Latest Galatian WIP
So here the are boys (easy to tell they are boys!) in their pre-varnish state; they are fully painted, aside from shields and metallics. Last night I washed them using a very much diluted coat of Ronseal walnut woodstain, which has brought out the musclature nicely (but unfortunately you can't really make it out from the photo, which is again too light; try clicking on it for a slightly better view). When I take the next photo I'll take more care.
I was very pleased with the woodstain wash, and will be using it on pretty well all of my future painting.
There will be another post soon on an unrelated but very exciting Ancients topic later today; stay tuned...
