Back into the red again...

It's been a long time since you have seen some Red Box Games figures here.  I have been painting them all along... you just haven't seen them :-)

This is a group of stealthy archers that was painted recently.

Once again, another exercise in those subtle browns.  I really enjoyed getting the greenish hues into the otherwise reddish brown hood!

I then too that same color and used it to create some more interest in the yellowish mid-tones.

Many more to come, just like the Beastmen.

A motley crew

Here you go!  The complete crew for Clash for a Cure.

At last, bases and miniatures all together, setting the scene.

I have a variety of pirate minis here... some Reaper, and even some 7th Seas.  That means I will have to make some more bases like these and start creating more pirate crews!

I also had a lot of fun with all the varieties of browns.  Some had more green, more yellow, more red, and so on.

Varying the intensity of the browns is also part of the contrast hat trick.

Some of the browns were made more muted by having an even balance of green and red.  The two contrasting colors actually negate each other when mixed in equal amounts.

Otherwise, having more of the red, green or yellow show through in the browns will make it 'brighter'

I hope you enjoyed this set!!
