Spray black and paint in the belts with a can. I then highlighted the canvas with an off white colour.
I used burnt red for the base of the tunic and then highlighted with bright red. I gave the red a wash of dark brown when it was dry too just to pick out some more detail.
the Perry plastics painted up well and I loved the fact you could have fun with the posing. I liked the idea of having a few looking down at their rifle as if they were having trouble loading it in the panic.
