I liked the idea of the In Her Majesties Name rules when I first heard of them and really liked them when I read them. So for this rules set I have painted up a force of guys in robes and other models. These are all going to be part of own own force, of which I’m still working on the details of the background and stats. One of the nice things of the IHMN rules is this flexibility. The force will take the next couple of blog posts to complete. I will include a full write up of them at the end of the painting. I may use them for West Winds Empire of the Dead as well (as that’s the source of most of the figures), but the simple and flexible rules for IHMN appeal for me.
None of the exiting factions for IHMN have angels for support, I guess for political and back ground reasons but this seemed too much fun not to do. It also allows me to create my own faction – which you’ll see the write up for in a later post.
They also have no iris in their eye’s – just white which I hope gives the faces a bit more bling, as if the wings do not differentiate them enough already. The colours are purposeful as well, with small amounts of red and other colours but on a mainly white and grey scheme. After all angels are normally white aren’t they.
The second angel is again done with whites and grey’s does have a little more colour – the flaming red hair vs. the blonde of the first one. I had originally had the idea to do the hair like fire, but in the end did something slightly less extreme in effect, which I think is still striking on the mini.Both these models are from one of the other ranges of Old Glory – I forget which, but they will work well to add some mystical backing for my faction Victorian religious faction.
Of course, any religious group need leaders and with Angels in the faction I’ll need some figs with a bit of influence. The West Wind figures from Old Glory work perfect for these and provide some interesting characters. So from that range, below you can see the two figures painted up as inquisitors for the faction.
