arabs (try out)

hi guys

I am playing around with some technics to try to speed up my painting. Now this is not to win competitions but to use them in some wargames. so instead of highlighting and shading i use some drybrushing and a dark wash mixed with a matt varnish. Al in al the look oke although a bit shiny. so perhaps an extra matt-varnish is nessesery ? anywhay jult let me know what you think about them…

I don't know what to do aout the shiny part, if you have to do anything at all. I think they look fine! I recognize ESCI and the lone Airfix-figure. And the other odd figure, Strelets? Anyhow, nice to see these! And nice surroundings too!

Those look great. It's amazing what you can achieve with some dry brush and washes - especially if you are working with good sculpts.

I agree with all the opinions: they look great for a wargames table, dykio :thumbup:

There are several figures from Hät Dervish Warriors set, Susofrick. I have recognized because I used some of them in my "Gordon meets the Mahdi" diorama. ;-)

Best regards.
