Re: 15mm Elamites

A few more shots. Edit: A few of the stands were sprayed with DullCote while it was humid in the garage, so they have a light grey coating on them in these pictures. The solution was to take them into the house (non-humid) and spray them with DullCote again while they were in a cardboard box. The co...

Re: 15mm Assyrian Wars: Assyria

Those figures look great! The work on the shields and little details like the patterns on the chariot body (including the floor) are some of the best I have seen.

Re: 15mm Elamites

Half the army is completed (except for Dullcote). The camp is assembled and has a base coat of earth brown. The miniatures for the rest of the Bow Levy arrived in the mail yesterday!

Re: Bohemian Slavs

Those look excellent. The horses are painted particularly well; some of the best I have seen. Can you tell us your technique?

Re: 15mm Elamites

Re: 15mm Elamites

The first few stands have been painted, washed using Mineax Polyshades Tudor Satin, and the bases painted earth brown, dry brushed with light brown, and finally a sand color. The next step is to finish the bases and spray with Testors Dull Cote.

The figures are all Old Glory brand from their Amorite, Syrian, and Babylonian ranges. The only conversions are the Baby...
