Wargames Atlantic 28mm archers.
A while ago I promised that I would build a unit of Wargames Atlantic Persian archers, rather than just a demo vignette. I decided to make twelve Mardian archers with Median caps.

Here are the particulars:

Nice. Did you you do a wash? If you did, what did you do?

They look wonderful.

"Nice. Did you you do a wash? If you did, what did you do?"

I started with black primed then did a white dry brush highlight. Then when I use thinned paint or tones and tints much of the dark and light stays there based on the texture. Often putting a tone or tint over a lighter base makes the whole color go darker. Then the original color paint can be used for high lights.
So for example on the tan colored tunic, it was painted tan paint out of the tin, then tinted with a light or strong tone brown depending on how dark I wanted it. Then later after drying I paint the original tan color on the ridges. And maybe add some light mix onto top if needed.
