    I start all miniatures with an airbrushed primer coat of Jo Sonja's Carbon black. Face was then given a top down directional spray with a medium flesh tone. I pre-mix all the flesh transitions beforehand and keep then fresh on a wet palette, about nine shades in total. In this case I went for a generally pale tone using white, burgundy, yellow ochre, paynes grey and black (all Jo Sonja's) with a touch of purple and alazarin crimson added for further tonal changes. This mix was replicated in oils and added as a final layer in thin coats. The Howitzer is Alclad brass sprayed over a gloss black base and shaded/weathered with burnt umber and black oils with the addition of Winsor Emerald oils for the corrosion.
    Hope this answers your question.

    Alex.

    seemed to have missed this one Alex, very nice and very clean brushwork, and you got the colour on the cannon wheel bang to rights
