So I have been working slowly on a Bret army. After many weeks of working on a small unit of Knights of the Realm I really need a break from bright clean colors and heraldry, so naturally i'm ready to paint some peasants :).
The problem is I think the Bret peasant models, specifically the men at arms are pretty static. To make my units more interesting I would like to add some unit fillers, but I am having trouble thinking of some. Does anyone have some suggestions?
Now before throwing suggestions out there my bret army is going to have a very specific look and theme in mind. Normally brets focus completely on the heroism on their knights, making them champions of men ect. My knights will be painted in very bright clean colors emphasizing this view; however, I want many peasants which will be painted dirty (and hopefully have conversions) to emphasize their horrible poverty and grossness. I think this will have a really interesting effect in which my force contrasts really well with each other.
I want my unit fillers to help emphasize this idea of peasants being down trodden on, dirty, ect. My army is based in a rocky mountainous area if that helps for unit filler ideas. Also if anyone knows any good alternate models that could work for bret peasants please post links, because even different models could go a long way to show case the fact that bret peasants are conscript poor soldiers.
Looking forward to some ideas :).
