Don't forget my Prize Draw!
I managed to get quite a bit of work done today. The Sarmatian lancers should be finished tomorrow (apart from basing), the Alans probably won't be finished tomorrow, but should be finished (apart from basing) on Tuesday. I'm putting the Scythians on hold for now - once I've got the Sarmatian lancers and the Alans based, I need to finish the basing on all of the Sarmatian force I've done so far (dark washing and dry-brushing the basing texture, adding flock, clump foliage, tufts etc) so that they are looking good in time for Campaign.
Done today: flesh touched up; bows painted on the ones where they show; equipment (scabbards, sword belts, bowcases and quivers)
Still to do: fletching on arrows in quivers; sword hilts and lance tips; touch-ups; Klear/Ink coat
Alan Light Horse
Done today: horse tack; horse eyes; flesh; boots
Still to do: trousers; tunics; hair; belts; bows; equipment; fletching; metalwork (bits; tack decorations, sword hilts); plumes and tassels; ground colour on bases; Klear/ink
"You what? Where on Earth did these come from?"
I decided that I needed to get something else prepped and ready to go if I need a break from painting Sarmatians/Alans/Scythians and spotted these hiding away in my "prepped" drawer so cracked on with priming them.
They're from The Scene
Done today: primed with Vallejo acrylic polyurethane black primer
Still to do: everything!
I'm still trying to decide what colour to do for the armour/exoskeleton and weapons on these. I'm leaning toward a red/orange/brown metallic look for the body - I can probably achieve that using a mix of Red Leather 818 and Vallejo metallic medium. That colouring will be applied by dry-brushing.
