Test Praetorian Model Finished
So I finished the test guy off (well as much as I am prepared to do, I'm not very good at highlights so haven't really done any). Thanks for recommending adding some green, have given him Dark Angel cuffs, edges and collar and think it really makes a difference, so this will definitely be the colour scheme for the army. Didn't have any bestial brown to undercoat the helmet but painted it bleach bone and really like the colour especially how it complements the now dusty, African plain esque, base.
Any further thoughts on improvement? I was contemplating painting the belt green as well but keeping the straps white, but quite like it as it is now. I wouldn't be ashamed if the rest look like this (with some pouches etc. added, and I'm thinking a helmet badge as they look so good on other peoples conversions).
All I need now is for Victoria Lambs Victorian legs to become available so I can put a big order in! In the mean time I have 2 squads of Penal Legion that should be arriving soon to do, I have a test Paratrooper in the works I just need a head for, some tank conversions and a Commander model I'm too scared to touch yet! So plenty to get on with while I wait. Wife's away at the weekend so might have something new to post up soon, Aussie to UK postal service dependant.
