I have started painting my Core Set miniatures and I will updating this topic as I finish new units.
I've started with the Death Dealers, as I have a very clear color scheme in my mind. In addition, I see them as the "allied tactical squad", so I wanted to have them ready first.
Here is a family picture:
I wanted them to look like real WW2 ranges (more or less) so I have used Vallejo Desert Yellow for the jackets, with a Leather Brown wash and then highlights in Desert Yellow and Desert Yellow + white. This can be better seen here:
Backpacks are painted in khaki, with a Vallejo Burnt Umber wash. Trousers are painted in Beast Brown with a Brown Ink wash, and boots and gloves are in Dark Flesh with a Devlan Mud wash, and then a Brown Ink wash.
Body armor is painted in the iconic Olive Drab, highlighted with Vallejo Russian Uniform, a wash of Black Ink and then another wash of Devlan Mud.
Bases and weapons are Boltgun Metal over a Black base, then washed with a 1:1 mix of Brown and Black inks. A little highlighting with Boltgun Metal, and then I added rubble and details on the bases painted in German Grey, and Neutral Grey, with some Orange added to resemble brick dust.
In some faces I did a little wash with German Grey to simulate unshaved beards and add some character.
Finally, I painted the bazooka in Olive Drab and did two washes. First: black, followed by some lights with Russian Uniform. Then, a Devlan Mud wash. I finished adding some chipping with German Grey.
Hope you like it!
