    Started the US Para from Mitches.

    As ever, trying for the tired look of combat.

    Used Iraqi sand as the base colour then the usual preshade colours then oils over the acrylics.
    I tried blue eyes to start with but they looked terrible so used browns for the first time.
    Also added purple to the white for highlights for first time and used purple for the inner eye sockets.

    Still needs more eyebrow work.

    Great start, Grant. I love the colours you're getting in the skin tones.
    Again, you've nailed the tired, combat weary look too. Nice work mate

    Nice to see something else than blue eyes. They look very realistic!
    Nice job on the oils. Keep the changes in method, I'd say!

    This is beautifully painted. I would like to hear more details on how you applied the various colors to this figure.
