Along side the 1/35 scale figures I've been working on I've also been tackling this fellow. he's been partially built for over 15 years but never had the courage to attempt the camo. Anyway decided to give it a go.

Found another figure that I finished years ago. However this was before I started re-enactment so there are a few changes that need to be made. Will stand the 2 together on a small base.

Very nice mate, tidy work.

I think the only possible suggestion i could make is that a little light grey or white drybrushing on the edges of the dot44 would give it that 'worn'look it quickly gets, i'd probably also plaster the knees, trouser seat and elbows with dried mud.

Its like when i used to do 1/72 scale armour for wargames. If you want it to look 'right' you need to pretty much paint the buggers in brown mud all over but it's not 'cinematic'. Especially the tracks. whenever i've worked with real armour you just cant see the tracks or track pads for mud but i always compromised by painting them 'showroom' finish (so to speak) then really covering the tracks and underside with a mud mix of paint and talc and then lightly drybrushing the upper surfaces with beige and even white on some really sharp angles to make them look dusty and used.

I also find , espeically with figures like these, that a light grey or beige drybrush makes the camo pattern more convincing as it can blur the edges between 'drawings' (like the splotches) a little and make it look less hard edged.
