Back to the Brushes 347

In between work, complaining about the weather being very good - it's a Scottish thing - and being more active painting continues on the Crusader spear and crossbows with pictures to follow. 

As a slight diversion put some flesh colours and started on the uniform in this motley crew.

The figures were built when purchased from eBay and are from earlier Warlord Games British infantry. By earlier, its the models not the period of WW2.

The rifleman on the left as view has a different approach to the flesh. 

Block base tone, in this case Foundry Flesh A. Then thin coat of Foundry Flesh B, followed by another. Next is a very light colouring with Army Painter Flesh wash, followed by glazing with the Foundry mid tone. Still to apply subtle highlighting which will be a mix of Foundry Flesh B & C.

Is it worth it, will see once finished, but the thin coats of paints suits the warm weather. 

Anyhoo, there will be another couple of figures from WW2 appearing over the weekend along with the first finished figures for this month's 30 Days 30 Miniatures Painting Challenge. 

Cheers for now
