I am not totally sure if this is Work in Progress or finished as i still have the bases to do but I guess until the bases are finished it is still a WIP.
Well I have actually finished all the painting on the miners and I have to say it has been a very enjoyable project to do. Now this does mean that the Snibston Miners Militia is finished, no not at all. I still have the banner to do and mount and the bases to finish but in general they are finished.
I have kept with the muted, natural tones throughout the unit with just the hint of colour to make the unit stand out and I really think that the unit works well together. I think I have managed to capture that 1930s working men look and because of the limited(ish) palette it has unified the whole unit together.
I think the sculpts have helped and added some of the character to the unit and I have to say it have been one of my most enjoyable units to paint for a long time.
Now you can see the bare bases before I add my things to it and they are simply a 2 pence piece with some fine and mid coarse sand glued to it. After that it is primed black and then base coated Vallejo's Model Colour Flat Earth. Then a light drybrush of Vallejo's Model Colour Tan Earth is applied and then Vallejo's Model Colour Iraqi Sand is light dusted on top as a final highlight.
Next up with be the bases, so until then have a nice day.
