Empress Miniatures 28mm late war British (update 19 May)

My go at the outstanding Empress Miniatures Late war British. Again, apologies if lots of people have seen these on Facebook, thought it was about time I went back to forums as well.

Those are really nice. Just one observation, the leather over-smock.

I used to have one, and it was very much darker in colour, and was actually quite soft. Now bear in mind, it was an old garment when I had it 40+ years ago, but the original leather was less orange and more chocolate in colour. I would be tempted to give them a wash of a brown ink, or Agrax Earthshade or similar.   

Doubtless someone else will be along shortly to tell me I am quite wrong, and the version they had utterly different :-)

Ha ha, it's a bit like field grey. I've seen them go from this to this, chose the light colour to stand out against the boring uniform. I should imagine most were in between the two. Cheers :)
