Today has been quite productive. All the fur, hide, leather and cloth areas have been washed, hair has been painted (auburn for the female champion and 13 different shades for the remainder - it started off as 10, but a couple looked wrong so I darkened them and I added grey streaks into the brown on one of the chaps); wood has been basecoated and all the metal bits have been blacked.
First task tomorrow will be washes on the hair and wood, then it's onto the metal parts. I had thought about doing NMM, but with this many figures that would be too much like hard work. When the metals are done, I'll give the furs a light drybrush to highlight them then it's onto the detailing including painting symbols on the standards.
