    Interesting. I've never tried oils on a figure but intend to some time - maybe with one of my Zulu models. I love using sepia and paynes grey for shading but have to discipline myself or I end up with something that looks like a pencil sketch! (Come to think of it, the colours you mention ring a bell - mars red, indigo - from an old article in 'Military Modelling' which I have somewhere. )
