Spear Colours

I have always painted my spears plain brown (based largely on the handle of my garden rake!) but a post today on The Minatures Page got me thinking about it and I found this photograph in Kim Siddorn's book Viking Weapons and Warfare. A fair old collection of shades and I think I might mix them up a bit and go rather yellower as a result.

First Completed Figure

Here is the first Gripping Beast infantryman. Not bad to paint although the lamellar armour was a little indistinct and I am not happy with it on this one which was done under artificial light. Hopefully the next one will be a bit better. The Little Big Man studios shield transfer is wonderful, of course.
