    Here's where I'm at with this figure I got from Gordon at Mitches Military Models.

    The parts are just blue tacked on to give a rough idea of his shape.

    The mtp camo has been shaded and I have used dark green and dark brown around the pockets and seams. I will pinwash oil paint towards the end of the painting to really give these areas some depth.
    Doing the MTP really does rquire lots of work and is very time consuming but he's coming together slow but sure.

    The weapons' desert coloured parts still need weathered and there is still lots of detail work to be done.
    The weapon once assembled os an amazing piece of work and looks quite imposing on the figure.

    The gloves will be the old desert dpm as will the radio pouch. The scrim on the helmet will be desert yellow.

    See what you think.

    Super Grant just super. Your work on the MTP is the best I have seen, pehaps a post just on your colouring methods?
    Looks like it will be a great paintjob and your painting fits nicely with the quality of the sculpt by Moz

    This looks really, really good! I love the technique, and now i'm trying to figure out how to translate it down to 1/35....

    Thanks Alex,
    I'd use the same base colour, the dark green, just use the light shade of brown as you wont see the gradients in 1/35th. Leave some patches where it's predominantly green and some predominantly brown. Then just figure out where to put the very light and dark splashes to unify the overall tone. If I had a 1/35th figure I would try it myself..I'll have a look to see if I can pick one up.
    Gells.

    My references aren't too up to date on the MTP uniforms, are they still wearing the Osprey? I have the Black Dog WMIK crew, I was doing to do the older desert pattern on them, but I'm keen to give this a whirl..I just don't know if their kit is appropriate
