As something of a post-script to part 2 of the step by step guides here is a photographic walk through of the wash technique with two more lovely Pro Gloria Miniatures / Warlord Games Landsknechts.
1. Shade Colours
2. Shade Colour re-application after wash
4. Final Highlights - painting complete
The halberds were quite a tight fit with these two figures so I decided to fix them at stage 2 so as not to risk any scraping at the end (when I'd normally attach them).
Because of this I applied the flesh wash to the figures' faces after stage 1 then fully painted the faces to completion as it may have been a bit fiddly with a halberd in the way.
Incidentally, I do occasionally paint flesh to completion at this stage as I find it gives the figure an early focus.
