No more beer money left – time to get cracking on the painting. Yesterday was a good day – two colours were added to the figures.
The first colour to go on was the hair. Yes, I gave the Tommies hair. There is enough of an area under the helmet and above the neck that if it is left flesh, well, they’ll look like a little unit of Sinead O’Connors!
I also touched up the helmets on the painted figures as well as I want them to look like a part of the same unit. The helmet colour will soften a little as well when I apply some brown wash.
Next up – uniforms and webbing.
