This is a photo of the Spartan commander post-dipping, as requested by DeanM. I wasn't going to post anymore photos of him until he was matte varnished and based properly but I guess it's interesting to see what he looks like in a step-by-step process. I'm amazed at just how white the white is! Even after dipping/brushing it on!
I really like the affect the AP has had on the hair. I was a little worried about dry-brushing and the AP as that's how my wolf-skinned Romans are painted (yet to be dipped) but it's reassuring to know that the AP really brings it all out!
All three figures on the command stand will look great in the middle of my Spartan army and I'm really excited to be cracking on with them over Easter. Just need to get a drill to drill out their spear hands!
