I’ve spent today figuring out a pallette for my late war GIs. The M43 uniform is slightly elusive (at least to me). It’s green, but with a very specific tone that tends to change under different lighting. Same for US webbing. The uniform itself ended up getting a repaint. I origianlly used AK Interactive’s ‘M43 uniform’ from their Figure Paint line but found it very grainy and difficult to get on with. it can glaze amazingly and holds pigment at really high dilutions, but always seemd to chalky when dry.
First of many new Empress Miniatures US figures. Paul absolutely killed it with these (if I do say so), particularly the faces. Slightly dodgy phone snaps as usual. Apologies for overdoing the angles and the size, but these pics are for sniffing out any problems before I crack on en-masse.
Painted as 41st Armoured Infantry Regiment.
