Thanks all! Smiley
However, you really should quit while you're ahead. So there are no plans for anything beyond this mad week's assembly. It was a fun exercise, but Early Rome is definitely a special interest.

In order to avoid hard feelings, here's a parting shot of the full array in my usual setup.



Well, must have been a very dry Italian summer. Wink

Mate I love your skin tones and faces,  I feel that's where I struggle most of the time. If the mood ever takes you I would love a tutorial or even the colors you use and the paint recipes Smiley

Nevyen, quick answer 'cause it's very easy: I use Foundry's "Mediterranean Flesh" almost exclusively these days. It gives a nicely tanned skin tone, and the three colours are usable straight from the pot. Additional highlights are put on with Foundry's "Expert Flesh D" (or any light, "Elven" skin colour). I apply a reddish wash in-between, but mostly after the four flesh colours, just for blending them all together; "Reikland Fleshshade" by Games Workshop is a good option. Bring back some highlights, perhaps adding any bone/light sand colour, and it's done.
Hope that helps. A full, illustrated tutorial is too time-consuming at the moment, unfortunately.

First class work. It's a shame you won't be expanding them. Inspirational anyhow (I'm backlogged with painting/modding as it is but this ..along with the Gorgon Etruscan Chariot...is telling me to get in deeper).
