Next the Army painter dark tone is applied.  Shields finished in red.  I chose red to complete the uniform look and tie in with the red on the cloth and to limit the palette to tie the unit together as a snake men force, the Red Shields perhaps or the Red Legion.  Red goes well with green I think and evokes Aztec ruins and deadly snake men.  Finally I added a thraka green wash to the bronze to add a verdi gris effect to simulate weapons kept in damp swamp conditions and/ or coated in green venom.  Bronze retains its strength and sharpness even when verdi gris effects it unlike iron which simply rusts.

Final stages will be touching up and highlighting the skin areas and basing to follow.  Have a new swamp base effect to try out.
