Flames of War - Painting Guide - Faces

Hi all,

yes you can do it .. and it still is a fascinating thing. Painting the face to a 15mm figure..... horrible experience ? No idea on how to do it..??? Lets go:

Use a wet palette made with a Folgers Coffee can lid, wax paper and ass-wipe. Add water and your paints stay wet for days... Too bad it doesn't work on the wife...upsssss

To paint faces, I use Vallejo colors from top right to left:

817 Scarlet
876 Brown Sand
803 Brown Rose
342 Highlights Flesh (white and flat flesh same-same)
845 Sunny Skin Tone
955 Flat Flesh
822 German Camo Black Brown
872 Chocolate Brown

I also use 815 Basic Skin Tone as the basecoat. Lets see, thats 9 plus white and black. Holy crap! No wonder its taking me so long to finish anything! I begin by taking a white-primed figure and painting an undercoat of 815 on all the face and hands. Try to keep the paint thin. I add about 1/2 drop of water to a full drop of well-shaken paint. I let this dry usually overnight but if you are in a hurry, into the oven for about 15 minutes at 65-70 degrees celsius.Then its up for slight drybrushing in the colours stated above.
