A little log of my painting progress.
Great painting, though historically their berets were some sort of grey color. But these look really nice anyways :-)I have a few of the British Para's and they are pretty small as you say, but they fit in with the rest of the Bolt Action range rather well.
I had wondered about the colour of the beret, I had a google around and struggled to find any decent pictures, in colour, to aid me. Thanks for letting me know though, It should be easy enough to run a light grey over the blue. Cheers
They certainly look the business Mr Smillie. I might need to get my monitor checked as the berets already look grey to me!
Yeah the color is somewhat hard to describe, like light grey with almost a blue tint to it. I found this picture which will probably be more useful than my poor description http://home.tiscali.nl/nijsten/Pictures_Headgear/polish.jpg
Thanks Anatoli, thats really useful. Should be easy enough to add a bit of a darker hue to the berets.
