How would you paint the coats on the Steel Legion soldiers the same way GW paints them? Thanks in advance
I've bought a lot of Steel Legion figures on ebay over the last year, and they have come in many different colour schemes - fairly few in the standard GW colours.
The best seem to be either blue/greys - shadow grey? - or dark browns, giving a stark, tough look to the figures.
The one colour I have not seen is green, or any type of camo pattern
yah, but i wanna do the beige colour uniform because i think they look sweet, but unfortunately i have no experience in painting that kind of beige yellow.
I got pretty close by doing them like this:
-Undercoat bleached bone
-Secondary coat of Commando Khaki
-Wash with Brown Ink
-Drybrush bleached bone
You should paint all of their accessories before you start the trenchcoat then touch up any stray paint marks when you're done. I used Scab Red for the gloves and belts, shining gold for the eagle and lightning bolt insignias, boltgun metal for the goggle lenses and parts of the gun, and codex grey for the bedrolls and it turned out pretty nice. I'm not done basing them yet but I painted the base Bestial Brown then used a combination of baking soda and PVA glue for snow. (My vehicles are in an arctic paint scheme)
Afterwards I sealed them with a 50/50 mix of Future Floor Polish and water. It doesn't make them too shiny and protects them pretty well from banging into each other when you pick them up.
