Over the last two weeks I've been giving Army Painter Quickshade Dip a bit of a work out. It all started with some Galatians.
As I was pulling out my next two Macedonian Pk elements, I thought that I'd quickly knock off an element of Galatian 4Wb that I had put aside as part of a Seleucid army. Quick undercoat of Dark Fleshtone, top coat of Elf Flesh, slap on some Quickshade - done. Well, mostly. You might notice that with two of these figures I then went back over with another layer of Elf Flesh, only to realise that actually, they looked better without it.
In my original figure selection I only had two Italeri naked Gauls left over, so I grabbed two half naked Esci figs to make up the quartet. While I painting these up, I thought...I must have two more naked Gauls somewhere... And low and behold, amongst the unpainted Gallic army that I based up ages back, there they were. So, after pulling them off their respective Warband elements...
...it only seemed right to give those a quick lick of paint. If I was really keen, I'd go back and give those torques some paint...
And, since I was simply slapping on paint...Thracians!
- 1 x General (4Ax)
- 2 x horsemen (LH) + 1 x peltasts (4Ax)
- 4 x peltasts (3 Ax) + 2 x peltasts (Ps)
- 2 x archers (Ps)
- 1 x Camp Followers (Ps)
At the same time I used my more normal undercoat + one layer + top layer (no Quickshade) style to knock off another Greek Allied cav and Auxilia to add either to my Hoplite Greek or Macedonian armies.
Not bad for a couple of week's work!
