16 figure pilum armed unit from above1316 viewsI have sprayed the figures with black matt car spray after glueing the spears and arms to them. I then added the first coat of white(I touch it up later). Then the dark bronze on the metal work followed by dark flesh on the arms, face and legs. I leave the toes until they are based as I find it quicker.
