Dark Ages Welsh 3

Another week, another short update on the Welsh project.

Since last week I have managed to blockpaint all of the 18 Combrogi, add a little detail such as trimmings, tartan patterns etc and slap on some washes and start to highlight them. Hopefully I can finish them off this week and then start painting the Teulu. I think I will split these into two groups of eight men each, as batchpainting large groups is rather boring to say the least. Besides, you only need six Teulus for Dux Brit (which is what I'm primarily painting for at the moment) so I can save the other half for later.

Join me for another update in a week!


  1. God progress! Nice to here that you painting for Dux Brit, then I concentrate on the Saxons...

    Best regards Michael

  2. Thanks guys!

    With the wash on, the miniatures always look like cr*p and I'm ready to abandon the project. But once I start highlighting them, it feels like the home stretch and the motivation comes right back.

  3. Didn't come across your blog until now. Some good and inspiring stuff here!
    Painting in large batches is indeed monotone and sometimes boring but well worth the result in the end. Keep it up!

  4. Thanks Mattias! I'm a fan of your blog as well. Hopefully I can be as inspiring as you guys. :)
