Easterlings WiP 1

Finished painting the Red Gore onto the easterlings (before I realized that I usually use Mechrite Red, not that it appears to make a big difference) now onto the Shining Gold for the armor. Something I've thought about, was that the armor on the easterlings seems slightly impractical in ways. For instance, the armor appears to be a kind of stylized 'splint armor' which is all well and good. However the armor on the torso only appears to cover the abdomen, and leaves the chest unprotected. Not a big deal for a soldier that is equipped with a shield, but why not cover the entire torso, especially for the archers? I don't know, just something I was thinking of.
Either way, they still look cool and sufficiently imposing.
