Back to the brushes 4

Here are a few work in progress pictures of the first Trojan Chariot unit. This will be Hector's chariot and at present there is doubt on the colour of the tunics; the white is just not sitting right just now. Maybe in the cold light of day it will be okay but at just now it is heading for a new coat of black in the morning.

The white of tunics is too cold for the desired feel of the army and it may be better to start with a light buff base coat rather than a light grey. This will provide a warmer base without having to resort to yellows, ochres and god forbid reds.

The horse hair plume from Hector's helm will definitely be changing colour as it is too stark in white. May opt for a light green here to tie in with the planned colour for the edging of the tunic.

That is all at present but hopefully there will be some more on the same unit throughout this week.

Cheers for now

Nice work! The color of the boars tusks helmets looks very authentic. Best, Dean

I think the white looks rather nice, also the bone helmets look very cool!!

It's coming together very nicely I'd say.

Really like those figures, looking forward to seeing this progress also like the idea of foot and chariot bases for the heros!
