WWII Tommy

I have been racing through a batch of WWII Tommies by using brown Inks. They seem to be made for the job of shading Khaki and all the other gear looks great with a good wash of brown. I'm very happy because this last batch took half the time but look just as good in my opinion.

It's made me start thinking about my American forces and how easy it would be to paint up a Platoon with the Ink wash method.

So what base colours and what brown washes do you use?

Ink washes have saved my painting career.

When I get time I'll post up some results. My computer blow last night so I'm just waiting to see if everything is ok.

As far as the painting is going, I'm just jumping in with both feet and slapping down loads of colour. Inking everything then highlighting. Works a treat.
