With some 120+ figures still needing to be completed I looked for a cheating method. Lets see how this goes.
The "unpainted" figures actually have a white undercoat on already so at least I am not starting from bare metal. They are also stuck on bases but in the vast majority of cases that is as far as I have travelled.
First up are 5 bases of Crossbowmen. I gave them a quick coating, all over, of German Orange Ochre. May be a strange colour but some of the completed figures have the old GW Foundation Tau Sept Ochre on them so this might not be too far off the mark.
Next step will be to add all the metal armour
Then the flesh
Then add some the livery colours and the odd piece of clothing to break them up.
So 2032Z and the figures are in the airing cupboard drying.
Now 2050Z and the metal and flesh done. This includes helmets, breast plates on a couple and the Crossbow bolts and the "end" piece
