More barbarians!  Another great kit!  The barbarian ďtemplarĒ is from the knight box with the special metal head that came with the barbarian sprue. 



A group shot of all of the completed barbarians so far:



And a better shot of the soldiers

Very nice. I really enjoy the muted feeling scheme, especially of the barbarians.

These are incredible savages!  :o
Iím loving the choices of color scheme as well as whateve technique you are using. The recesses and shadows are so dark and rich, it almost looks like a modified black lining. Can you share your painting technique? Also what do you use for bases? Finally, does Frostgrave use this many barbarians? It almost looks like a horde better suited for Oathmark.

Thank you!

I block paint the figures and then wash them in agrax earth shade, then go back over with the base color, and then highlight. 

The bases are the plastic bases that come with the figures.  I glue the sand/saw dust onto the base, wash them with burnt umber craft paint, then heavy dry brush of agrellan earth, then dry brush with karak stone.  I use green flock and static grass. 

The base number of soldiers that a wizard can hire is 8 figures for game but they can be different between games.  I just wanted enough painted to chose whatever I wanted or needed.

wonderful.

your results make it clear (if that was necessary) that where I've gone wrong with washes is not being willing to go back and add the base colours again to raised areas, and then highlights.
You get beautiful results with that approach - although a good chunk of that will be your own skill with the brush I suspect.

I use a similar approach. Block paint, wash, reapply base colors. But I donít also do highlights on top. I use the second application of the base color over the washed base color as the highlight. This saves me time, but Your results are more impressive. Also, I donít wash Agrax over everything. I use different washes depending on the area, so riekland flesh over flesh, sepia over bone, nuln oil over metals, etc. Again, Iím liking your results of just agrax over everything. Definitely makes the flesh shadowing more defined.
Cheers!

Iíve been painting for a while, but I think youíll be happier with your figures when you go back and highlight them.

I donít always just use the agrax, Iíve just been doing it on these Frostgrave figures because they donít have much armor.  If thereís a lot of armor Iíll use the nuln as well and Iím currently trying out the Carrorburg Crimson was on some demons.

Completed a handful of demons to test out color schemes and some ideas.



The wings are from the Bat Demon from Reaper Miniatures.  They are the soft plastic and were really easy to cut out and shave with a knife. Not 100% sold on the black armor.

black armour looks great to me - maybe a varnish if not used already?

The black armour looks pretty good to me, although the gold and red demons do pop a little more.
