We're going to be painting British Army infantry from the Cold War, particularly the 1970's or 80's, at the time of The Troubles was in it's prime.
|Here's the figure for the tutorial. It's from Mongrel Miniatures, and it's the British Marines set which I showed you yesterday. Well anyway, put the black basecoat on, let it dry and then begin painting.|
|First paint your webbing. Paint it Humbrol 117, which is a dark green.|
|Now for the uniform base. It's Humbrol 71.|
|For the SLR L1A1 I used Humbrol 70 as well.|
|Okay, now for the green splotches. Use Humbrol 86 for that. Do the same letter before, except fill in the spaces that you left. Just leave some base showing.|
|For the squigly black lines, those don't really have to be a letter. Any shape does fine.|
|For the flesh I used Humbrol 61.|
|I can't remember what paint this is, all it really is is just some red paint I got at AC Moore. However, you don't have to paint it Red for the Paras, you can paint it an colour you want.|
|After I washed it, painted the eyes and everything, it came out okay. I think the DPM came out more when I washed it.|
Well that's all, folks! If you have any questions at all just leave a comment and I'll answer them.
