I am one of those players that never get anything done. I own 5-6 armies of 1500+ points but none of them have been more than half painted (most have never seen the battlefield at all).

When the current line of bretonninans were released I once again bought a ton o f models I never got around to paint. As my exams finish early this year, I have decieded to finally do something about this.

Before I put them on the shelves I managed to finish a box of Men at Arms:

I plan to touch theese up a bit and add some highligthing.

I also "finished" 2 knigths. And yes, I know that the cloth surfaces are screaming "highligth me!".

I'm planning to finish these two and the rest of their unit to start with.

Those are looking quite nice. And, whilst the Bretonnian Knights could do with a highlight, personally I think they look quite smashing simply block painted. That that much variety and bold colors, I think it helps them stand out a bit. but that Might just be me.

Buzy reading for my exams at the moment, but here is a picture of what will be my generals Royal Pegasus.

Nothing fancy, just a repositioning of a wing and the rear hooves to make it able to stand on its hind legs. Looking forward to paint it.

Royal Pegasus looks good in that pose! Your painting is very neat, and that's what's most important for a full sized army, the overall effect is crucial and your basing is a good start for that.

As you say though, going that little bit further and giving those knights a highlight (and shade) would make them a lot better. Bretonnia is a tough army to paint en mass though since you can't production line paint - good luck finishing it, and have plenty of fun doing it.

Have you set yourself a time limit or particular goals? I find I get distracted easily by character models and never quite finish my regiments, a poor state of affairs for any army so I have to be very disciplined and set myself targets.

I gave up setting time limits or promising myself not to buy more before I painted what I already have about 8 years ago. I'm using this log to force myself to get something done.

I like the men at arms, They really look like idiots, while still being in uniform. There are not many regiments that possess both qualities :D..
The champion is a perfect example of this :)
The knights look good too!
