Back to 28mm
These are cool to paint, great models, lots of detial. but glueing the metal heads on plastic bodies is a pain in the ass. The shields are simple, silver with armor ink wash. the armor is a mix of white and leather, and all got purple shoulders. som armor are just white linen with purple shoulders, others got some leather here and there.
I wanted alot of color, so the tunics are, either green, red, grey or tan/brown.
The spears are actualy "horse tone rohan" so really a horse color, but feel it looks great as light wood, I have had problems with wood color before, while i had great dark wood/musket brown that woks for muskets, it does not work for pikes and other wood stuff, it's to dark, and the pikes/spears are to thin to highlight properly. i did try a more orangy color that works for ak wood, but dosn't work on pikes. but this color looks like "pike color"
