Just a quick post charting my progress with the Woodland Indians. So far I've done five of them, and this blurry photo shows.
Although I'm keeping most of the paint jobs really simple, these guys are taking time as I don't want their warpaint to be too uniform so I'm basing each model on a different photo or painting such as the one below.
The other issue I've run into is that the warpaint has had the unforeseen consequence of making them models look less 'human' when they're finished; sort of less 'alive' than usual. In it's own way, this 'dehumanising' effect has highlighted one of the reasons many different cultures adopted forms of warpaint.
I've still got another 17 to go and half a dozen villagers, but I've hada fairly busy week, so I'm happy with my progress.
