OK folks, you are getting a bit of a preview here of a step by step series that will be coming to the blog next week. This is the color test figure for a ten man warband from Red Box Games.
I had to match a piece of art that had some unusual colors in it. There was a great deal of dark greenish black in the hood and loincloth of the art, and I had to figure out how to make that work here on these guys.
They still have to keep in line with all the other figures from this particular project, but it was hoped that I could make this one unit distinguishable from the other archer/ninja warband.
I don't know if I have ever taken such detailed images of the painting process of an entire unit such as this from the very start, so it should be interesting!
You will get a nice look at how the Shaded Basecoat technique works in this kind of situation, and the subsequent glazing. It might even show you why the technique was developed in the first place!!
