AlanD - More Tiny Scotsmen (50 Points)


It is a little known fact that 'Fifty Shades of Grey' was originally set in Scotland during the English Civil Wars.


After a break painting gladiators, my next entry continues the 6mm ECW project with another 5 units of Covenanter cavalry. Following Ian's advice, I gave these a little wash. I used the Vallejo sepia wash (because I happened to have some), but diluted it further so that it didn't darken the figures too much.




Fifty shades of grey, fifty tiny Scotsmen on horses, and fifty points please! 

Nice work Dux! I think the sepia wash did a nice job in accentuating some of the details on these little gems.  Do you have a lot of Jocks left to do with this army?
...and 50 points for you! Well done.

    Or "Fifty Shades of Tartan" as we call Outlander :-)

    Regardless, this is Fifty Points of Awesome!

    Great work here. The wash definitely added that final touch to get these guys popping.
