A few more painted commission figures

Here is the last of the batch of figures sent to me by Geoff: 2 Perry Korean figures, 7 Native Americans and a young Boudicca.
Young Boudicca. A slim figure, and not the easiest face to paint.
Korean command figures. Geoff will add the standard when the figure gets to him.
The first of the Blue Moon Native Americans. I was so happy with the final skin tone I almost didn't feel like painting the rest of the figures. The photos make them look darker than they appear on the table.




This guy is my favourite.
The skin tone was achieved by using Vallejo saddle brown as a base and then mixing in more and more flat flesh for highlights. When that was finished they looked a bit light, so I made a glaze of Vallejo cavalry brown and washed the figures in it. I'm very happy with the final look.

I now have Craig's 15mm Flames of War Herman Goring Division unit to paint, but tonight I might have a break from painting.

    1. Thanks Rodger. Not sure what kind of game she will end up in. Geoff has some Gauls sitting around now...

    1. Merci Phil. She is cute - try not to think about what she will do to some captured Romans in a few years time!

    1. Hi Tom
      She is a hasslefree figure. Go to fantasy humans and then she is named Boudi. Direct link here if it works:
