Winter warriors

These two are from a range called urban war, I don’t know anything about it, I picked them up from a friend at the club just because I liked the look of them.

I started off with a black base coat and then a dark gray zenithal shade sprayed from about a 50 degree angle favouring the left hand side of the model, followed a lighter gray tone and finally a white. The second layers of highlighting are done at shallower angles.

This gave a good directional shading making it look like that was the way the light is shining from.

I didn’t really paint these as such, I used ink washes for the colour letting the highlights show through. I only really painted a bit of brass on the helmets and some gun parts, plus a small highlight on the uniforms. A mix of red and yellow just to make the padding pop.

I added in some weathering powder, held in place by adding alcohol. (no I didn’t use drinkable stuff)

The base detail was made using Milli-put then gradients of Brown to hive better depth, finally satin coat varnish for the water.

Static grass (melting snow mix) and a few bits of leaf scatter are held in place by thinned down PVA.

I found the sand bags in my bits box they were painted the same way with a mix of sepia and yellow ink.

Thanks again for looking.
