A Song of Blades and Bronze... Some Slingers

 Greetings...

Yet another small addition to this project...

This time it is some Northern European Slingers.

This group is made up from the youths of the village so they have less tattoos... I intended to do very simple plaids on these... but as always I let things go...

I am very pleased with them... I may have to get a few more.



The tunics started of with a Citadel Loren Forest base coat and then the different plaids were added with a mixture of muted colours.


The miniatures are...

The bases are...

The paints are Wargames Foundry and Citadel...

As always these were a lot of fun to paint... maybe I shall add some Sea Peoples next...


All the best    Aly
