It has been over a year since I did any painting on my dauntingly-large Bretonnian Army (a muster from Artois, featuring Earl de Gilderaux, Baron Monguillot, Sir Mattice Siebert, etc.). This weekend I painted eight more Men-at-Arms with halberds – part of the Earl’s castle guard, armed with voulges.
The four voulgiers I had painted over a year ago clearly contrast the ones I painted this weekend. The big difference? I started using washes while in Ireland last summer. Between base paints and washes, painting these eight new men-at-arms went faster than painting the four old ones!
I am satisfied with the paint job on these peasants. It’s not perfect, but it’s progress, and there are many more Bretons to paint…
I stuck with the same base scheme as before, as I had built (but not painted) the eight new ones before using texture paints or static grass. I am not worried about having a variety of shades and bases in one unit…must…keep…moving…forward….
