WIP: Sarmatian Light Foot Javelins #3

OK, here they are, painted, varnished, Klear/inked and stuck on their bases. It was too late to faff around adding basing gunk tonight, so that will have to wait until Tuesday night as I have my final club tournament match tomorrow night against Tim the Madaxeman and his dastardly Western Han Chinese army. Hopefully my Sarmatians will do a little better this time, as some of their light foot have caught up with the cavalry contingent.

Anyway, some pics for your salivation.

I'd received a couple of comments that I could have gone darker on the inking, so I mixed up a stronger batch of Klear and Earth Brown (with a couple of drops of black). It seems to work much better (but I need to be more careful about pooling) for these figures, as they *should* look somewhat grungy, being "barbarians". I don't particularly like the parade ground look, but this mix is clearly too grungy for "civilised" troops. If I do decide to go for a "civilised" army, I'll need to experiment a bit to see what Klear/Ink mix works best.


  1. Tamsin, if I could paint as fast as you, I'd be making a lot more money than I do.

    1. But yours are much better painted than mine :)

  2. They look really good. I like the way the inking makes the shields look. Very realistic.

  3. Damned good work, they turned out well....

  4. Cheers guys!

    @Rodger - the inking looks a bit dark at the moment, but that could just be because they are gloss. They might look better when they finally get a matt spray (it's warming up, so shouldn't be long before I can spray without freezing my flat again)
