|There are a lot of low brims in this set.|
Basing was a bit of a challenge. I was using Vallejo Desert Paste for the first time. I have their Black Lava paste which is great, but the desert sand one is much finer, more liquid.and quite (too!) bright. In the end (and this is more for my future reference than any recommendation) I baes the base with GW Desert Sand, brushed the paste on and gave it a dilute wash of Vallejo Sepia. Then a patchy application of diluted Army Painter Dark tone was applied, a dry brush of a couple of patches mid grey and then dry brushed the entire base with Army Painter Skeleton Bone.
It is good to have my own figures to play Western games with now. I still have the citizens, some Mexican Bandito's and some Cowboy Orc's in the pile, but they will have to wait their turn.
As a side note, this group goes to show how depressing parts of my year has been. They are my first painted figures since the end of April and first 28mm figures of 2015. Hopefully next year allows for more energy and opportunity!
