BKC Aegean Campaign [7]


I have finally made a start on the Italian infantry for the BKC campaign, with a simple wetbrush of Foundry Granite Shade followed by a drybrush highlight of Foundry Granite. They look a little too light in the photo but actually match quite well with the colour plates in the Osprey book.

Honest.

The next stage will be to give the faces, arms and rifles a basecoat of Foundry Tan or Chestnut Shade, followed by a highlight of some sort. My aim to to get a whole battalion painted up in no more than one hour, although it'll be spread out over a few dis-contiguous evenings.

I reckon this is feasible and will definately avoid any mucking about on my part with un-necessary fiddly farty bits.
