Here are the next units… yes…. Units…. For my De La Pole retinue.
Two units of Veteran Archers…
The first unit…
And unit number two…
I don’t normally like painting largish batches of figures at the same time… But this time I assembled most of the figures for the whole project in one go and also undercoated and blocked in the basic colours.
Using a fairly simple palette also helped a lot…
I only have my personality figure to finish and then they are done…
I am very pleased that they are finished…I have my first game on Saturday 😁… There is nothing like a deadline to put some wind in your sails.
My efforts pale into insignificance beside some of the youngsters… Who finished all their toys in two days.
I have to admit that I prefer my more relaxed and steady way of doing things.
The Armour is… AK Interactive… 11210 Natural Steel. With a diluted Contrast Black Templar wash.
The Hose and Tunics are a mix of difference browns and drabs.
The Shoes are… Citadel… Mournfang Brown.
The Scabbards are… Citadel… Doombull Brown.
The Belts are… Citadel… Deathclaw Brown.
The Blue bits are… Citadel… Teclis Blue.
The Yellow bits are… AK Interactive… 11118 Ochre.
The Weapon Shafts are… Foundry… Spearshaft Brown Light 29C.
As always everything was given a wash of Alys Brown Liquid and re-highlighted with the original colours.
Once the figures were matte varnished the Armour was given a coat of satin acrylic varnish to put a bit of a shine on it… The various leather goods were also gloss varnished.
