I've been chipping away at some of the 6mm Romans for Phil and hoping to make a major push on them over Easter. Here's the WIP on the triarii.
After washing with raw umber of over a white undercoat I painted them in the order of mail shirts - back of shields - spears - front of shields - flesh - helmets - plumes. With the camera zoom I can see dodgy paintwork I honestly can't detect asily while looking at the actual figures. All the colours are quite pale, and I'm thinking of giving them a wash with some diluted stain varnish to define some of the detail a little more.
I must say that I'm impressed by the detail, and by how easy it is really to whack some paint on them. I think they'll look ok. I don't want to be the subject of one of Phil's epic rants!
In other news, the figure I was kindly awarded by the Mad Padre, Mrs Padre and Stanley the Cat arrived safely, and it is a cracker. Thanks Rev!
