Something to think about. I planned these minis the same way I have the rest of this army. There are really only a few colors used, and they all work well when washed with GW Devlin Mud. This way I can crank out the models in a fairly quick time frame. They have a decent table top quality paint job, and once I am finished I can go back in and do some extra work on special things like the standards and unit champions. My total working time on these six models is roughly 4 hours (2 hours a night for two nights)

Since I am not really doing any highlighting for most of this model, getting an even coat is really important. I think it took four coats to get it consistent. Remember, several thin coats are always better than on thick one. It may take a bit more time, but it is worth it. For these I simply applied a coat to one model and them moved to the next one. By the time I got to the end model, the first one was pretty much dry and I could start over. It actually went fairly quickly.

You could easily take a few more steps to make these look even better, but I am not going to at this point. I am simply moving through my army trying to get everything painted. If I decide later they need it I can come back and add some detail touches at a later time.
Oh and one more thing. Once the final wash/paint is dry, don't forget to seal in your hard work.
