Great! I hope you can take some nice pictures of them!

I've also been thinking to get some Pendraken minis for a Bret army, maybe yours will sway me!
I hope so! The only slight downer is the Knights look pretty much the same but I think there must be a couple of slightly different moulds as I can see some variations. If you mix the colouring up as I've done, it tends to hide/mask the "sameness" a little. I think the overall effect of the whole army together looks OK.

The other figures (Squires and various Infantry) are perfectly fine. On average I painted one unit per day, although at weekends I was doing a couple a day, less during the week.

Overall I'm happy with the army, a good reintroduction to 10mm painting. Wargaming standard painting, not Collection standard I guess. Good enough for me  :)

I'd recommend Pendraken, decent sculpts and not expensive. A few of the bases needed a minimum of filing down to make the figures stand level, nothing out of the ordinary and just a few seconds work for each one.

That looks great! My compliments. The colours really work to convey the image of a Brettonian army. Really nice.

I used to have an Empire army with Pendraken minis, I was quite happy with them as well.

Hopefully you can do battle with them soon!  :D

Really nice. Congratulations for finish a project. You have a great rate of painting. Warmaster is about battle with masses of minis and you did in a month!

Everything is nice but the bases... Green is too... Greeny :)

Add some mud, grass, rocks, etc. At least a quick drybrush !

Lovely- nice, bright colours. Well done.
 
I agree with Marell though, I'd break up the green on those bases with some tufts and some patches of dry brushing of another colour (bleached bone/Khaki?).

Basing, yes I've still got that to finish off. I've got a little flock left from years ago but need some PVA glue and the other stuff mentioned above. Something to tackle next week when I've been paid!
