Unlike horses, I put together the camels and their riders including the lances before priming. After priming, the base is created with the crackle effect varnish. Don't use crackle effect varnish before priming, it won't last long. Let the crackle varnish dry for a few hours. Then the miniature is finished completely. The shield is painted separately and attached to the figure at the very end.
I'm really impressed by the quality of the miniatures (Black Tree Design). The order is processed through the UK, order confirmation and communication is done via the United States. The delivery from the UK to Germany took about 14 working days. The camels have the correct scale and appear much more powerful than horses. The riders look as if they had emerged directly from "Kingdom of Heaven". It's a real pleasure to work with.
