This order is just getting more and more interesting! i sit down to bash out the colors and i feel like im back doing empire when i was ten years old. First i have today a picture of the Captain of the new regiment. I went with a dusky orange and after the wash i was glad i did, the color is soft enough to blend with the skin tone and feel of the miniature but its colorful enough to make the unit distinct and give it some personality!
The troops so far
When i moved onto the rest of the troops i decided to choose two colors and alternate them to give a militaristic and uniform style but keep the Mediterranean coloring. Using the orange again i chose a contrasting white and followed a simple pattern of white on orange and vice versa.
These are still pre dip and have a few parts left to be painted but already they have a sense of being a real impacting unit. Stark and strong on the battlefield.
