Back to the Brushes 227

Steady progress on the first batch of Caesarian Romans from Gripping Beast.

Pilums at the ready, the first troopers have only their shields to finish before varnishing. 

As previously mentioned these have been painted by blocking base colours and then washing with Army Painter Strong Tone wash. The bronze, flesh and tunic have then been highlighted with the base colour to lift key areas of the figures. 

Below, the first command figures prior to the final colours being blocked and the washed. 

The paints used for the are:

Flesh: Foundry Flesh B
Tunic: Foundry Scarlet A
Armour/metal: Citadel Chainmail
Bronze: Vallejo Old Gold
Leather: Foundry Dark Flesh A or Foundry Buff Leather A
Lion head dresses: Foundry Rawhide B
Weapon shafts: Foundry Spearshaft Brown B

Another eight are well on their way to being fully base coated in this style giving the project sone momentum. 

More work in progress to follow shortly. 

Cheers for now.
