Last night after moving a face cord of wood and hitting the gym, I got to sit down for a hour and paint. The goal was faces and jackets base coated. I knocked out alittle more.
The moccasins got based, layered, highlighted, and washed. I used foundry's deep brown leather #45. The wash was Army Painters "strong tone." The same recipe will be used for all the ranger's moccasins.
Rogers' leggings will be a light tan. Because of this I base coated the ties foundry's sky blue, # 21.
Being a hand-me-down jacket, I did not want it as dark. I want it used and wore looking. Then still using green 45 I added a drop of water and applied multiple very light washes. In reality just staining the coat.
Jacob's leggings are also foundry's sky blue. Uniformity in a unit can be kept with a limit paint palette. I always try to keep the number of different colors used down. It is crazy important to record what paints you use. You will not remember what was used for future repairs or if you need to add minis to the unit.
