Painting Germanic Warbands

Painting Germanic Warbands

Here is my guide for Painting Germanic Warbands, during Caesar's Gallic War uniforms using Vallejo acrylic colors. I have also done a painting guide for Caesarian Roman Legions and Gallic & Celtic Warbands.

Vallejo Colours

Vallejo 998 Bronze, Helmet
Vallejo 997 Silver, Helmet
Vallejo 997 Silver, Chainmail, Sword and Spear
Vallejo 871 Leather Brown, Leather Belt
Vallejo 821 German Cam. Beige WWII, Javelin Shaft
Vallejo 846 Mahogany Brown, Spear Shaft
Vallejo 927 Dark Flesh, Skin

Painting irregular armies such as the Gallic & Celtic Warband, an assortment of clothing colours looks best. To do this job quickly I sort out the figures into groups prior to painting. And then paint the groups in order see below.

Group 1 gets green tops
Group 2 gets red tops
Group 3 gets blue tops
Group 4 gets brown tops
Group 5 gets grey tops

Next, choose another 5 colours and do exactly the for trousers
