Crossbowman number 9: Dimbo

Dimbo is the last guy of the trio I've painted for the Brush Slave League painting contest.

The tricky part of this model is the sallet: after many layers of greys, black, white, dark blue and dark red, I've finally found the places where to put the lights and shadows to get a convincing result (OK, more or less convincing). One week later, I was discovering an illustration which would have simplified my work a lot. It was published in the 3rd edition Warhammer Army Lists and it is signed by Dave Gallagher. As you can see, it clearly shows the back of my crossbowman... and his sallet!

I'll keep this picture in mind for my next NMM attempts...
