In the photos on the Baccus website I saw that they only put three light cavalry per stand. This allowed me an opportunity to use bigger boulders than I used on the foot troops. The "large boulders" are Woodland Scenics Medium Talus.
The figures are still glossy from the Coat d'Arms shader, but that will tone down when given a final coat of Dullcoat. Some of the sculpting makes me suspect they should be shirtless, but I descided to stick with the same colors as the foot troops. Perhaps if I add some more light cavalry they will be a bit more brazen!
I also got a basecoat on eight of the 1/1200 Quinqueremes.
It's just a quick "sketch" of a paint job while I figure things out. I would like multiple wood shades but not go overboard (was that some sort of pun?). For the deck I used Tamiya Deck Tan, The hull is Model Master Acrylic Wood, and the oars are DeltaCeramcoat Trail Tan.
|Despite several attempts, I can't get this photo upright!|
I will try and stick with just these three colors,, leaving a final wash to tie them together. The sails have just been given a quick white wash so far. Detail on the sails to follow.
That's it for now.
