Painting update late roman ballista and crew units   3 comments

Painting with citadel contrast paints . Ran out of the bespoke spray so spray painted with grey light then flesh to skin and grey to or red to the coats and cloaks . Snake brown to leather and dark wood brown to trousers .

Chain mail to the metal then black washed . Based and then basing mix added which was painted grey then dark wood washed then highlighted with none white . Slate was added before base mix and painted with black wash then grey . Tufts of grass added .

These will add to my late romans and Romano british armies providing some garrison units for sieges and battles too .
