I want to show how easily you can paint your Gangs of Rome miniatures to a tabletop standard and, in doing so, spend less time painting and more time playing.
The sheer amount of rules and resources available for collecting and gaming in the Sengoku Jidai have increased dramatically. Hence I set out to promote the era at our club in order to convince my friends to play and paint it.
I’ve been collecting my Sengoku Jidai army for most of them. They have, however, rarely been used in actual games, mainly due to the lack of other players with similar armies.
When I started painting Footsore Miniatures’ Irish Warlord shown, I thought about the base and wanted something wild and green. After some trial and error, settled on the following method.
After receiving some enquiries about how I painted the armour, I thought the following might help.
I like to base coat the whole miniature and give it a wash of sepia. You don’t have to do this but this is how I like to work. The benefit is that I can work out what colours go where and see if they work well together.
Base coat the horse with Flat Earth. Paint the harness German C Black Brown. Once dry, wash the whole miniature with Sepia ink.
