Victrix Armoured Gallic Warriors - WIP
Touched up and highlights added after a Minwax staining over a basic block paint job. Awaiting an order of LBMS shield transfers to complete them. I picked up this set from a US ebay seller and ordered the transfers direct from Victrix.
After spraying the Minwax staining with Testors Dullcote, the flesh and metal areas were given a wash of Vallejo inks. The flesh was then given highlights to areas like the noses and hands. The mail coats and helmets were dry brushed with silver and bronze.
I used an old medium sized brush when brushing on the Minwax stain (Tudor Satin). I also have a jar of thinner handy to thin down and blot excess pooled areas - mostly the legs/feet and edges of tunics/capes.
I opted for more muted colors than the previous Warlord Britons - figuring the larger shields with colorful transfers would brighten them up enough.
After these guys are done, I hope to start on the Victrix EIR Legionaries when they arrive - I received an email from Victrix a couple of days ago indicating they were finally shipped. They had run out of the Attacking set and it took a while for them to get resupplied due to the current condition. Until next time, stay healthy and enjoy your hobby the best you can.
