Oh boy, this sure puts my entry to shame (as if the rest didn't). Love the flesh tones and teeth. :clapping:

Would you mind giving a run down of the colours used?

Thanks for the kind comments.

For this kind of thing I do a lot of mixing. For the flesh I used Plaka red-brown for the base. I then used some of my last remaining Humbrol acrylic flesh (the original formula) and worked that up with an ivory (sorry can't remember which - possibly the Vallejo with that name). The coats were based on Vallejo ochre brown but I darkened it first with one of the dark browns, probably Chocolate Brown, and then lightened it progressively with one of the sand colours - can't remember which. The greens started off with Vallejo Luftwaffe Cam Green but were darkened with a dark blue (Dark Prussian Blue, I think) and then brought back up with an ochre, or two, again can't recall which exactly. Hope that helps.

:grin: And I do like my Russians. I might do some more in more 'authentic' Russian colours
