I discovered this picture when I was looking through my archived photographs. I painted these GW WFB Empire halberdiers just under 12 years ago using Citadel Colours over a sprayed white undercoat. I had no notion of highlighting, shading, washing, drybrushing or, well, of anything really beyond the basic techniques I has used as a boy when applying Humbrol paints to my Bandai tank kits. Years later I applied a not particularly effective wash to these miniatures, signs of which have gathered rather unconvincingly on top of the slashes on the several of the lads' pluderhosen. The picture was taken pursuant to an online auction. I have no regrets. Really.
