    I do like the sculpt, pricey piece though. Great work so far as usual. I do like MC figs.

    Cheers, Ski.

    I'd like to know why you think its pricey, esp as its a limited run.

    Hi all :)

    Many thanks for all the replies :)


    Despite life's curve balls making a mockery of any kind of order in my world I have managed to get the camo overalls done.

    I tried freehanding the design and it was terrible so over sprayed it all and started again :)

    I made a simple paper template of the design and used the yellow blobs as a guide to map out the pattern...

    So colours used are ...

    Green base AV Field Grey WW2.
    Brown base AV Burnt Umber and AV Flat Earth 1:1
    Yellow base AV Green Ochre

    I used AV Smoke to do the shadows and then added AV Light Flesh at 1:1 with the base colours for highlights.

    At this stage I need to do work on the yellow blobs and just tighten everything up.

    :)

    Hi Mark,

    I love the work you've done of the camo so far. I particularly like the subdued tones and low contrast. It looks very realistic.

    Carl, Ken, Luiz, Adrian, Ken, Marc and Tony .... Thank you all :)

    I'm reliably informed that this piece will cease production at the end of the month as Stuart has other projects to sort out and the clock is now ticking for a Major event :) So get em while they're hot LOL!

    Got a bit of time in and did the tunic and collar tabs, which still needs a bit more work :(

    :)
