At long last I have painted the Shako's. The design was based on the artwork seen in Flintloque Regiment Lowland Dwarves part one produced by Jodi Mest. I have used dark brown as a base and then highlighted with Bronze, Old Gold and then Shinning Gold to build up the distinctive head wear decoration. In addition I have highlighted the gold areas with just a tiny drop of gold/silver mix used as an extreme highlight.
The various backpacks and stored equipment have been painted.
Not much left to do now.....
