I'll have to try those alternate methods with the next batch, as I'm just sorta winging this one.
I've painted the metallics and washed the models. Nuln Oil on the metal, Reikland Fleshshade on the rest. I'm happy with the results.
I didn't wash this guy's hands yet:
A little edge highlighting on the metallics on this one:
Painted a highlight of Vallejo Dark Flesh on this guy's hands/head:
Haven't done anything to these two yet:
I must say that even for the "African" skin tones, Reikland Fleshshade really enhanced the color by adding the brown pigments. I love washes!
I'm curious how I should edge highlight the black leather masks and such. Perhaps a dark grey and then a very fine line of lighter grey?
