PiP (bolt action): first painted wave of the Nisei

1st wave of Nisei is finished the painting run. It still needs some basing at the moment I am struggling to do good jungle themed bases.
Painting wise there were a few new thing tried out.
(1) Plastic soldier American infantry spray was the base coat with no primer.It also was great for coloring the base.
(2) Some of the face was done using the foundry three done system ie base coat with a dark shade in the recesses and highlights on the raise area.
(3) The PSC infantry spray is a good match for the Vallejo green brown.  The Green Brown was mixed with a little white and used to highlight the raised areas of the model.
Overall I am pretty happy with the first wave of Americans

Thank you for visiting
