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.

  2. These are beautiful and sadly put mine to shame. Like you I relied on the shield transfers for the extra colour. They do really help and there are some wonderful designs. Well doe with these figures.

    1. Thanks a lot, Ray. I stuck with only 4 main colors - kind of repetitive look, but with the shields, should look okay. Kindest regards, Dean
