Hi all, These are two figures I had left unpainted from the 80s, though they may be late 70s models. These too, seem to suffer from a shinyness once I seal them. They were fairly quick (for me) paints, but I have a nostalgic feel for these guys. I think they are Grenadier - but not sure, and I had filed down the bottoms (!). I painted them up as followers for one of the characters in the campaign I DM.
When I first started perusing these forums I was really taken by this post: http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/42789-figures-from-the-stone-age/?hl=%2Bstone+%2Bage and have been wanting to do something along those lines, although not those techniques. I have been too focused on individual miniatures lately and this helped me to think in terms of groups. It was fun to think of them as a team with some similar colors but not all painted the same. I also decided to not think too much about it as I was doing it -- just use whatever colors I felt like at any given moment.
