First Praetorian Trooper for Veteran Squad Fully Painted
So here is the first of my original GW Praetorian Imperial Guard Troopers that I will be using in my veteran squads. He wasn't too hard to paint (not that I think it was that great a job!) but I think he looks ok. Thanks Col Winterborne for the epaulette advice, I went a bit more golden for the top drybrush coats. Any thoughts of anything that could possibly be changed with colours before I bang out a load more?
Also haven't done the base, have three bases drying that I'm going to test out some Desertish/African plain like base colour schemes on, as I think the one on my test guy was too white. I want a more dry grassland feel. Any suggestions? I never really thought about it but the base is incredibly important to get right as although the models will change, every base will/should be roughly the same so want to get it spot on.
