The high lights were done next. The fatigue’s had a 50/50 mix heavy grey/ dead flesh. The leather parts had a 50/50 mix leather brown / desert yellow. The shoulder pads had a apothecary white coat  then highlights of white ink. The weapons had a dry brush of stone wall grey then a wash of nuln oil.

Going with the UN theme I used the runes from the image below to put the marking on the shoulder pads.
