The minis are Corvusbellis 100years series

I first fix the bases.
I paint the bases with Earth brown, ink with Brown ink ant brush with dark sand. Then when the minies are painted I use som sort of static grass and or flock depending on the army type.

In this case its a loth of metal on the minies that makes them easy to paint.

Valejo Gunmetal using a flat bruch dry brushing the minis heavy over all metal parts, like blades, helmets and armour parts.
Games Wrokshop Boltgun metal, same teqnic as above but a lighter brybrush.
Games Workshop Mithril Silver, as above but wery light.

Then I use a list of colors that I allways use

1 base color and 1 to many diffrent Highlights of veryation
eg
Skin tones
Flat brown (it face or a loth of skin surface), followed by GW Dwarf Flesh and then by Valejo Basic flesh.

And the I work with one color at the time on all the minis in the batch, to save time. I never paint more then 8 bases at the time in one batch.

Ill post the list of colors I use IF my friend composing the list says OK.

And then I use the leadword KISS, its just rank and file, IF you cant paint it you cant see it.

Then when the batch is done I give them a quick touch up if neede .

Those look great, I'd be pleased if I could paint them that well at all. Speed painting and still getting that result...

The Corvus Belli minis are brilliant to, I'm inspired to get my celts army going now using their minis.
