PSC's The Great War - Painted Figures

The first batch are nearly ready now. Another hour's work saw them to this point.
Now the sepia wash has dried, the flesh areas were painted in and flesh washed once dry. Then the bases were painted in grass green. 
The Germans received a coat of sepia wash too. Perhaps not the obvious wash for field grey, but it gives them an authentic grubby look.
I decided that the figures looked a little darker than I'd like, so to lighten things up I gave all the figures a very light dry brush of Iraqui Sand.
I'm now going to let the figures dry for 24hrs before I cut them from the sprues. Then hopefully all they will need is a little touching up before I spray them with Matt varnish. The final job will be to pick out the bayonets ( if they survive!) with silver as my GW Silver paint reacts with Army Painter varnish.

  2. Hi Anonymous,

    The colours used were all Vallejo Acrylics.

    British:-
    Tunic & Trousers = English Uniform
    Boots = Panzer Dark Brown
    Webbing = Midstone (a sort of desert yellow colour)
    Flesh = Flesh (with Flesh wash applied)
    Helmet = Olive Drab
    Weapon Metal = Black
    Weapon Woodwork = bestial brown (from their fantasy range)

    German:-
    Tunic & Trousers = Field Grey
    Boots = Panzer Dark Brown
    Webbing = Black straps & Belt
    Rolled Shelter Quarter = Yellow Tan
    Mess Tin = Dark Grey
    Flesh = Flesh (with Flesh wash applied)
    Helmet = Dark Grey
    Weapon Metal = Black
    Weapon Woodwork = bestial brown (from their fantasy range)

    All figures then washed with Vallejo Sepia Wash and when dry, dry brushed Iraqi Sand.

    Finally Bases painted with a Camouflage Green from their fantasy range

    Hope this helps
