Bumping up a scale again. I need a few Paras for a planned 'Isolation' game and here are the first.
Some of the venerable but still rather nice Foundry Paras - I must have had these for almost twenty years.
The 'We Have Ways of Making You Talk' podcast with James Holland and Al Murray has a serialised reading of 'The Cauldron' which is a great companion to painting these.

Hmm ... pics come out rather large. Sorry about that - warts and all it is :-)

Well, I need at least another section but I'd quite like to do a fully 'refreshed' force for CoC (so about a platoon's worth).
It's a tug of love between these and late war British infantry I've got waiting in the wings too though, so I might bounce between the two for variety. Both forces are in camoflage kit but each has a very specific look which I'll try to capture as best I can.

Lovely paintwork, may I ask which colours you used for the Denisonís (Iíve got those same Foundry Paras sitting in the queue, probably for about as long) :)

Sure - all Vallejo which makes it a bit easier.

Smock base colour is Vallejo Khaki. I add a bit of Burnt Umber to it for shade colour and Ivory for highlights.
Green is Luftwaffe Green and Brown is Mahogany Brown. Also with Ivory to highlight although a small spot of Orange Brown in the highlight can stop it going too pink depending on the look you are after.

Hope that helps?

Many thanks Keith, they'll be heading up the lead pile for some Operation Squad Evolution games I think :)

The Foundry British Paras are lovely.
Outstanding, in every way.
