elves.
