|Eh, what? Don't think I've seen this before. At least, not for a while.|
First up, I made a point of trying to speed up the painting of the Spearmen. I applied the bone colour, gave it a wash, and only waited for it to partially dry (it was dry on the raised areas where I wanted to paint) before going over it again with a bone-coloured highlight. So that was 2 swings at the potentially wasted paint.
|15 Spearmen, now with bone-coloured robes and shields. Add a little red and flesh, and these guys will nearly be done.|
So then I looked into the case of Dark Elves and found some other likely candidates. These were not models destined for Duelling Paintbrushes, thanks largely to the fact that they already had some paint on them at the start of the challenge. Of course, this was also the reason they were ready for the bone colour on their robes, so I guess such a compromise was inevitable.
|That's right, you're not meant to be involved here. You should feel bad.|
|This guy seems more defiant about the situation.|
|How they looked at the end of the night.|
|10 partially painted Crossbowmen, none of whom belong in Duelling Paintbrushes|
|And a couple of Spearmen in the same boat.|
