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 .

  1. That’s the sort of artillery park I need! Great work!

  2. Thanks! Been meaning to pant these guys up for awhile. Should be useful against those barbarian hordes.

    • Definately- I think artillery play a bit like elephants in that they dominate an opponent’s thinking out of all proportion to the damage they would likely inflict.
      Ps. I think that sentence made sense! It’s too early for my brain!
