Test pieces

Did a couple of test pieces for my Brettonian Archers…  I’m pretty happy with how they came out…  definitely gave me some clue about how to go about painting them.  I want to make sure they all have a different look..  So in painting them I would go color by color and just paint different stuff on each guy…  Given that fact that this will be repeated over 60+ models, I think it will work fine as long as I make sure I put some variation in the base colors I’m working with

Second bit was I wanted to see how much of a pain the backside it would be to knock out ten skaven clanrats at a go…  So I sat down yesterday and knocked these guys out.  I think that I need to take more of the same approach I took with the Bretts…  Ie, change out the color series between batches so that I end up with a truly motley looking group.  For XMas my wife got me a set of what she called “old main coin collecting goggles” AKA according to the box a “dual power magnifying head-visor” —  They are super stong and as a test I did the Skaven eyes with them… which made the whole process super easy.
