Painted in craft acrylics and Foundry Canvas (Shade) for the sand bags, I've mixed the paint to match the earlier pieces I painted.
The next stage is to paint over Army Painter Strong Tone, this gives another layer of shading and adds that all important protection. Then leave to cure and a final spray with the matt varnish. I'll be leaving them longer than the recommended period as I've previously had a narrowly averted disaster with the Army Painter dip not being completely dry and reacting with the varnish to look crinkled. Fortunately it was on a block house for FIW, so actually looks okay as it was most pronounced on the logs (doubt I could repeat it though!)
There will be a return to Achaemenid Persians next update as I've been very busy since my last post and the army is coming together nicely.
