The first two stands took me quite a long time to paint. As those who have painted British uniforms know, it is a difficult colour to paint. The Vallejo Model Colour English Uniform is a bit difficult to apply. It is sometimes too thin and sometimes too thick and doesn't have great coverage. It is also a putrid brown colour. I wanted the brown English Infantry to look nice next to my American Paratroopers. The colours make it much more time consuming to paint them.
|Previous method, English Uniform, brown wash, some highlights. Looks okay but doesn't really pop.|
|All Vallejo Model Colour paints.|
This formula was not created by me! Two excellent tutorials on painting British infantry at Heresy Brush (in Spanish, can translate with google) and Crac des Chevaliers inspired me that British Infantry could look good and generously shared how they did it.
|It is hard to get all of the infantry focussed on the large base.|
|The base detail was built from greenstuff, balsa wood, and resin sand material.|
|Hard to see, but I did paint badges on the shoulders and eyes. Trying to take it to the next level. Some fierce local competition for best painted! Hahaha.|
|Practised a few different methods.|
Sorry for the mediocre pictures. I took them quickly as I am in the process of moving. I'll have some better ones of the complete platoon!
Check back soon. I actually have pictures and things sorted for another three blog entries. I have some Bedford trucks, a tutorial on basing, and a tutorial on painting Mickey Mouse camouflage all ready to go. Comments and suggestions appreciated as always. Thanks for visiting!
