After a few painting sessions I have managed to put all the base colours on them and they look terrible!They will look even worse soon. I have started to use the so called "magic wash", a mix of floor polish and ink. This wash will not only shade the miniatures but also protect them like a coat of varnish.
When all the 28 miniatures have been shaded the real work begins. This larger picture shows how well the details have been blacklined by the wash and also the glossy sheen.
Next up will be the highlighting of all the basecolours.
