Wood Elf team painting complete

This weekend I finished up the paint job on my Hearts of Oak wood elf team. The minis are the Cabiri from Maki Games which I picked up last autumn on Indiegogo.

I’ve not painted anything for a few months, so I’m rusty but I’m happy with the cohesion of the team.

I airbrushed in the skin tones before using a regular brush to to the leather and details and it was pretty quick. I’m also trying to protect  them a little more since stuff always gets bashed on the Blood Bowl pitch (especially Wood Elves…). I therefore gave them all a coat of GW ‘Ard Coat with an old brush before my usual Army Painter matt spray.
