Hotchkiss HMG team - WW1 French

More characterful Scarab Miniatures 28mm WW1 French - gradually making my way through them :-)
This time it's a Hotchkiss HMG team - there will be more of these down the track.

I really enjoy painting the Horizon Blue, lots of fun to shade & highlight.

    1. I try and paint most days, apart from Sundays. Had to leave my old career due to health problems, so painting miniatures helps to keep me busy, helps with my health, and contributes a little bit of money to family coffers :-)

    1. Thanks Rodger, lots more French to be done over the next while.

  3. What were the colors used to paint the horizon blue?

    1. My "Horizon Bleu" uses the following paints:
      Base Colour is 50/50 Vallejo Field Blue & Reaper HD Winter Blue
      Apply Secret Weapon Blue Black Wash
      Back over with base colour
      Final highlight is base colour mix lightened with Derivan Minis Light Grey Blue

      I hope that helps. My starting point was Sidney Roundwood's Painting Guide which can be downloaded
      from his blog.
