Back to the Brushes 50

A slight change of plan in that the WIP pictures are being shown before the base is fully completed.  This is the second unit of Mycenaean spearmen for the planned Impetus army.

A very regular approach to basing this unit was used, most  likely due to the time of night that the basing was started.

A slightly different approach to the shields this time and on reflection the original method used previously is preferred and will be used for any other shields throughout the remainder of the this army.

The last picture shows the basing starting to take place. Hopefully this will be completed over the new few days.

Cheers for now

Those are splendid! How do you do the narrow white lines on the shields, please?

Phil Broeders said...

Brilliant job. I love them!

Nice painting on some very nice sculpts. Trojan/Mycenaeans are close to my heart. Best, Dean

Beautiful work, with the shielding being especially wonderful. And I'm guessing, quite tedious! The results are excellent!

Hi Simon,

The narrow white lines are all cross hatched by brush. I use a slightly longer brush than normal to give a finer point. Its slow work but gives a good effect.

Thanks to all for the compliments, greatly appreciated.
