Back to the Brushes 132

Another stand of 15mm Arabs awaits basing, this time it is bow armed skirmishers from Essex miniatures. Finally found a painting style that suits this scale and period for me and it is very simple - block and wash.

Tried a few figures in same style that is used for 20mm figures, that is midtone and highlight however, felt that it was too much work for the figures, although have seen some stunning 15mm figures with two and possibly three layers applied.

A full stand of archers has been prepared for painting in the coming weeks.

Something retro and recently finished next

Cheers for now

Looking good.

Very nice work, Ross. I only painted 15mm for a DBA-sized army once, but recall using brighter than usual colors followed by washed and highlighting. Quite effective technique for the little guys! :)

Thanks for the tips Dean will bear this in mind for future stands.

Cheers, Ross
