Sounds great, congrats! :icon_biggrin: :::cheers:::

I was going to prime yesterday, but after a game in the morning, I got caught up in getting more clamps, and testing out Gorilla adhesive for my first use with my foam pieces for a step pyramid.

Took some time tonight to do chainmail and other metal parts of the dreadspears. Never underestimate the results of even a short and casual painting session, even 30min gets results. Might get these done by sunday, not rushing but keeping up the pace :)

Also got 8 plastic archers and 6-7 militia in the mail from a friend, might start a Mordheim warband later on, or for Cities of Sigmar in Warcry  :::cheers:::

Giving the handles some definition is a good idea, and contemplating what might look good.  I've seen folks use various colors, saw one using blue, but that just seemed out of place, even though it contrasted decently.  Sometimes basic leather browns are good enough.

Mentioned before that your choice of using an actual flesh color to their skin was better the the light grayish white/even greenish white seen in so many other Iron Golems.  I think some folks are so busy trying to look like the GW paint version of these that they're forgetting basic ideas on contrast (even when they are using the "contrast" paints), instead of using their own style and making these figures look good.  I also think you darker red than so many of those folks trying to look fancy is working as well.

Perhaps since you used that warmer, if I recall Zandri Dust, as a primer, perhaps a mid tone brown would work nicely on the handles, although a darker than mid tone brown might also work to contrast with the flesh .  The idea being to get them to look like leather. Then use a mid tone brown wash that will darken the deeper lines, yet give the brown a deeper look as well.

Anyway, go with your gut. Worse that will happen is that we'll learn something. :::cheers:::

Definitely thought about the handles. I liked the blue handle but they certainly didnít turn out like I was thinking. I may go back and lighten the blue again. But then again, they may stay like this for good. The leather would have been the proper way to go and more realistic.
