Esci Set 238 Muslim Warriors Part 1

I can't help it but during the Arnhem project I have to paint other things. I get bored when I have to paint the same things whole the time. Therefor I added a rule for myself. Not more as three things on the painttable. Only when something is finished I'm allowed to start something new. And these six figures are a result of this rule.
 

 
 
 
I wanted to keep these simple so I worked with not to many colors. I started with a white (Revell 5)undercoat and then I gave them a Vallejo Grey Wash. Then I gave them all a white drybrush. After that I painted all the skin parts with Tanned Flesh (GW), and a Flesh Wash (GW). For the red I used Blood Red (GW), for the guns Brown (Revell 85) and Boltgun Metal (GW) with a Mud Wash (GW). For the leather parts I used Snakebite Leather (GW) also with a Mud Wash (GW). Gold and Silver are also from Games Workshop. Black is from Revell (8).
 
They painted real quick and many more will follow. From this set there are nine more waiting for some paint (Esci 238 Muslim Warriors). After that some other sets will follow. Are in cue line:
 
They are also an addition to the earlier painted figures from this sets:
 
Here are the close ups of these painted figures.
 











 
 
I hope you like them!
 
Next time another update on the Arnhem Project. Keep watching!

  10. Nice job on these Peter. I like your rule about the 3 items on the workbench. I try to keep it a 2... but 3 sounds more appealing!
