Well I have jumped again, I have been keen to start my Saxons for a very, very long time and I've had it in the back of my mind how I was going to do them. I plan on not spending as much time on them as I do with my other armies (especially as my free time is very limited at the moment) and with my brother's army painter exploits I decided that this was the path I would take. (army painter on 15mm AB Naps, Can he be serious I hear you say!!! Well yeah but just as a wee test to see if it works out) .
The only thing to work out was what shade of army painter (I decided on dark tone) and what colours to use for whites (Foundry white shade and I have a feeling I should have went with the mid tone!).
Anyway I blocked in the colours (missed a couple of details and maybe the green is too bright) and painted on the AP (hard to control the stuff when it is dipped) and I have to say I am really pleased with the results.
It took about 25 mins to paint these four and that isn't at all bad, and once dry I will be painting in all the main detail I have missed, a couple of highlights on the white plus I'll try and dull down the green.
Still I am pretty chuffed with the result as they look not too bad for the time I spent on them!!! Will I be doing all my figures with army painter from now on? Na I doubt it, but it does look to be a handy tool to get some wee men painted up ASAP!
