I was back home in turin this weekend and had some time to take some pictures of my old bretonnians, the last army I completed for WH. These were done in 2013 while living in South America and were my proud and joy for many years afterward until the days of AoS... they never saw the battlefield though, something I am quite sad about.
These are just some of them and although I never got to complete a playable army for 8 ed, they were the closest thing to an army I completed since my teenage days.
To overcome the boredom of painting so many models I came up with an idea that I have to say was quite successful: I divided my army into what I called “Ordonnances” , inspired by medieval military history. Each knight is accompanied by 2 men at arms, 2 archers and a mounted squire, which were all painted together... so instead of having to work my way through 20 men at arms in one go my army greaw esponentialky while allowing me to paint at a more enjoyable pace.
This is an example of two ordonnances:
