Having with fun with the dip

Yesterday I thought I would grab a bit of spare time and dip some more Celts. This is great fun for me as I get to see results really quickly. Dipping seems to be made for huge 'horde' armies and these thirty Celts were base coated in one evening. The picture above shows the unit completely painted with weapons etc. I came up with quick ways to show patterns on the tunics by dotting with a lighter colour. This technique should add interest and detail following dipping.

First evenings work shows thirty Celts massing for trouble. It's nice to see such results in one nights work and is a refreshing change after painting tricky uniforms.

This time I tried out the strong tone.
