More Archers of Esgaroth
These new guys have been created by two new sets of plastic kits. Conqueror games medieval archers and an archer sprue from Fire forge.
The Conqueror set was a little tricky with the forearms being stuck into a sleeve affair, but the results were good enough. The Fire forge set was good with some nice new long bow arms to add to the mix.

Heavy Warg Riders

Best I’ve tried!!!
Anyway, I put a few drops of this new Ultra matt varnish into a dish and it was really watery. I read on the bottle it is designed for an airbrush. I used my nice soft brush to soak some up and apply to the minis being careful not to swamp them. Any pooling was soaked back up and brushed away.
The results are amazing and lead to me going over my entire Lake town army. They have always had a good sheen to them that was just on the annoying side of okay. Anyway, this new stuff just took it all away. Next up my Wolf riders got a lick and came off looking much better. I didn’t put any on the metal work or weapons which leaves that looking slightly different. A sheen on metal work always looks good in my eyes.
The wooden shields also look better being more drab.
I guess the word ‘Ultra’ in the title should of been a give away.
