This pair are the Fennblade Officer and Drummer to accompany (surprisingly enough) the Trollkin Fennblades for my Hordes Trollbloods army. As with most Command Attachments, both models provide a benefit to the unit. The Officer, in addition to being a slightly more effective fighter, grants a conditional second attack action. The Drummer allows the unit to move again once they finish their activation; this is quite handy as it allows the Fennblades to charge in, hopefully kill a few things, then jam in even harder and generally get in the way until the main bulk of my army has a chance to catch-up.
I tried my best to keep the colour scheme for the Officer and Drummer as similar as possible to the Fennblades, which made a lot of the choices rather simple. Most notably I seem to have lost the red paint I was using at the time so the cloth is a little darker than the rest of the unit. My style has hopefully become a little cleaner and I’ve stopped painting eyes on small infantry so they’re not exactly the same as the rest of the unit anyway but I think that they’ll be OK at tabletop range.
I dedicate this post to Azazel’s Neglected Model September Challenge. The main Fennblade unit was painted back in 2013 and while I don’t think I purchased the Officer and Drummer at the same time they’ve certainly been waiting a while for their chance to make it onto the painting table.
Here is the full unit now; twelve Trollkin strong.
Next on the painting table: Bashi Bazouk.
