Teutoburg Forest AD9

Germanic Warrior

Cloak, tunic, trousers and shield.

Following on from the pre-highlighting of the clothing and cloak first off the cloak has had many layers added using a kind of pointilism/crosshatch technique to create a texture for the heavy woolen cloak material.

Some brown filters have been added for weathering. I always thin the paint with Vallejo Matt Medium when weathering to make it less opaque so as not to overdo it.

Here blending has begun on the tunic using midtones.

Here we have the tunic at it's conclusion along with the trousers and equipment, all in a productive 2 hour session.

Shield was next. Done using a combination of designs from my reference material with a mind to make it harmonious with the other colours present in the vignette.

Still a few bits to be done but almost there. Onto the Roman's shield next!
