Challenge Day 34 - Friday Night Reds

I've been taking it fairly easy this evening - I needed an easy painting night after doing all that work on the 96 Righteous Army figures. They have had a coat of Klear/ink mix, the bases have had an ink wash and been dry-brushed. All that remains to do is spray them with matt varnish, flock the bases and add some flags - those are jobs for tomorrow.

I've also done a little more work on the Aztecs. The reds of the suit, hat and shield have been highlighted, then the "feather" texture given a final wash of Black Red to darken the recesses a bit. I've also painted the basecoats for the wooden part and the earth colour on the base.

If all goes to plan, I should be able to finish them tomorrow as well and get two submissions in for this weekend.

I'm not sure what will be up next. I do have an inkling of an idea for the "Defensive Terrain" bonus theme round, but I still need to work out some details to see if it's something I can do without too much trouble.

I'll probably return to the 6mm Rebs next week, maybe the artillery and either the mounted or dismounted cavalry.


  1. Aztecs I Ones-eys! Just shows you in fashion nothing is new.

    I am following this Frostgrave setting avidly!

  2. Liking the red Aztecs, takes me back......

  3. @ Clint - I bet you wouldn't say to an Aztec that he was wearing a onesie! ;)

    @ Fran - thanks! I didn't think you were old enough to have been with Cortes though? :p
