Very nice work. Are you only paiting allies at the moment? I wouldnt mind seeing what you do with some Axis.

Your figures are looking really good, I look forward to seeing more, I am using GW Devlan Mud to wash my figures with but you are tempting me to buy some Quickshade!

Long time no see I had to take a small break from painting as I was starting to loose fun. And it worked - I am spending all my free time on painting again! Anyway, let`s get back to business - as I said before, today I`ll post some A3 Allied infantry with winter camo and first batch of heroes.
1. Grim Reapers - winter camo:
Errors made: this time I was applying decals before armor weathering with Boltgun Metal, Chaos Black and Vermin Brown… Navy anchors on right arms could be more visible IMHO.
2. Tank Busters - winter camo:
Errors made: WAY TOO MUCH weathering, especially on legs.
3. Hammers - winter camo:
Errors made: I`m pretty pleased with this squad, as I`ve decided not paint eyes, lips etc. Shading with Ogryn Flesh and QuickShade only should do the job. And they did.
4. Red Devils - winter camo:
Error made: Only one - 'black hole' mouth of the squad leader looks pretty weird…
5. Bazooka Joe
Errors made: None. Absolutelly my best work up to date.
Errors made: Shouldn`t have been trying to paint her eyes and lips with separate paints etc. Now she looks like a sad frog-clown-whatever.
7. OZZ 117
Errors made: little too much weathering.
Errors made: once again - painting eyes with these models is pointless. For a beginner level, simple shading is enough.
Work in progress: NCO Command squad and rest of Allied heroes are on the way, so stay alert!
As always, all comments are greatly appreciated.

Very nice work. The progression from the original posts up to now is evident.
Can't wait to see some walkers!
