I find it hard to take decent pictures at my wee workspace, so please bear with me :-)
Below are the first thirteen figures with all their foundation colours blocked in.
These are the colours I have used:
- Reaper HD Sunburn Flesh for skin areas
- Vallejo Brown Violet for helmets
- Vallejo Black Grey for boots and bayonet scabbard
- Vallejo English Uniform for battledress & caps
- Vallejo Green Ochre for helmet chin straps and extra bags (not service respirator bag)
- P3 Thrall Flesh - regular webbing
- Vallejo Yellow Green - Service Respirator bags
- Vallejo Mahogany Brown for Rifles/Gun stocks
- Vallejo German Grey - gaiters & metal work on guns
- Reaper Ruddy Leather- rifle slings
- Vallejo Olive Grey- scarves on a couple of the figures
- Vallejo German Cam. Black Brown for hair
- Reaper Peacock Green for Molotov Cocktail bottle
That's quite a lot of different colours for what looks like a fairly straightforward uniform I guess :-)
Below is a picture of the wet palette that I use for my main painting tasks. Hmmm, think that paper might need changing soon :-). I find a wet palette essential for my work, especially in the hot corner of the living room where my workspace is - our summer weather dries the paint out fast.
My next post will be about the wash stage. I will be using four different wash colours for this.
