Apologies for my English.

First of all, amazing minis. I was not expecting this level of detail. Awesome work.

I read a lot of posts on forum then I tried a few different ways to paint. I was not only looking for painting method but a fast-painting way. I am the only one in my gaming community interested in napoleonics, so I need two armies to make demostrations for potential players.

After black undercoat, I simply overbrushed grey, then white. After making mostly drybrushing for faces, backpacks, vs. At the end I used some paints mixed with varnish for blue and red parts. I still don't know what to do with bases. Probably like those on pictures, I will make them darker then usual for minis to stand more.

Thanks for all suggestions and comments. Smiley

If I were creating Pendraken I wouldn't mess about with Romans and  Mongols  I would have started with Centurions , eight o'clock, Day One!

Very nicely done  Cool

I would give the bases a light drybrush, just to 'lift' the tone a bit & brighten the overall effect of the unit - it won't detract from the figures  Smiley

Great effect for a fast paint job, have to agree with Nik, a quick dry brush would make them stand out even better,

Great to see more Pendraken Napoleonics on the Forum! Looking forward to seeing the Austrians - straight from their wars with the Turks!  Smiley

If you want to soften the drybushing you can follow with a wash to blend and "pull" everything together.  Otherwise, good job  Thumbs up
