|Citadel Chaos Warrior|
The painting technique used then is different from that used now; in that the base tone was painted over the entire area. Then the shading was painted into the recesses of the miniature and the highlights were added to the highest points of the miniature.
|Citadel Talisman Assassin|
The shading and highlighting can be clearly seen on these two figures, both of whom have seen many incarnations as miniatures in roleplaying games.
|Citadel Talisman Monk|
|Citadel D & D Barbarian|
When these figures were painted a very limited palette was available consisting of the following colours: black, white, flesh, red, dark blue, sky blue, leather, silver, dark green, slate grey, dark brown and khaki. Looking at the figures you can see that the colours were used as much as possible and often in places where they wouldn't be used now.
|Citadel Feudal Knight (Now Foundry)|
|Citadel D & D Magic User|
The robes of the magic user have been painted using a blending technique. From memory this was done whilst wet on the figure and worked up to the highlight and took forever. This was normally finished with a bit of dry brushing.
|Citadel D & D Thief|
Lastly, a warm welcome to:
- Sun of York
Hope that you find something of use in these ramblings.
Off now to put some colour on to a few Sassanid skirmishers which will probably need dusting before painting.
Cheers for now.
