As others have said fantastic brushwork, you manage to use bright vibrant colours without allowing them to be guady, something  I struggle with when  using brighter colours.
As someone suggested Westwind are a possible for bow armed skirmishers and also BTD. Westwind aren't great at showing their Arthurian stuff off on their website but it is nice. They do a seperate heads arrangement for the Arthurians though the bowmen all come as bare headed. You could buy a  pack of helmeted heads for variety but I did some head swaps with the BTD ones wearing caps.
There's a pic here of the 12 I did.

Here's the round up of my Arthurian/Romano-British from the LPL...

My round 9 entry was 'Ad Coit Celidon' - 'In Celidon Forest' (being one of the legendary 12 Battles of Arthur)




Stunning warband!  I love the bold colors.  You are a gifted painter.

You are no slouch yourself. I am full of admiration for your take on these same figures.

Hi Captain !

Wich colors do you use for yours horses !?

Bonjour Byblos.

The colours I use on my horses are:

Spray-paint matt dark brown undercoat, then...

Red-brown horses = Inscribe/Palmer Prism (craft paint) 'Burnt Sienna' with VMC bright orange mixed in for highlights (VMC 'Red Leather' as a base would give a similar finish, but not quite as deep a colour)
Mid-brown horses = GW 'Mournfang Brown'
Light brown horses = VMC 'Flat Earth'
Dark brown horses = GW 'Rhinox Hide'
Grey / white / black horses = Inscribe/Palmer Prism (craft paint) black and white mixed in various proportions.

For the highlights on all the brown colours, I just gradually mix small additional amounts of white into the base colour.
Occasionally, for tonal variation, I mix in another very light brown colour instead of white - like VMC 'Iraqi Sand' or VMC 'Desert Yellow'.

Wow! This is amazing stuff!

One of the things I like most of this thread -and Koyote's!- is how inspiring they are for my own painting. It's not just the painting, but the motivation. I am one of those slow painters that struggles to finish a project, as I become bored easily. Thanks to threads like this, I find the inspiration to go on.

Thank you very much, sir!

Thank you  :)

Long running projects that I come back to and keep adding to, seem to be the way most of my stuff goes these days...

Even when you think you've finished a particular collection for a particular project, there's always so much new stuff coming out, that you can always keep coming back and adding to it... I think of all my current / recent projects (WW2 N Africa, Wars of the Roses, Twilight of Britannia, A Game of Thrones, Napoleonic naval landing parties, late C17th, and early feudal) all as very much alive. I have stuff ready to paint for all of them, and I dip in and out of all of them - a little bit here, a little bit there.
Keeps things interesting...  :)
