WIP - CAPT Kara Black - Sedition Wars Pt. 2...

Slow going on this one due to being too knackered to be bothered with painting after work at the moment... Thankfully (?) some mechanical problems with the car gave me the perfect excuse to stay home today and get a little painting in.

I'd decided a while back that I'd try for a brown leather look on the vest - similar to an aviator's jacket. I'll probably add some subtle edge highlights here and there but I'm reasonably happy with how it turned out. The colours for those who might be interested are - VMC leather brown, VMC camo black brown, VMC dark sea blue and VMC desert yellow.

WIP - CAPT Kara Black - Sedition Wars.

I was looking forward to finishing up Inigo but with the deadline fast approaching for my WAMP challenge entry I decided that it was time to make a start. 

It's always a pleasure to work on miniatures like this - beautifully sculpted and cast - McVey's resin along with Kingdom Death's is peerless.

The face is almost finished - just some more nuances of colour to add here and there, same with the hair. I was however at a bit of a loss as to what colours to use on the uniform - was thinking of a dark brown to get away from the official version but ended up going with VMC dark blue grey - different enough but still blue just because it works well...
