First I cleaned and filed off any flash and then painted the entire figure with Khaki. As you can see I mount the figures for easier handling.
Khaki over the entire figure. Then the webbing, Skin, Boots and wood on rifles, shovel (I used the same colour for them both), then Brown Violet and Panzer Grey for metal parts on rifles, tommy guns and a pistol.
Ink wash over base colours is next. I mixed Brown shade with some black shade. Just to make a darker brown really and painted it over the entire miniature.
Next was painting towards a highlight.
I wanted my figures to pop a little more so I go over them with the base colours again but this time painting less area. Just looking for more raised surfaces really. I added Khaki to the Brown Violet to highlight the Helmets and Zooks and also used German Camo Beige to add small highlights to the Khaki Jackets.
