    At the risk of drifting off topic... Tartan camo? How would that work?

    Camo pattern, let's just say old DPM, made up of indiviual shapes of different coloured Tartans?

    That's Keeerrazzeeey. :eek::LOL:

    Hi Nap,
    Cheers for the comments. The first stage took about an hour and a half, the stage below took about 2 and a half hours. Thank god he has a plain armoured vest. The Marpat takes forever and is tough on the old eyes.:inpain:

    I'll apply the last stage tomorrow and give the whole camo a wash to hopefully bring it all together.

    Hi gells,

    latest pics really show the extraordinary detail you've put into the camo. I'm still blown away by the expression in the eyes. They just look so real and really sell the idea of an exhausetd battle weary grunt. Well done.

    Gells, that is just awesome!

    Can you say which paints and colours you used for the camo?

    Cheer's,
    Jeff.

    Third stage Marpat. Choclate brown with deck tan.
    I started painting his helmet really fine pixels and whilst it looked ok under the otivisor it looked like sloppy painting to the naked eye. So I felt had to make the blocks a bit bigger so it went better with the rest of the cammo.
    I'll cut in some smaller pixels in the chocolate colour with the base colour which was deck tan to prevent them looking too blocky.
    This stage was about 3 hours work but I did spent a huge amount of time to begin with on the helmet.
    If anyone has a pair or eyes in their spares box I will gladly buy them.

    Thats some very nice work there Gells, skin tones are cracking and so is the cammo, also like the knifes leather sheath, very convincing mate.

    All the best

    That looks fantastic.

    Are you going to apply a Filter wash to "Blend" the contrast on the camo a little?

    Well done so far Gellso. Cracking camo pattern, a test of one's patience I guess...

    GREAT work!! That looks fantastic. A wash of the base colour will really fade it down nicely, as these uniforms lose alot of "shape" definition as they fade quickly.

    Which colours did you end up using for each stage? I've found myself eyeing my copy of this every day now.....
