Of course, I need to convince my buddy Brian to paint up his Confederate gnomes in an Aztexican or Mormon Theocracy of Deseret scheme. Or I'll just add them to my want list.
While California is not its own entity in the current Gnome Wars setting, it's easy to see how the "Northern" gnomes can be used to represent other nations, both real, and wholly imagined.
To create the California Imperial Guard (All Hail Emperor Norton! May he rest in peace!), I used the following paints (all are Americana unless otherwise noted).
Uniform - Base: Evergreen Wash: Hauser Dark Green Drybrush: Celery
Highlights - Tuscan Red, Lamp Black, Gold, Lt Cinnamon, Sable, Raw Sienna
Skin: (Howard Hues all) Ruddy Flesh for the Whites, Suntan for the Aztexicans, and Native American for...err.. the lone Native American scout.
