    They look good but I think the red is too clean maybe dirty it up a bit, other than that cool scheme.

    Nice scheme. But I agree with @Crowsfoot ... the red looks a bit too clean... or the shields in general...

    50+ undead, 3 chariots, 1 warsphinx. 4.5-5 hours into thier soak.

    Issue 1: Alot had varnish so I'm expecting a re-soak.

    Issue 2: we had some feet clippage particularly on the ancient thin skeletons from what I think is 2nd edition. I'll betackling this with basing or brown polymer putty (brownstuff?)

    Just glue them on the base then pva around the feet add sand it will look like they are rising from the grave.

    What is your paint stripping process? I picked up a couple armies second hand that were painted and would love to repaint them.

    Or ushabti hordes

    Or catapult battery (5)

    Soak them. Metal models 8 hours, plastics 24 hours, then scrub with a manual toothbrush and warm water

    Got as far as this, from primer, on the next 5 tomb guard. This after finishing building commission items which I will switch back to tomorrow.
