Only a few more left!!!

It's the wee hours of Christmas eve, so one more post for me... adding to the Empire handgunner unit!

You can see that we are almost there!!!

Once the last two "Ghost gunner" are painted, I will look over the whole unit and do a few extra touches here and there.


  1. The mirror shine on the helmets is f'ing disgusting. WOW! Great job. Seriously that mirror shine is outstanding. Damn impressive! Can you please provide a little detail how you created the mirror shine please. I'd like to attempt to replicate one day.

    Thank you in advance.

    1. I don't have any specific colors that I use (most of the time I either run out or don't have the same color handy!).

      So, the 'sky' part of the helmets is a sky blue (ice blue in some ranges). I lighten it towards the "horizon line" with a very pale yellow/white.

      Below the horizon line is where you want a deep brown. I try to vary the shape of the horizon line to reflect trees, etc. The rest of the 'Earth' part of the reflection is a pinkish brown, getting lighter the farther away from the horizon line you are.

      I hope this is helpful!!!
