It was now time for the webbing. While the uniform was definitely done for the desert, the webbing was the standard british olive drab. Don’t know how effective this was in real life as on the tabletop it does make for a lot of contrast and easy spotting. I guess this was due to the unique way the Canadian Army is administered. Soldiers had the same problem in Afghanistan where they were first deployed wearing their forest-pattern CADPAT camos.

Anyways, to the painting. After some tinkering and painting on paper etc. I found out that Formula P3 Traitor Green is a pretty good match to the color of the webbing worn by soldiers of the 22ieme. No mixing here, simply thinning the paint with Liquitex Flow Improver and water. The Flow Improver helps control the brush and I couldn’t live without it now.

Once the basecoat was dry I washed the webbing with Citadel’s Coelian Camoshade and once this too was dry I redid the midtones with Traitor Green. Where I felt it needed more highlights I added some Formula P3 Ordic Olive to the mix. However, I was very parcimonial with this highlight. I didn’t want the webbing to show too much and steal the show from the rest of the mini.

Sorry for the poor quality pictures, my tablet is not very good when it is dark.
