Okay, this may not look like much progress but the initial base coat and skin tone always takes me quite a while. For these guys its one and a half applications of the base colour, accurately applied for the skin down to all the conceivable nooks and crannies. One and a half because I tend to give the model a once over as I finish off a coat and the majority of what I just did in dry. This gives a smoother coat and almost your first highlight. The time spent on your base coat, especially a skin tone, will pave the way ahead. Taking extra care and time at this early stage will always pay out dividends. Everything from here on is plainer sailing!

Before I forget, the base colour used is Foundry's Bright Bottle Green (Shade), this will be followed soon with an almost complete coat of Bright Bottle Green. With the appliance of colour theory, in terms of hot and cold colours, I am using these blue tinged greens for the shadows and will be shifting the tone by using yellow tinged greens for the real highlighting. We shall see how well this works out.

Stay Tuned!
