Thought I would Try my hand at something different. My dad ordered the Band of Brothers learn to play bolt action set, Knowing him it would never get built or painted so I took it apon myself to expand my painting portfolio and get some amazing historical miniatures under my belt. The plan was to shoot for right around tabletop standard and once I do a little more weathering and get the decals on I'm going to call that my tabletop +. As always feed back is both appreciated and encouraged. If you see something you like feel free to ask how I did it, I'm usually good at getting back to people. If you liked this and would like to see more work like it please feel free to follow me here or on my Facebook page facebook.com/TabletopGlory

I would hit that with at least a pin wash of Dark Umber (I personally avoid black as I feel its to stark looking). The wash will help the details pop, but keep in controlled, don't liberally douse the whole thing. I'm not sure what you are going for with what looks like white in the picture. While nothing is truly wrong when doing camo, white would certainly be unusual. A dark yellow would be more appropriate, but as I say nothing is truly "wrong".

 

Here is Glen's WIP on his STuG III: 

 

Glen's showoff; 

 

And some other finished vehicles:

its actually a sandy cream color but my phone doesn't like that color for what ever reason and it always looks bright like that.

Bolt Action is designed for 28mm, yes. However, like any set of miniature rules you can adjust it to any scale. One of the easiest is to convert inches to Centimeters and play it in 15mm. To be clear if the measurement is 6" for 28mm just substitute 6cm for 15mm.

You might try editing the white balance on the picture to bring the color closer to what it should be.

      Couldn't really come up with a color scheme I wanted for her than just said well she's a barbarian so brown armor will always do.

      I probably should of stripped her before painting her, she was primed way back in late 90's with a spray can when I was briefing into the hobby but had destroyed her arm when her staff broke off. Saw her in my bitz box and figured why, not so re-scuplted her whole arm for something to do and just started painting, but some of the detail on the jewelry got gunk and they were hard to paint.

      I know most will say nice face because it came out fairly well, but I loved doing his cloak most.

      Here is the Warlord Unicorn, #14457. I like the dynamic action of this pose. It feels like he is ready to stomp and skewer someone. And we will just call those mold lines 'battle scars.' Did anyone else have trouble trying to get rid of those? I could not smooth the seam on the horn down. 
      He was painted with a pale blue undertone to his coat, and a pale mauve to his mane, tail and feathering. The undertones were lightened up by adding pearl white (#9100) to each layer. I plan to do another one of these in black, once I get my hands on a pearl black bottle.
       

       
      Group shot!
