Painting Essex Pike   Leave a comment

Spray undercoat white. Add dwarf flesh. Orange for the coat colour. The base one solar orange. Aedeptus grey trousers. Then bleached bone for the bags colours and cuffs. Then various browns for the leather. Then the hair and hats rhinos hide. Armour in black. Then brown army painter strong tone wash. Next bring out highlights with blazing orange and brown where required. Finish off faces, hands with dwarf flesh. Correct mistakes.

Ensign gets red instead of orange and orange sash and feathers. Chain mail armour then nuln oil wash. Then highlights with original.

Testors dullcote applied. Too many incidents with frosting with other spray varnishes to want to use any other.

Fix to base and fit pikes. Mix brown and Windsor and newton base gel and apply to base. I decided to go for a 60×60 pike block base with ensign leading push of pike pistol at the ready.

Finally graveyard earth drybrush then autumn flock added to base.
