Warlord Eastern Archers
These came in the mail today - not bad as I only ordered them last week through Maelstrom Games in the UK. I also got the mounted general (Maximus). They painted up really quickly with basic block painting and a Minwax Tudor stain. I did highlight the clothing a bit too. I also used a hair drying to get the Minwax to dry faster - probably should've waited overnight, but I'm gaming tomorrow and wanted these done. These guys will be Elite Archers for my early EIR army - Ballistic Skill 4!
Before checking the mail after coming back from lunch, I had started on the Front Rank Chasseurs. Gave them a black undercoat and cut 50X50mm bases from some 3mm plywood I got from Jo Ann's. I'll get back to these after Maximus and his dog are done. Plan to use the Chasseurs in place of the Cuirassiers for the Enfilade! Black Powder game.
