Soldiers 90mm Knight

Discussion in 'Painting Techniques' started by Hardy, Nov 22, 2008.

    Hi all, this will be my next paint job. Its going to be this kit from Soldiers, got it for a tenner on e-bay! Going to paint him in heraldry of a knight of Yarmouth which is my home town. The heraldry consists of 3 lions with fish tails, black surcoat which will be nice. As usual very early days...

    Thanks all.

    Periklis. The hair is painted by using naples yellow oil paint straight from the tube, you paint tiny tufts of paint and then create furrows by drawing the brush tip through it whilst its still wet. This hair will be black, so when its completely dry I will wash it. Hope this helps. Hardy
