This week James M made a model for us to use as Lieutenant-Colonel Émile Driant for our upcoming Bois Des Caures game at Partizan this weekend.
Here is the original that James kit-bashed from a Scarab Miniatures communications set member
On Thursday evening James had sprayed with Army Painter Wolf Grey and handed the figure over to to me for a quick paint job in time for the weekend.
Before work on Friday I did the base-coats and then gave a wash of Vallejo Sepia Wash. That evening when I got home from work, I completed the highlights, picked out some detail with W&N inks and then did the base.
In Driants last action it is said that as they abandoned the command bunker they burn the paperwork, so I wanted to show that on the base, it's a simple fire of bamboo skewers with a bit of Green Stuff for flames and a few pieces of paper still burning.
If you are at Partizan tomorrow, pop over and say hello.
