Sunday Workbench 15 September
Well, that's the first set of the remaining Warlord figures finished. I followed the same scheme apart from the trousers where I tried a couple of different colours for the highlighting.
Left to right:
1) English Uniform, Soft Tone wash, dry-brush Green Brown (70.879)
2) English Uniform, Soft Tone wash, dry-brush US Field Drab (70.873)
3) English Uniform + Leather Brown (70.871), Soft Tone wash, dry-brush English Uniform
2 and 3 look best in my opinion; I'll probably go with 2 as it doesn't require any mixing. 1 looks too green, but would be worth remembering if I ever do a Canadian platoon.
I have also been thinking about giving the figures a light pre-shade coat with the airbrush before painting - black primer is a real pain to go over with somewhat transparent paints. The greens have been OK, it's the flesh, Denison base colours and the English Uniform for the trousers that have needed a second coat.
I've made a small start on the rest of the Warlord figures. I should be able to finish them off tomorrow, then both batches can be varnished on Tuesday morning.
