I have completed the basic crusader warband set. you can find it here
For my orc warband i have completed 14 orcs out of 20 orcs, then i need to do 20 goblins, 5 squigs and a troll. You can find some pictures of some of y finished orks here
After this I will proceed to do houses, create actual gold crowns and make a more fluff version of the shop, rosters and the like. Rules review will also be made for simplicity sake. All to bring the step down for beginner mordheimplayers and easy out-of-the-box playability and portability
I use devlan mud wash pure. but i tend to brush it off with a dry brush if i think some areas are too thick shaded (whilst it is still wet)
It indeed doesn't do very much, it's not like an overnight transformation, however it does make it better somehow.. i can't explain it!
