To start with I need to remove the cobwebs and dust and finish assembling the warriors. There were also a few missing bases which I need to scrounge up.

I have cleaned up and finished the features on the base and then given it vallejo brown wash all over.I have cleaned up and finished the features on the base and then given it vallejo brown wash all over.

I am not sure to do with the basing of the warriors, I thinking just some wasteland style basing and some army painter tufts. Also I would like to run some cables between to top of the Howdah and the front platform but I need to find a twisted string in the right sort of scale.
