Wow! That’s some of the best work I have seen on blue denim. Those really look like jeans. Great stuff.

Cheers Carlos, thanks for the feedback ( also Codsticker & traveller). I'm quite happy with the way they turned out.
Don't use bright colours much; I painted the trousers in shades of grey then added some thin washes of Vallejo 'Prussian Blue'.

Excellent.

Part way through the same project but hate doing the face cammo. Its weird spending so much time on a face to paint over it  lol

Ta very much. I'm the same with adding cam cream to faces, managed to talk myself out of it with a lot of these. Sometimes it's the final 'cherry on top' & makes them look the part, on others if the face has turned out better than expected (no Marty Feldman fan club look) I'll just put them aside before going OTT.
Like this bloke




Think I'm done with the SEAL crew, will touch up the guns once they are installed on the LSSC, as I'll probably knock off some paint en route...

Those figs do look good.  Face paint or otherwise...

And those jeans do indeed look the part.  Well done!

Thanks guys.
Here's some others that I did a little conversion to (mainly just arms to hold different weapons).
