Part 8: painting highland division
Before painting the miniature it was glued to a 3mm thick 28mm mdf round base. This base was then given a coat of pva and then dipped in sand.
The miniature was primed with army painter leather brown. This is available in a spray can or bottle.
I used an airbrush for this first stage.
The miniature was dry brushed with army painter monster brown.
The helmet, webbing and boot covers “i forgot the boot covers and had to go back at a later step” were painted with army painter army green.
The helmet, webbing and boot covers were highlighted with army painter necrotic flesh.
The tarp or roll matt on the back pack was painted with army painter angel green, as well as any grenades on the miniature.
The body of the gun was painted with army painter fur brown.
The boats were painted with army painter matt black.
All of the skin was given a solid coat of army painter tanned flesh.
The skin was highlighted with army painter barbarian flesh.
All gin barrels, triggers and bolts were painted with army painter gun metal.
A small stripe using army painter ultramarine blue was painted on the right shoulder.
A red circle followed by a white did in the Centre was painted over the blue stripe using flames of war flat red.
The miniature was then given a coat of army painter soft tone dip.
It was then put aside and allowed to dry for a full 24 hours.
To finish the miniature I sprayed it with a coat of army painter anti shine matt varnish.
