Painted Fantasy Miniatures Information

The majority of Painted Fantasy Miniatures customers use their miniatures to play tabletop fantasy games such as Warhammer, Warhammer 40K, Lord of the Rings or Dungeons and Dragons. However, many people simply find the pages of Painted Fantasy Miniatures through the beautiful painted fantasy art. The artist even has collectors that do not use the miniatures for traditional gaming purposes; they are great display pieces and gifts for fantasy aficionados! However, we know that some of our guests are wondering; "What are these 'games' traditionally played with the miniatures on these pages?" Are you one of the people that would like to know what this is all about? Browse our following pages with information on the foremost tabletop fantasy, science fiction and RPGs (role playing games) played by our collectors; perhaps you will want to play too!

Historic Heraldry and Heraldic Devices for your Bretonnian Army

Would you like to know more about the history behind the fantasy? Although heraldry dates back to the ancient Egyptians and perhaps earlier, it is commonly thought of as a practice of the Medieval Knights of England and France as a way to tell friend from foe. Bretonnia and the Bretonnian knights have been based off of that history and culture, and the art of heraldry is a large part of creating any Bretonnian army. Here we will give you a brief overview of historic heraldry, but also tell you how you can integrate it easily into your fantasy Warhammer ® game with tips from the artist.

If you would like custom heraldic decal designs created, we recommend CitadelSix Custom Design.
