DBA 15mm Thracians current status

My short term project at the moment is 15mm DBA Thracian army. Its a nice army which consists of: 1x3 Cav (Gen), 6x3 Aux, 2x2 Ps, 3x2 Lh or 3 Ax. With this army you need a lot of terrain i guess therewith the Auxilia can resist against hard hitters (Bd, Elli etc.). Six Aux are enough so i will take the 3 Lh as a Getai ally. The Lh will give my the opportunity to charge everywhere on table/ where i can find enemies weakest point or allure enemies cavalry into terrain/away. Miniatures will come from Xyston who have the best Thracian models in my opinion. I will use them on the DBA 15mm tournament in Ulm at march the 26th so i have to hurry a little bit.

The current status of the project:

1x3 Aux, 1x2 Ps painted, part painted are 1x2 Lh, 1x3 Aux and 1x2 Lh who cannot be seen on the photo. The first picture shows an overview.

The second shows an auxilia closeup

Spears will be added when all elements are done.

Hope you like it. Comments, Hints and critics are welcome :)

Thanks for comment. Glad that you like it.

I use three colours all from Games Workshop.
1.ground colour TANNED FLESH a mix of tanned and DWARF FLESH
3.dwarf flesh a mix of dwarf flesh and ELF FLESH
5.elf flesh
6.if you want to: highlight elf flesh with skull white

BUT the most important is the consistency of your colour. The coulour may not be too thick and not too diluted/washy on your brush!!! With the right consistency you are able to conserve some of the steps above sometimes.
I hope this will help you.
