Gotta love the sunlight in the background - gives him an epic feel - All will bow to Zur!
Kapitän Anselmus von Drachenheim mounted on his pegasus - the model is a basic plastic Bretonnian Pegasus Knight although I swapped in an old 5th edition KoR dragon helmet (dont really like the new one that came with the model so much) and I added the dragon shield from the Bretonnian special character. The base includes an Orc casualty from the bits section and I just cut a gobbo shield in half to make it look like von Drachenheim had just speared him through it.
Notice the scenic base :)
Closer view - another greenskin felled by Drachenheim
Side view displaying the dragon shield
Side view displaying the livery. Note the checker pattern and my poor attempt at freehanding a dragon rampant. Note some of the detail on the dead orc too such as the checker pattern on his choppa and the splintered shield lying on the ground.
Closeup of the livery
Livery on the right side. A small checker pattern and my attempt to freehand a tower
Another view of the right side. Note the striping on his lance and the checker pattern as well
Front view - nothing much here, just some small patterns on the little shield on the pegasus
Another left side view - actually managed to get the eye on the pegasus looking semi-decent
This was the first unit I actually painted for my DOW. I always liked the look of these guys although they haven't always done so well in battle :)
Reinforcements arrive for the Venators in the form of some plastic empire knights with the Venator shields added. I put them on 40mm bases to make things a little easier for movement. These guys will be the first casualties in any case. Picture of the entire unit coming soon.
