More Arthurians Painted

Amazingly (for me) I've managed to paint up a few more Arthurians from Gripping Beast. This time it's some Commanipulares/Teulu types.

I've nicknamed this one 'Arthur' ... can't think why?

The shield is plain white as I intend to get some LBMS transfers. I did try painting one free-hand but it looked ... ridiculous.

The blond hair/beard on this one was GW Sankebite Leather, GW Bubonic Brown, GW Bleached Bone.

You just can't beat painting figures with lots of chainmail and armour :-)

Having bought another 12 palettes of Foundry paint in their recent new website 20% sale (12 palletes = £72 = free postage), I thought I'd try out a splash of colour here. The helmet plume/crest is Foundry Royal Purple, whilst the tunic is Foundry Deep Blue.

I felt that as higher status warriors they would be more likely to have expensively coloured clothing... ?

The red is a bit powerful perhaps (maybe it's a new tunic?) - it's GW Merchrite Red followed by Foundry Bright Red Shade/Mid. Further figures will use Foundry Madder Red or Brick Red to give a more natural colour.

Next on the painting table are some Artizan Arthurians, the armoured chaps with spears.

Nice work there. I like the red against the leather - very effective.
