Berber paint plan

Always, always, always record you paint plan.  It’s only been 2 months since I worked on the first Berber unit & I struggled to remember which paints to use where.  The Miniature Design Studio Berbers are wonderful to paint.  The clean lines make for fast work – this latest unit of 24 were completed in less than two weeks (about 10 hours).

Prime White with Rifle Butt (Howard Hues) undercoat.

  • Tunic:  Chalk White (Vallejo) and Dirt (V)
  • Hat:  Astronomican Grey (GW)
  • Robes:  Flat Red (V) undercoat with Beige Red(V) top coat; or French Mir. Blue (V)
  • Spears & boots:  Saddle Brown (V)
  • Shield:  Saddle Brown (V) base coat, Burnt Cad. Red (V) top coat
  • Bow:  Tan Yellow (V)
  • Bow case & Scabbard:  Tan Yellow w/Saddle Brown
  • Arrow fetching: Astronomican Grey
  • Spear tip, shield boss:  Chainmail (GW)
  • Flesh:  Snake Bite Leather (GW)

All except the white robes were washed with Dark Sepia from Secret Weapon.

    They look great! Love the leathery-brown shade over the shields. Really makes the unit come together awesomely.

    Very cool Rich! I will have to wrap up my Norman armored spearmen and get some photos posted.
