Experimenting with tartan

...or at least a sloppy facsimile. :-) My Wild Men of the Forest need some extra oomph, beyond terrible tattoos. I found an old tutorial on Brushtralls and decided to give it a try. Here is a quick "Honey-its-time-to-go-to-work-are-you-painting-hurry-up" take on it.

I used Greatcoat Gray for the base color on the guy to the left, and Cygnar Blue Base on the fellow to the right. The gray doesn't show up very well in the pictures, but is decent in person. The fig on the right needs to have one more light tone painted in the inside of the Desert Yellow stripes, and a little tidying done around the edges.

You can see the rough idea of it, though. I'm happy enough with the effect, considering that these poor bastards are mostly going to be hacked apart in the first two rounds of combat. At least I get to recycle them! :-)

Thanks for reading,
Magnus
