hellian swordsmen

This is Battle Valor Games Hellian Swordsmen code Q2000. Well that took some time but now that the hard work is done (colour schemes, typical standard etc) the rest will be a breeze.

They turned out good, even with the splinter camo on some of the helmets. When I paint splinter camo, my secret is to just paint brown branches with green leaves. Probably not exact but…

prep ur minis for paint

I will now endeavour to describe and detail the steps, tools and methods I use to turn a leadpile into an army. This is in no way an attempt to say that this is the only way, the best way or the fastest way. This is merely my way. My way is designed to make…
