This is my 100th posting :o)
A cute army to paint with a lot of "fire power/missile troops" 6 figure Bowmen bases, their job is to hold the center battle line of the army and prey their Ghulam's Cavalry (3Cv) and Light horse (2Lh) flank their opponents! The 6Bw elements should be mounted on one 40mm x 40mm bases but went for single bases instead, shields hand painted by me as usual, tried to use different light pascal colours /stripes for the infantry which look fine.... The usual flocking of the bases by me, but a different approach... I primed the Buff Fine Ballast with Ceramcoat "Flesh" acrylic colour paint put the stands aside to completely dry, the oil heater going on in the house helped dry the bases quickly...anyway... I dry brush over the flesh colour with Ivory acrylic paint and added the grass turfs ... got an interesting result, the bases look like or show "sunset or sunrise" effect? :o) what do you think guys?
Once again some photos came out a little blurry, sorry about that, perhaps I should use my good eye instead of my patched eye during photo shoots... :o)
