  1. The Plague Bearers are looking really good. Do you mind discussing in more detail how you painted them? I currently have a load of Plague Bearers I’ve never got round to painting and your example makes me want to dust them off and break out the brushes.

    1. I add some short instructions of colors that I used :) I’m planning to do step by step with photos. Maybye on next week.

  2. Koniecznie uczyń to bo bombowi są :D urzekli mnie, a szykuje mi się taka 40 to chętnie bym co nieco podpatrzył :D
