First 2 figures finnished. With my desk lamp they look a bit too shinny, but here is the pic:

You are welcome Nacho. Here are some pictures with natural light of the finnished figure. Well, just have to add the AK74.

Wow, Marcos. Thank you very much for this tutorial. Now I'm working on a Woodland jacket and I'll use your ideas.

Thanks again for sharing your superb work.

Added a little wash with black oil very thinned.



Painted the gloves black then dry brushed them with black and a bit of white:



Body almost finnished:

Added some "spots" of oil paint. White, ocher, and yellow, to start the filter:


After blending, still wet:

Here I have done the green pattern and I am starting with the black:



Finnished with the black:



And this is where I am at at the moment. I think next I will give a couple of filters with oils to see if I can get a more "worn look" on the camo.

Next we start with the brown. I used Vallejo flat brown. Refer a lot to your picture references for the pattern. Just remember seam lines. The pattern is printed on the cloth and not on the finnished uniform, so make sure your pattern changes as you go over seam lines.



Also be careful when painting small areas like ammo pouches and so on to avoid doing a "miniature version" of the pattern. Again, keep checking your picture references.

Next, on the uniform and the webbing I applied a base color, going with the lighter color of the camo. I used vallejo dark sand with a touch of yellow green.



To this base I applied a wash of Vallejo sepia wash:



Then drybrushing with the base color with a touch of white:



This will give a basic effect of lights and shadows.

As promised I will do a little tutorial on the syrian camo with my next figure. So I will pick up where I left it:

I had previously painted the face, so I started with the T-shirt. First a base of Vallejo Military green. Then a wash with Citadel's Thraka green wash. And finally dry brushing with the base color (military green) and a touch of white. I covered the face and arms to work more easily the dry brush.

Thank you Charles. All the figures are Paracel exept for one black army models figure (the finnished one).



I bought some of their figures for my last diorama. They make very good figures.

Thank you Nick, Mike, and Mark. And mike, I have gone through a lot of figures and Paracel's are up to par to the best of them: good molding, crisp detail, right scale, etc. The owner, Jang is a really nice guy. On my first order the package never arrived and he sent me a second package free of charge. His service is nice and friendly. He even sent me an e-mail inquiring if everything was all right after the earthquake we had. Like I said, really nice guy.
And Mark, not long ago I used to say the same thing. Even now I say I am far from the "Masters", but I have fun, and practice, practice, practice. There are several good tutorials of different techniques on You Tube. Try them all, and find what works for you.
Cheers!
