The third batch of archers have been prepared. The progress so far is:
Undercoat is Revel Black (No. 6) heavily thinned with Humbrol Enamel Thinners. It goes on like a heavy, but very runny, wash. It dries very quickly and leaves the detail easy to see. WARNING - the smell of the thinners will blow your head off so go careful!! I needed a stint in the garden afterwards to clear my head.
(In the background some mailed archers have been prepared and started. More later.)
The 'recruits' painted;
More recruits painted;
An officer added;
I think that is all my 'Crusader Miniatures' unarmoured Norman archers painted now. This batch needs basing once I've done another casualty (or perhaps a penon bearer) to give 3 figs per base.
