Hi John
VJ flesh wash is proprietary and comes ready to use.....I’ll look up the number later and let you know....not in the cave st the moment....the others in the range come in handy as well, especially the black and burnt umber...
If it’s any comfort, most of the time eyebrows come out like Grocho Marx when I do them as well...,
Cheers
Tim

Dude 2,

I don't know what you're going on about Buddy. The figures are looking super to me. Well, maybe the one in the third picture from the bottom could be a star in "The Walking Dead" series!!! Seriously, slap a dark wash on them, a couple of tiny touch-ups and call it a day. They are working in a repair shop and are grubby anyway. They're not marching in a parade…..Keep it coming!!!

Hi John
Nothing wrong with those figures. Well done. Can't offer any help with washes but I'll be interested in what suggestions come forward.

Hi John
The simplest way to add a little character to a face in the smaller scales is a wash with Vallejo sepia dipping wash.
You can water it down and tidy it up with water.
There are a few links, You Tube and other SBS's out there if you look for 1:72 or 20, 25, 30 mm scale figures.
Wargamer's need high volume production with reasonable looking figures, they have loads of SBS blogs to help out
modelers, who have figures as accessories rather than main stars.
HTH's?

Looking good so far John, it should be very busy scenario

Regards

Steve H

Thanks for the comments:smiling:
Even when the camera is on a tripod and on auto focus I can achieve those soft focus shots. It's taken years of not knowing what I'm doing :smiling2::smiling2:
Some very nice work John
Thanks Ian.

Hi mate.
Thank you for those kind comments.
I've realised that its in the wrong section, still not used to all these differing sections. Perhaps a mod could move it ?
