This was an amazing entry. What probably stood out for me more than the quality of your figures was the way you were able to bring out the woodwork on the gun.
Can you explain a little more how you did that? Was it just a matter of base color, wash, and then dry brush??

Hi Dutchboy! Thank you very much!

OK, here is how I did the wood painting....all colours from GW or Vallejo Game Color.

1. black spray primer
2. First coat painted with "scorched brown"
3. Second coat with "bestial brown"
4. Thin stripes with "vomit brown"
5. Thin stripes and accents with "bleached bone"
6. Washing with "gryffon sepia ink"

I always paint wood in stripes and let the last coat visible a little bit. No drybrushing.

Regards from fu**ing cold Bavaria!
