I have several different types of units lying around that I had planned to use for Warhammer Ancient Battles but since GW has decided to pull the plug on their ancillary systems, I thought I’d give Lion Rampant a go.
The previous post showed my Berserker unit but squirreled away in another part of my lead pile was a box of Nordvolk villagers by West Wind Productions. Although this set of figures was designed to be used in fantasy gaming, they fit in well with this genre. I will also be using them as Wild Men of Dunlending in LotR games.
In Lion Rampant the Bidowers are fielded in units of six so I had enough Nordvolk for three units! Each unit was tied together using a color for the cloaks and tunics.
One of the things I discovered is that the darker colors need to be highlighted even when using the Army Painter system. Cloaks and tunics in particular look better if highlighted up to white or a linen white when covered with the Quickshade.
The hair on these miniatures is highlghted up to white from the selected color (red, brown, grey) as if I was painting a helmet. The Quickshade then brings out the folds and makes a better blend.
