VBCW Red Workers Militia [11]

I had a crack at the Red Workers Militia again last night, painting the boots on all of the figures in GW Calthan Brown.

After that, for a bit of a change, I thought I'd start on the FT17 tank and Putilov field gun, so gave them a wetbrush of 50:50 GW Catachan Green and Camo Green, followed by a Camo Green drybrush and a drybrush of GW Dheneb Stone.

I need to give them a wash next, followed by another highlight drybrush, then paint the tracks, wheel rims, breech block and so on in a suitable range of blacks and greys. I'm going to keep them simple, so no funky retro camouflage, just a red star or two to add some colour.

There's a sale on at Westwind at the moment, so I quite fancy getting some more French Resistance and Russian Partisan figures to add to the Reds, especially to convert to gun or mortar crews. I'm not sure I can justify the cost at the moment though, even at 40% off?
