Yesterday, apart from working on the remaining details on the miniatures, I have been nusy painting the Terminator sergeant’s tabard.

Here is a quick rundown of how I usually do light cloth like this:

 

I am using Vallejo Model Color. The colors used are as follows: Neutral Grey, Beige WWII, Deck Tan, Ivory, WhiteI am using Vallejo Model Color. The colors used are as follows: Neutral Grey, Beige WWII, Deck Tan, Ivory, White

The cloth had previously been base coated with Deck Tan, a nicely muted flat and very light grey. Asa first step painted the recessed areas of the cloth with WWII Beige and after that added thin line in Neutral Grey.

The raised areas are then highlighted first in Ivory and finally, very thinly in pure White.

As a last step I have added a bit of feathering to slightly blend the colours into each other.

This technicque provides very high contrast on the cloth and while the the feathering will only go so far to blend the colours it looks very good from a regular gaming distance.
