Blocking in the armour and leather working, using GW’s fantastic Boltgun Metal (coz it’s a nice metal) and the excellent Snakebite leather contrast coz I’m a lazy git and it looks really cool

Next up, contrast Blood Angels Red for fabrics and Retributor Armour for a bit of bling. Then hitting them up with some washes

Going to stick with Halfords white matt primer, the Grey is too dark and everything looks muddy seeing as contrast paints are my new shiny toy

But I am using Reaper MSP tanned skin for the flesh (love their triad sets), need to get more but it’s all sold out – BALLS!

Horsies - contrast paints for the win

Primed these and all the rest with Halfords white primer (can never get Wraithbone any time i’ve been up north OTT @lloyd has hogged all the Wraithbone 😉 😉 ), normally use Halfords Grey with a white zenithal but as these all have a lot of exposed flesh the grey is too dark and makes them look muddy as can be seen in the early Romans

Hastati and Velites to start
