Empire Demigryph Knights of the Emerald Order

Here is a unit of Demigryph Knights.
Demigryphs are Monstrous Cavalry and have the Armour Piercing special rule. The knights are armed with halberds - a free exchange for lances.
These Inner Circle Knights belong to the Emerald Order - fluff to follow.
The bases are quite large for the models - width-wise, so I plan to add some Orc bits underneath them as casualties.
I'm relieved to have finished these as I had barely averted a minor disaster when applying the Minwax stain. The stain started dissolving the Gold Leaf and I managed to minimize the spread of the gold. I should've known that would happen - especially when using thinner with the stain. I ended up going back over with Gold Leaf after the stain was dry. Note to self: only use acrylics with the stain. Next up is a Steam Tank which will be the last unit for 2,000 point army.

  1. Those look great Dean! Those look as if they could do some damage! Good to hear you didn't trip up too much on the gold leaf.

  4. Great work, Dean. You flipped what was almost a minor disaster into a major success. This Empire army looks unstoppable. Does it have any weak bits?

  5. Looks really good Dean. It really shows what you can do (fast & good) when you really want to. You are an inspiration to wargamers everywhere. Maybe we should do a video for the podcast where you walk people through some of your techniques for maximum effect.

  18. Thanks a lot for the great comments, everyone.

    Michael: May add another one or two for a larger pointed army - I still can't get my Imperial Griffon and War Altar on at the same time with a 2K point max.

    Best to all, Dean
