Here are the first two stands of my Bedouin lancers for my Syrian army. I decided to do something a bit different to the rest of the army and give them a uniform look- I used an old GW Deadly Nightshade (in the old tall bottles- it's at least 15 years old and still covers well and, unlike the newer paints tend to do, hasn't dried up!!). I highlighted with a colour called periscope from the Vallejo Panzer Aces range.
I was going to do dark green (Vallejo Deep green) or crimson (GW Crimson Gore) turbans but couldn't decide which I preferred and the kids were no help as one preferred green the other red, so I decided I liked both and so would give each figure a different, suitably dark, turban as a contrast. The dark blue robes still give a uniform look but I'm quite pleased with the end result.
Two more stands, and a camp, to finish tomorrow night and I'll have 500 pts ready to take on Kent's Crusaders on Wednesday night in our final game before we head to NATCON on Friday- which should leave Thursday night to tidy up some terrain and make some disordered markers out of the Perry wounded figures.
