Painting - Base Coat
I decided as these models where not going to be part of any particular unit to keep things simple. The base coat is a standard mid-grey (Vallejo 72050 Cold Grey), and equipment is generic dark brown, or black leather.
I decided to change the trousers of two models to a mid-tan, and to add a little colour by painting the drums red.
Red is a tough colour to work with. On a white undercoat it can appear too thin, and on a black undercoat it can lose its colour. Rather than apply several layers, consider using a solid burgundy colour as a base, then paint the red on top of that.
Thanks for reading!
Any feedback is appreciated. Still working on taking good pictures.
Models to this quality - a good solid wargaming level, finished and varnished, are only £2.50 each.
