Fantastic shading on those. Is that all created through layering? Do you use washes with things like the flesh tones and off-whites?  You'll have to have a "how to" session one BLAM!

Beautiful. I am using this as inspiration for my Swedish WWII battle group.

Ok, no more Italians. I ask the twins next February if they will do Italians and Americans in the future in plastic.
Your new stuff is fantastic again, but after reading the rules I think the system is a little bit to vehicle for me. Looking forward to test it in October.

Thanks fellows  Smiley

Fantastic shading on those. Is that all created through layering? Do you use washes with things like the flesh tones and off-whites?  You'll have to have a "how to" session one BLAM! 

Steve, actually, the metal figures are somewhat impressionistic sculpts compared to the beautiful precision of the plastics... A somewhat impressionistic paintjob seems to work better on them... So these are block coloured in over a dark brown spray undercoat, then a thinned wash of Army Painter strong tone ink over the paintwork to show where the lines and creases are, then some pretty rough and ready highlighting - a couple of layers - then an even thinner wash (like almost 100% water) to tone everything in a bit more together. Then matt varnish. That's it  Smiley

If you looked at these closely, you would not be very impressed, truly. But somehow they manage to look quite good. Who knows... Perry magic...  Wink

I was thinking they had a sort of 'Manet-like' style- relatively hard edge tonal shifts.

Whatever it is, it works Smiley

Thanks Richard.  I've never used Army Painter tone myself as I normally use Citadel washes. Do you find the tone gives you a better effect when used for definition,  etc?

The AP inks/tones are a bit less viscous than the Citadel ones. A bit subtler too I think. I'm not a regular user of washes, inks and so on, but these Perry WW2 figures are so small and (in the case of the plastics anyhow) so detailed, that they kind of demand it if you want to be able to make out all the lovely little details of pockets, pouches and so on...

All-round delightful.

Hammers image reminds me of the Danish movie 'April 9th'.
