I decided my Amazon’s would be next
This was simply because there were less of them and also they were less detailed than the Mongols. I decided that I needed to ease myself into painting 10mm again as it has been about three years or so since I did.
These were base coated black…
Foundry Bay brown (b) was put on as a heavy dry brush. After that a lighter dry brush of Bay brown (c). The difference can be seen in the photo below.
I mixed up the lighter Bay brown with some GW Cadian flesh. I think I overdid the light drybrush as they came out a bit lighter than I wanted.
The two slaves carrying the queen are meant to be a lighter skin tone. My first set of these are Caucasian with blonde hair, I wanted this lot to be different. They have obviously captured some of the hated white hair tribe….
I finished tonight’s session by painting all the hair black. Tomorrow I will hopefully crack on with the weapons and camels.
Once the weapons are done I reckon they will look a lot better. That and getting something onto the bases to hide the black.
I am wanting these all finished before I fly down to Aberdeen on Tuesday morning.
