Very nice start :DX That paint looks to have gone down well. What brand are you using?

That would be an ecumenical matter Vince.
Nah,tis a mix of Tamiya acrylic paints.I've got some (2) Vallejo flesh tones for Micks head so I'll have to mix them with the Tamiya colours I have.

Ok Micheal has been neglected for too long so got a little done this week.I mixed up some Vallejo skin colour paints I had to give him a bit of colour in his cheeks - basecolour.

Image

Then mixed up some yellow Tamiya for the uniform detail & some brown for the holster & belts.Only problem was the Tamiya paint seems to dry too quickly & maybe not so suited to handbrushing.

Tamiya Suck for Brush painting. But you can add some Vallejo Retarder to it and it will brush. :)

I can't stand brush paint with Tamiyas... I only like using them through the AB. Mick is looking good dude, and I'm very interested in how you'll tackle the face paint.

Thanks for the replies I guess Tamiya is a no go for brush painting.

The Big Fella is looking great Anon. Details look great but now the hard part... the face and eyes! Looking forward to seeing him for real.
