|The freemen of Wessex|
The photos are all with my iphone6 with typical editing for color and light corrections on the same screen, highlights mainly. I just did a bunch of remodeling in my game room so I hope to get my lightbox and Canon back in action in the near future.
I'm pretty happy with them. I learned A LOT painting them. I haven't painted much 28mm so they were a real challenge for me. There were three things that were very useful for me when painting them.
First a Color Wheel.
They are readily available and inexpensive on Amazon or a local craft store such as Michael's in the US. I did not use the mixing side much as most of the modern paint ranges have a pretty good selection of colors to make triads and or layers. I use Vallejo mainly along with a few Reaper Master Series paints and the Games Workshop washes. I used the other side to select colors so I could achieve schemes that were complementary and pleasing to the eye. A $5 tool most everyone should have in their kit.
Second was the Dark Age color palette from 1000 Foot General.
Thank you! Awesome resource. I found that some of the colors were maybe off a bit, but it was a great place to start. I struggled with a soft yellow. I'll be working on that again in a future unit.
Third and last was Painting War #7 by Albero Mateos. Available from Northstar.
Great resource. Some of the paint schemes are insane the number of layers used. I'll admit I skipped some layers. Really helpful on a lot of things. If you want to go beyond tabletop standard I think this will help. I hope I achieved something a bit nicer than tabletop.
Here's a little video I did of them for fun.
It will be a while before I'm ready for Saga but in the meantime I hope to use them on the tabletop playing Blood Eagle.
Thanks for peeking in. Be sure to leave a comment if you liked them or hated them. All criticisms are welcome.
