After participation at the CANCON event, followed by a couple of weeks holidaying up the coast here in Australia, I decided to paint up these figures to get back into the swing of painting again,
I hope to do a bit more figure painting this year as opposed to building Terrain, in order to reduce my lead mountain, "anyway that is the plan".
|For a bit of added detail, I modeled gun straps from Milliput for each of the 8 riflemen I purchased.|
|Papuan Infantry moving cautiously thru the jungle.|
|The colour scheme:|
Vallejo model colour Burnt Umber.
A wash of Nulin oil was added.
I highlighted by progressively adding VMC Iquari sand to Burnt Umber.
Base coat is Vallejo Model colour Khaki.
washed with Agrax Earthshade.
Highlighted by progressively adding VMC Iquai sand to the Khaki.
|The tunic is VMC White grey with a thin wash of Nulin oil and a bit of highlight added with VMC Middlestone and Flat earth.|
|The rifles was painted using VMC Maghogany and highlighted by progressively adding VMC Iquai sand.|
|Here the Metal figures,mounted on magnetic bases.|
