Looks really good!

I especially like the skin tone variations.

Thank You Wmyers.

The truth is. "Americana", a low cost brand of craft store paint, has so many great variations of browns, I have used them for practically all of my WGF Zulus. I have also used a couple of Reaper Master Series shades. But I have 'yet' to even use a single drop of wash on any of my 3 completed Zulu 'regiments' (60 figures in all).
Though I am constantly wondering, how would a single, "Brown" or "Chestnut" wash look on this / that brown skin tone? Granted, 'Chestnut" is usually recommended more for animal skin and fur, rather than flesh tones.

Thanks again.

My own ones are in repair mode after I overdid the wash. Will get back to them at some point.

Those are looking pretty sweet, Jack!

Heres the 3rd unit that I have completed. I hope its bright enough, just to be certain they are a Redshield unit. Middle aged married warriors.
That generally meant late30's and up. Although it was not uncommon for men not to be granted permission to be married until they were in their 40's.

Bryon,
Thanks for 'asking' about them, and motivating me to get off the ol' duff, and re-post them. Im still trying to get the hang of how large to make the file when I upload it, so it gives a clear picture, but doesnt overwhelm the entire screen.
As mentioned earlier, I welcome and hope others will post pictures they have of their own finished work in this WGF series. THE MORE THE MERRIER!

Ironically while I have 'Completed' 60 Zulu's (3 regt's), I have yet to actually finish even a single of my 50 Colonial British troops. That darn white webbing, (belts - harness, etc) keeps intimidating me. LOL I keep seeing where the hands get offline and it becomes a bit of a frustration, to be nice about it. :x
BUT.. i thought what the hell.. I'll post a shot or two of a few that I have done the most work with. It might get me motivated to get back to them the next time I need a break from my Dark Age Fantasy Project.
You can clearly see, they are most certainly a W I P!

Meanwhile, the rest of the 'platoon' await in the 'barracks' like good soldiers. (In various stages of.. dismemberment). :twisted:
