Well the wash was largely a bust putting me back to square one. I was relying on the wash to "tighten" the airbrushed base coats so that I can Drybrush the highlights whilst keeping the preshade green underneath. The result would be a quick, effective but simple method of painting the fatigues. All I gained was losing the built up layers and highlights. Bugger.
Instead of plodding along I turned my attention to my long neglected Flames of War. I base coated my British infantry, painted the flesh and began on the helmets before being called away. Not all bad but frustrating.
