WIP — Yes, Plastics 3

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!

Hair painted - of course, it is lucky this is not next to yesterday's picture as you wouldn't see it ... but I know it's painted :-)

The tin lids are painted. The colour is Russian Uniform and used for British helmets and tanks - and by default, equipment such as 2-pdrs, mortars and MMGs.

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.

    Interested to see what colours you use for uniform and webbing. It’s a vexed question as there wasn’t a single standard for webbing especially (everything from off-white to quite dark green).
