Hi guys, A couple of nights ago, I started my latest project, a 54mm French Poliu (infantryman) at Chemins de Dames 1917 by Jon Smith Modellbau. I have to say the casting and crispness of the detail is amazing for a resin figure. The only addition I've made is to stick a cigarette in his mouth, otherwise he's OOB. I pestered Dan Morton for some reference pics on the Horizon Blue colour for the uniform (which he duly supllied - thanks mate) and then I got cracking. Vallejo acrylic colours used for my version of Horizon Blue are Andrea Blue+ Oxford Blue with a touch of Basic Flesh. I want to show different variations of the blue on different parts of the uniform, so that no two blues are the same. I'm still in the process of base coating. Once that's done I'll do some mid highlights and shadows, and later I'll move on to the deep shadows and upper highlights. The face will be given a light wash of dilute oils to help add some depth of colour to the flesh tones. Comments/criticisms welcome.
