I finished up a French Line Infantry Soldier and he came out very much to my liking. I ran across a rather good painting tutorial posted by Carlo Antonio over at Benno's Figures Forum and wanted to give it a go. I have to pause and recognize Carlo for the fantastic artist that he is. It's easy to get lost on his blog looking over his truly inspirational work. I borrowed about half of his color palette directly, made the few desired changes, and voila! As usual, most all colors are Vallejo and a dab of FolkArt thrown in. I'll clear him tomorrow so I can begin on the first batch of his comrades-in-arms (already primed and ready to go!).
I have decided to reduce using a three color system for 15mm and smaller so as to speed up my work. I ended up using three-colors on only about half of the figure which may not sound like much, but I noticed a difference. ;-)
