first complete stand of crossbowmen !

I completed my first crossbowmen miniatures base today, with three of Bohemond of Taranto's crossbow followers on it :) Here's some steps as I painted, and then photos showing them from different angles!

Here they are with the incomplete Bohemond of Taranto Command figures. Still gotta do his banner bearer so I can finish him off!

Painting JR Miniatures Desert Dwellings

I've started painting some JR Miniatures desert dwellings today. I coated them with Kommando Khaki, which blended completely with my board, so then I washed it with Citedal's sepia wash to bring out the details and add some contrast. Wooden parts are painted bestial brown, with badab black wash over the top, and inside of windows painted black. Here's some photos as I painted it up!

In real life, it doesn't look as dark/orange as the finished photo looks.
