WIP: 2nd Batch Sarmatian Armoured Lancers #4; WIP: Alans #4; WIP: Battlebots #2

Don't forget my Prize Draw!

I had another good day today and got plenty of painting done. The Sarmatians are just about finished now - only the basing gunk needs to be added. The Alans are coming along nicely and if I'm lucky will be finished apart from basing gunk on Tuesday or Wednesday.

I also did a test of the paint/metallic medium mix and dry-brushed a couple of the Battlebots. I quite like the colour, but do let me know what you think.

Does this colour work?


  1. Very nice!! Keep 'em coming!!!

  2. You must be pretty pleased with the way the Sarmatians have turned out. I know I would!

    The colour on the battlebots looks fine.

  3. I like the Battlebots colour and models, where did these come from again?

  4. I like the battlebots' colour, though they look a bit dark

  5. @Kingsleypark - yup, very pleased although when I looked at them this morning I spotted that I'd forgotten to paint the beards on 20 of them. Luckily they were grey-primed, so it just makes them look like somewhat grizzled veterans!

    @Fran - they're from The Scene - link in previous post

    @Seb - I think that's just the pic - they don't look as dark in real life

  6. Very beautiful work! I like your style.

  7. Nice battle bots, colour looks good.
