CAESAR BRITISH SAS 1/72 WIP PART II.
Sorry for not getting back to all those who have left comments or posts, I have been feeling rough as a badgers arse this week.I have not picked up a brush at all this week or hardly been near a PC.
Anyway enough self pity and back to the boy's in black!
For a change I have done some more work on a project that I said I would(see I am not a complete lying git).
I still fell like a fraud because painting black on black is a bit boring ,but a bit of a challenge I suppose.
Like the first bloke I started with a Vallejo black grey and gave it a bloody good wash of Vallejo black.I did this after a few comments on Benno's figure forum, and to be honest I think they were right.
I took there advice on the eye pieces on the S10 respirator's and painted them flesh coloured.I gave them a wash with Vallejo flesh colour and I think it saved them!
Thinking about it when I was in the old noddy suits (NBC protection suits) were green, and I was toying with the idea of going with that, but I don't suppose it is out of the question that they had there own kit.
I also painted the torches with a red lenses just to get a different colour in.I did toy with the idea of doing the magazines with a tape round them.
Here is a team shot so far.I gave the first a good wash as well just keep them all looking the same.
You can tell I am learning a few new tricks with this blogging Tom foolery, that or I have started listening to the better half.
PLEASE CLICK ON IMAGES FOR LARGER VIEW AND ANY TIPS OR COMMENTS ALWAYS WELCOME.
Cheers for looking Rich.
