Bag the Hun North Africa [10]

I added the Mid Stone camouflage to the Blenheims this evening, although things didn't quite go according to plan. I started off my mixing up a slightly different combination of shades than the ones I used on the Hurricanes, partly by accident and partly because it just didn't look right. I then fiddled around with the end result to try to bring it into line, which worked up to a point but still left them looking a little too pale.

The biggest problem was the ambient temperature which meant that my paint rapidly dried out and ended up being a little too thick in places, including all over the Martin Maryland which has gone to the big melting pot in the sky as a result. I guess it was doomed from the start and I couldn't be bothered to rescue it, so will have to get a replacement at some point in the future.

  1. Well I think the Middle Stone and Dark Earth look just about right! Not pale, for sure. I'd leave them as they are, and justify the difference as more weathering from the sun and elements to your gaming friend :)
