Fifteen shades of... brown?

Fifteen shades of... brown?

Postby Black Guardian » 11 Apr 2015

well, I don´t know if it´s really fifteen, probably more like 10 if you don´t count the more yellowish colors - but it felt like alot of brown during painting, mixing up all the different shades, highlights, etc.

All except one of the above are Elhiem figures, just the leftmost mini is on of mine.
Also, two of the guys have brownish fantasy camo schemes, closeups here:

Exactly what I´m planning to do - not exactly Takur Ghar, but a scenario loosely based on the events that transpired there, for two convention demo games in june :grin:
Rangers are already in the pipeline and will appear throughout the next weeks.

Thank you all for your kind words!
