With Warlord’s Rapid Deployment Paint System, it has never been easier to get your SPQR warband tabletop ready. Warlorder Andrés shows us how with this Gaul Warriors painting Guide…
For this article, we are using a miniature from the Gaul Tribesmen Archers box; due for release late August!
These archers are also available in the SPQR game set. Kick-start your Gaul warriors collection with this great value box, giving you a whole host of warriors to paint and battle with, as well as all the rules and dice required to play the fast-paced game:
Stage 1: Priming
The miniature was primed with the Leather Brown Colour Primer Spray. This choice of colour serves as an ideal basecoat for some portions of the miniature and saves doing it by hand later.
Stage 2: Basecoating
The following basecoats were then carefully applied to each of the following areas:
- Skin: Caucasian Skin
- Tunic: Green Webbing
- Trousers: Danger Red
- Belt & Shoes: Wood Brown
- Arrow Fletchings: Pure White
- Belt Buckle and Dagger Hilt: Greedy Gold
- Straps on Scabbard & Bow: Khaki Webbing
- Arrow Heads: Plate Mail Metal
The other brown areas – The hair, bow and arrow shafts were left alone. The leather brown primer is sufficient as the basecoat prior to shading.
Stage 3: Shading
Using a large brush, Strong Tone Quickshade was liberally applied to the model, ensuring it ran into the recesses. Once complete, the same brush was immediately wiped clean, before being used to remove all the excess shade, particularly on the raised flatter areas of the miniature.
Set the miniature aside to dry after this for a minimum of 24 hours.
Stage 4: Finishing Touches
Having left the miniature to dry for over 24 hours you can move onto the next stage, varnishing & basing.
And There You Have It!
Utilising this system will allow you to prep whole units or even entire armies for the table in no time at all. The quickshade allows you to get remarkable results for the relatively small amount of time invested. Ideal for getting your models to the tabletop and scratching that gaming itch!
