|The various styles of weapon|
Paintwise I kept to a limited palette of mainly browns, as fit my ideas of medieval kit, but the lord had splashed out on tunics in his heraldic colours to help identify his men in the field. To support that he's even let them have a natty banner with a field sign on it:
|Extended spear and sword added to left hand|
I'm still working on getting the bases right. I've gone with a much darker brown for these, and it's much closer to the peaty look I wanted. the water effects are still a learning process, but one thing apparent from these is that you are better off applying thin layers with greater regularity than thick layers with longer drying times. In fact there may be an optimal time to permit the layers to bond seamlessly...
|Water has taken on an odd blobbish quality at times|
|Must remember - mould-lines!|
Well, I shan't be dishonoured in my next battle by a lack of fresh troops at least.
