15mm Sci Fi Infantry Basecoat




I've started the painting today with a basecoat dry brush of Foundry Moss in three stages, followed by an overall wash in GW Athonian Camoshade ink. It all looks a bit horrible in close up but not so bad when at arms length. I will block in the weapons and webbing next, by which time they should look a little less horrible and a bit more presentable. I'm aiming for a quick turnaround with these figures so that I can get on to the armour, so I don't mind a few short cuts if it means they get finished faster and to a workmanlike standard.

  1. Best of luck. 15mm beat my aged eyes. A large box of lovely GZG stuff in the loft.

  2. Hi Jim,

    These are looking good so far and the weapons and webbing will set off the base coat well.

    I have the same thought as you, a few short cuts means they get finished faster; base coat, wash and dry-brush to finish.

    Cheers, Ross

  4. Just trying to compensate for not being able to get to the club over the summer. Good news on the house!
