Saturday Workbench 12 May
Just a quick post today. I decided last night to make a start on the next group for my WW2 Aussies. This is an Independent Company section.
I'm trying a couple of extra greens for the uniforms - Bronze Green, US Olive Drab and Reflective Green. So far they look OK, but they still need to be highlighted so it's a case of wait and see.
At the moment I've just done the basecoats (and the first metal stage on the Bren and rifles) and ggone over the non-flesh areas with diluted AP strong tone wash. The flesh was initially washed with flesh wash, then after painting the hair the flesh and hair both got a slightly diluted wash of flesh/Sepia (2:1 mix).
I won't get any further with them this weekend - I'm heading up to Campaign in Milton Keynes tomorrow, so hopefully I'll have a show report for you in the evening.
