Saga Welsh Warrior Unit

I finally finished the first of my Welsh Warrior units for SAGA. All the figures are Gripping Beast.

The remaining images are closer shots of them. I used Army Painter Dark dip, painting it on with a brush, and then spraying a matte varnish over that.

 I am still sitting on the fence with regards to the dip. On one hand it gives the models something they really need - a hard protective coating to resist greasy fingers from rubbing off the paint.

 I do wish it was more of a water based product however so that I could dilute it down so as not to have it at full strength all the time. There are some areas that just need a little shading, but overall after spraying the matte overcoat I am pleased with the final results.

I am now working on the next warrior unit. As well the Levies are almost all glued together & soon to be primed.

  1. Vallejo and GW washes can be watered down or cut with clear medium (or Future) depending on whether you want glossy or matte finish.

    Your colour palette has a good dark age feel. You might consider that buff tones makes a good highlight on blonde hair that after a wash makes it look more natural and less Lego-man yellow.
