So here they are:
|A little separation, but not too bad.|
When I did the other three I did 5ml Flow aid, 5ml Matte medium and 15 drops Ink. I'll show how they work out in an upcoming post and compare them with my GW Brown Wash.
I also did a little painting, mostly base coats.
Strelets Medieval Crossbow on the left plus some Zvezda peasants in the back got some shiny bits. As did the Caesar Adventurers. With them you can see I'm trying a darker undercoat, instead of the yellow ochre for the flesh. The Barbarian brothers can be seen on the right, Nanoc and Canoc. Nanoc is the one on the bottle cap with the sword. I'm still trying to decide what color his fur loin cloth should be.
And you can see the Klingon (Hishen) ships in the background. I just had an epiphany that I would leave them gray and give them a black and then green wash followed by perhaps a dry brush and picking out a few details. This post has been more productive than I thought.
I also went to a local hobby shop (actually both bracnches) called the Hobby Bench and picked up these:
I have now set myself the goal of fighting out the rematch between Stygustan and Tropilium with figures. I ordeed the rest online. The local stores are good for WWII and ACW as well as some Napoleonics but the variety is just not there. So I'll stick to the internet for most of my needs as I really didn't have the time for all the driving and such.
Welcome to Justin Penwith of The Royalist Roundhead just another guy trying to get back into the hobby on a budget. He's got some really good insights and ideas. The post on blogs that inspire him inspired me, frankly. So look out for a post on the blogs that get me going.
