Victrix Iberian

Unit of Victrix Iberian Warriors.  Shield transfers by Little Big Men.

Tried two paint plans for the tunic.

  • Ghoul Skin by Reaper produced a green/grey with good coverage
  • Foundry linen triad.  Spotty coverage with poor layers.  End result is a sickly yellow color.  Had better luck just using the green shade color.

To cross the Alps, you must have Elephants!

A pair of Foundry Elephants for Hannibal’s army.

Base is a rather small 50mm square.  I may build out a larger tray that I can drop this smaller base into for games where a bigger base would work better.

Paint Plan

Elephant:  Espresso primer (dark, dark brown) worked up with Dusky skin (Reaper) (which is actually grey)

Howda:  Bastion grey, desert stone, desert stone + yellowed bone

Blanket:  Terracotta (Foundry), gory red, rach red

Troops:  White armor with red tunics.  Tried Reapers Grey Liner as a line filler, worked as a black ink.

Mahout:  Started skin with dark brown, worked up with Ruddy Brown (R)
