The Greatcoat Mystery pt. 5

I've painted up one of the greatcoats just to test my color choices and I am happy with how it came out. Here is a pic...

Colors used are:
  • Vallejo English Uniform
  • Vallejo Khaki (webbing)
  • Wargames Foundry Drab B (flak armor)
  • Vallejo Black
  • Vallejo Gunmetal
  • Washes of Badab Black & Ogryn Flesh
It would appear that some of the colors have washed out thanks to my photo processing software. Overcast skies are not producing a great deal of sun right now so I had to make do with some lamps.

I do want to present these as dirty, muddy trenchers so highlighting will be minimal.

Anyways, thanks for looking and please leave me your comments and/or criticisms.

The war goes on,

Thanks mate. It's funny because now that I cracked this nut, it really gets the creative juices flowing. I am now thinking "Desert Rats"...with shorts & shemaghs.

You've given me some great ideas and inspiration.
Thank you.

Outstanding work, that paint job pulls it all together so nicely. I'm going to have to pike up some more of this pewter sheet for my own greatcoat IG's soon. I may get them finished before xmas then :)

Nicely Done, Nicely Executed. Any thoughts on weathering them further?

Col. Hessler said...

@clt40k: thanks!

@ComHarris: I will "dust" the feet and bottom of the coats with some Tamiya weathering powder. I thought about going for the mud look but I don't fancy having stuff caked on the bases and models. Time will tell I guess.
