'Martian' Spear armed Unit.
I struck upon a few problems with what I wanted to do with the figures....firstly I wanted to get rid of the Games Workshop square bases....try as I might the figures are very well glued down to the square bases - so I am stuck with them. Secondly, whatever the figures have been lacquered with tends to repel additional painting. I have seemed to get by with Tamiya Paints for the Black and Purple...the Humbrol Gold does not seem to work to good in coverage though is passable. I have painted the bases with my usual Matise Acrylic 'Green Grey' / 'Antique Green'...I repainted the bases this color because it is the same color I will paint the Old Glory ITALIAN troop bases when I do them later.
Pleased at this stage - there is a good week ahead of me repainting the High Elves to sort of look like Martians.
