So I did some more preparation work today:
A Panzergrenadier platoon and the Command section Motorbike ready for undercoating
Many War of the Roses archers ready for spraying
Bombard and crew also prepped for undercoats!
I also sprayed the command section and made a start on my test figure:
So here he is in his undercoated glory
And after I painted some block base colours. That’s Vallejo German Grey (995) for the trousers, Vallejo Reflective Green (890) for the jacket, Citadel Calthan Brown on the gun and pack and Citadel Tallern Flesh for the skin areas.
I then washed him in Devlan Mud (which I accidentally ingested, it tastes as awful as it smells kids!) [pic to follow] and I’m going to touch up some details with metal and some other brown shades. Right now I feel the whole piece is rather dark, but that could be improved with a brighter base, and some better light in my living room.
Overall I’m not massively impressed with my first 15mm effort, but I guess things will get better as I do a few more pieces, and I get a lamp because the light in my living room is godawful for painting.
That’s all for today, will post an update when I’ve done some more work…
