 Great work. Inspiring stuff particularly those bases!

 Thank you! The goal is that every hero/squad has their own base style. It really helps when looking at them from a distance.

Excellent stuff sir! 

Can I ask, what is your recipe for your allied troops longcoats (page 1)?  I'd like to replicate it.

Thanks =)

The first allies there are painted in "Khaki" from the Vallejo Game Color line. I want to say the green is "Cayman Green" also from the Vallejo Game Color line. That green matches the primer on the allies very well. You could even use the primer if you wanted to be extra careful painting the other bits.

The model is washed with Devlan Mud and then highlighted back up with Khaki again.

After that, I mix a bit of Vallejo Bone White with the Khaki for the top highlights.

I used various browns for the other troops armor/shoulder pieces but the techniques are all the same.

Thanks for looking!

Also, page 15 of my BGG gallery has the beginnings of those troops and way more in-progress shots. It might give you some help w/ seeing the steps. I try to document as much as I can while I'm painting.

check it out.

 

 

Thanks again for looking and for the reply!

Could you give any advice on finding the bits you've added to the bases? (ie. girders, barbed wire, etc.) I've started colour coding the bases for each faction (javascript:void(0);/*1334698403707*/) but I also want to differentiate between the units and I think your technique is genius.

 Thanks, Zuggzugg. Seems that Tamiya are the company of choice for 1/48 scale.

Started base work on Angela. I went for brick wall rubble. Drilled a few bullet holes in as well.

 

Some tank trap I-Beams for The Priest.

 

Kept it simple for The Chef

 

More pics coming tonight. I didn't take any pics of where I left off last night so I'll do that before I continue. The bases are already painted.

I also started on Manfred. Gave him Brown/Orange peadot and a bit of barbed wire on his base. I'll post him up tonight too!

 

Keep the feedback coming! :)

Thanks for looking!

Here are the pics from last night.

 

Calling Stefan done.

 

Sigrid still needs eyes (ugh) and a few small highlights

 

Angela needs a face and washes/highlights

 

The Chef is almost ready for his washes.

 

Same for The Priest

 

Here's Manfred. First try at some peadot. Came out ok I think. I'll have to take more pics. These aren't so good. He's just about ready to be sealed before washing/highlighting.

 

 

 

Thanks for looking! Leave feedback! :)

 More work on Action Jackson and his buddies. I figured I'd do them at the same time since I want them to have the same armor.

:)
