Redoubt Dendra Dudes
Well, these six have been sitting around for awhile; I ordered them from Miniature Service Center when they were clearing out their stock of Redoubt several years ago. I had intended to use them as chariot warriors, and may still do, but for now they are palace guards. I replaced their lead spear shafts with brass rod - sturdier for gaming. I also carved off their shield strap and Green Stuff'd the left pauldron where the strap had been. Painting was straight-forward as I decided to give them uniform colors - they were then given a Minwax Tudor Satin stain. The bronze is a mixture of Vallejo Bronze & Copper (about 50:50) some gold and silver added as highlights before the stain.
