Photo Four and Five - Although these two photos look the same, there are subtle differences (honest). Each miniature has now had their trousers painted - Dark Blue base, lightened with Royal Blue for highlights, but this is hardly seen on any of the figures.
I am not keen on the Rackhams Color paints - I find them too thick and the small cube-shape bottles tend to deliver too much paint at a time on my (ring bound, notebook) palette. I bought the Rackhams paints while visiting Scotland in 2007 for less than £1.00 per bottle, and tend to use them for terrain painting rather than figure painting. Saying all that - I feel that the lighter or pale grey uniform colour is in stark contrast to the very dark Krautian Guard miniatures that are featured elsewhere on this Blog.
