This Saurus spearman is part of the very first unit where the Shaded Basecoat technique was used to paint mass amounts of figures in a compressed time frame... designed to be indistinguishable from my "old" one by one methods.
I mixed various brush on primers with regular paint to create the initial layers.
Here's the first blog post showing how this method was done. It is also the centerpiece of the Painting Pyramid video series. There are 53 different titles, which cover all aspects of painting, basing and even terrain! They are all available directly through me on USB drives. Feel free to contact me if you are interested!
