Thanks for all the feedback, much appreciated.

Nearly done with the 28mm Empress modern British blokes I picked up at Salute.
I generally find once I think I've finished and taken some pictures, that I spot something I missed. So I thought I'd take some prior to finishing that way I'll spot things sooner . . . that's the theory anyway.

 







First on the list is the Marty Feldman eyes!

Top notch... they're so detailed it suggests a larger scale.

REALLY AMAZING. Those last figs are even better than the previous you show us. Please, we all multicam lovers need a recipe for that amazin camo scheme! :o

I also think these look a bit better than the first group, not sure what I did differently, possibly more of the lighter areas. I also used a picture of Multicam as a guide so it could be that, as I think MTP is more green;



Colours I used were all Vallejo (apart from the primer which was Halford's matt black);
 Dark sand, Russian uniform, English uniform, Khaki, Military green, German cam.black/brown & Buff.
+ skin tones; Flat flesh & Pale flesh.

Thanks for the recipe mate. The next question is...you get that stunning blend of colors with a brush, or an airbrush?

These blokes are all brush. Not yet gone down the airbrush route, I've thought about it for tanks etc, but so far it's just on a wish list. Could you use one for things this size?

Y usually use the airbrush to paint ropes, in general. Many times I've been tempted to use for the "greenish" spots of the multicam camo, but never decided to use. Your multicam is really great blended, for that reason I mentioned the AB. Your style is crazy.

A detailed tutorial with the multicam would be awesome, and surely it will become very popular over the forums to paint military figures of any size.

Re tutorial: I just sort of make it up as I go along, but I did remember to take a few snaps this time so I can upload those and post them if you want.

That's great! Did you ever try another camo pattern?
