Swords 'n' Steam: Protectorate of Menoth commission
A continuing expansion of an army I've been working on, off and on, for years.
I've always liked how the Exemplar line looks. Though I wish the Protectorate had had a little more industrial/early modern stuff like their first couple books did, if they're going to have a bunch of knights, I'm glad it's the Knights Exemplar. The Errant Officer is a great model, just very well sculpted and with a bit more nuance of pose than I expect from PP.
In the theoretical universe where I had any say in the aesthetic development of the Protectorate, I'd have pushed the infantry in the industrial/irregular/steampunk direction, while keeping the warcasters/priests/warjacks as the elite and formal look.
Instead, I'll keep myself satisfied by painting more pretty gold warjacks :P
