Hi everyone. After the Sea People, the Nubians and the Libyans, I wanted to start to paint a NKE army for DBA. The first painted figs are the archers – nice minis by Caesar.

I hope you like them :)

You certainly did them justice. Tremendous.

Your skin tones are superb! What colors are you using?

Thank you for your comments!

The skin tones are painted with GW colors:

- base: Bestial Brown (= today's Mournfang Brown I think)

- shades: Agrax Earthshade

- lights: 3 layers of bestial Brown with more and more Bronzed Flesh.

Hope it will help :)

Really nice – another thumbs up for your skin tone painting.

Yes, they look like ancient Egyptian Marines :)
