Old Man

The trouble with painting historical WWII stuff is that it can get a bit tedious, doing the same uniform and colours time and time again; hence the recent host of piccies and musings on other things.

I have been trying different models, and different techniques, to give myself a bit of interest and contrast to the whole units.

The lastest effort is some practise on painting older skin, using Hasslefree Miniatures 'Old Man' as inspiration.  I started as usual, White basecoat with black wash to show texture; then Kislev Flesh, washed with GW Agrax Earthshade.  The face and hands then got an additional wash of GW Leviathan Purple, paying particular attention to the folds around the eyes.  Finishing touches were a grey glaze for the stubble; a red one for nose and cheeks, followed by a Kislev Flesh/Light brown mix dabbed on the top of the head as Liver Spots.x
