Let's start on the figures. The plan, darkish skin (been in the sun!), khaki-ish trousers & shirt. Yellow tabard type waist coat type thing, and yellow helmet. All depending on what paints I dig out of the box and like the look of.

Let's start with the skin.

I think I'll lighten it up a bit on the highlights with some lighter flesh colour, then see where it goes... Don't expect marvels painting the trousers, they will hardly be seen.

The two most worst colours to deal with.... White and yellow!

Really good work Mark!

Thanks guys. The white base under the yellow makes it very bright. I think it needs a touch of orange to make it look a bit more realistic. Perhaps a tiny drop of Rescue Orange to darken and warm it? What do you think?
