The arrows are simply made from thin brass rod with paper fletches added. The shafts have been primed and the arrows will get painted as the groundwork is completed.
The figures are in process with my current focus on the armor. As in the past with bronze lamellar armor I started with a base of gold printers inks mixed with Burnt Umber to take some of the brightness out and add a stronger carrier to hold up against the later washes and glazing. What you see below is immediately after the first wash of Burnt Umber.
The trousers on this figure were also painted (a start) but really nothing else yet done. Both figures had the Burnt Umber wash applied to the leather bits (shoes and belts, etc.) to begin the process of developing the texture and depth.
