Sloppy's Miners, WIP, Part 4

This is just a quick update on the progress of the miners by Sloppy Jalopy that I am slowly working on.

I have finished another two of the miners leaving just four to go and I am still loving painting these figures as they have bags of character and a real pleasure to paint. I am still keeping with the muted tones but this time I thought I would add a little variation in the mix by giving one of them pin strips trousers.

I have to admit that painting the pin strips, the first time I have done it in a very long time, with a right pain, but these sculpts have lovely flat areas which helped to make it easier and I think that it has come out rather nicely. I was thinking of painting his tank top in a fair isle pattern but I thought that would be a little too much but I might come back to it later.

The other chap I have painted I have gone for the muted, sober tones of a plain green suit but I have added a bit of colour with a red, poker doted, neck scarf. Again this was a dream to paint and very nicely sculpted.

Thats all for this time, so have a nice day.
