15mm Khmer – Test Base Complete

I have been testing a new (for me) painting technique of brown undercoat, block (ish) paint and wash. This is a method I am planning to use on my South-east Asian themed armies. At the moment they are Burmese and Khmer. I wanted a quick test to start with so an element that I could paint simply. I selected the Maiden Guard from the Khmer, for no other reason than the colours and that there is a lot of flesh.

These figures are 15mm tall so the detail that looks overdone in these photos is not so bad in real life, although I will need to redo the faces of the figures again. These are Irregular Miniatures and I am pleased with the way they look painted. Much nicer than their appearance in bare metal.

      Yeah … nice legs shame about the face 😆

      Will touch them up later. Still, at life-size (in the hand) rather than twice life-size (photo) they have passed muster with the lady.

    So basically you wanted an army with tits? I know its not PC to suggest it, but I know its the truth. 🙂

    And yes, they do look nice. And I do like all the extra bits to help make the bases “pop”.
