Happy with these metal minis. Just need to keep motivated and get back to painting these.

I looked at the Vallejo USMC paint set on the Warlord Games website. In the description they outline what colours should be used where on the model. They suggested Brown Violet on the uncovered helmets, bazookas and webbing?? I used that colour on the tank and the thrower, but had reservations about using it on the webbing.

In most people’s paint jobs online and even the box art etc the Brown Violet is way too green for the webbing in my opinion, but I didn’t want it to be just a Zandri Dust colour either. I mixed a little Brown Violet with some Zandri Dust (about 1 to 4 mix) and used just Zandri Dust on it’s own as a highlight after.

I used Vallejo Mahogany Brown for the shoes and the knife sleeve and pistol holster, but realised this was a bit bright, washed it down with Agrax Earthshade and added some Vallejo Flat Brown to dull some bits down.

I used a touch of Zandri Dust in with a Deathguard Green for the highlight on the uniform high points and layed on a touch heavy on ankles of the trousers and on the knees.
