The figures are now finally finished and very smart they look too. To finish them off I started with an oil pin wash to add some depth to the uniforms then painted the details using vallejo colours. A very light dry brush was next using vallejo Iraqi sand, this helped to slightly fade the uniforms and add some very subtle highlights. Once the matt varnish was applied the uniforms looked more muted in tone. A final dash of pigments and they are now ready for the dio.
The base was finished off using my usual methods of sand and grit then static grass plus the addition of some grass tufts and a few weeds carved from stretched plastic rod. Painted using tamiya colours plus oils then a final dusting of pigments.
Now it's time to add all the elements to the base and I'm done!
