    This is my next project, while others arrive.
    I have started the base work and will leave the obelisk a while till I have painted the boots.

    Everytime I see someone start this little beauty, I tell myself to drag mine out of the closet and paint him. Well this time I am going to do it!! I will be following and interested in your pallet for the green. I always have a tendency to make it a little too dark.

    Thank you for your faith in me, I will try but I generally mix the green till I am happy with the colour. I will give the colours I use though. Glad your along for the ride.

    I am getting there with this one but dropped him and only found the damage once I started painting the uniform jacket. (The trouble with metal figures)
    I will show it on the next update, hopefully its campaign damage to the officers kit.
    The uniform colour for the jacket is base coat, scale 75 Black forest green with some black added.
    Highs are black forest green, sherwood green and tiny amount of yellow.
    Shadow is more black added to the base colour. Hope this helps.
    The reds are from Andrea's red set, I will have to get some more as I am running out of all the colours.
