More Late War British

I've been busy with the paintbrush recently. Here's the first of a new batch of 1918 BEF.

The pics aren't great due to the rotten weather, but I hope you like them. I'm certainly very pleased. My earlier efforts (http://thewargamestable.blogspot.com/2008/11/bef-are-here.html) took about 4-5 hours each in total, whereas this latest batch took about 2 hours for each figure.

Key elements were painted as follows
Uniform - GW Charadon Granite, Foundry Drab Shade, Foundry Drab shade/mid mix
Webbing - GW Khemri Brown, GW Kommando Khaki, GW Bleached Bone
Puttees - As uniform or with a highlight of Foundry Moss mid
Rifle - GW Scorched Brown, GW Scorched/Vermin Brown mix, GW Boltgun Metal
Leather straps/holsters - Foundry Tan shade then Tan mid
Helmet - Foundry Forest Green shade then light drybrush of Forest Green mid

More on the way!

Thanks! You're too kind. It really is just a lot of practice ... and asking really good painters for advice.
