The largest section on the FSA infantry models is their long coat. The coat makes up most of the surface area of the model and for the most part is very flat and without detail.
The colour that I’ve used for the coat is GW Karak Stone – a layer range paint that gives a good, earthy tone. As a contrast to the Karak Stone the cuffs and coat tags were painted with GW Bestial Brown.
The model’s cap was also painted in the same colours – the Karak Stone making up the material while the Bestial Brown was used for the rim and peak of the cap.
I did start to paint the backpack straps in the same brown as the cuffs then forgot that it is a different brown to the one I was using so just try to ignore that in the picture below – thanks. The backpack was also done in Karak Stone but the top flap was left for the next stage.
When doing this stage try to paint around the belt, pouches and equipment the model has around its waist. These will be picked out in more detail later on.
So that is the coat done – in part five I’ll be doing the Belt, the belt pouches and the backpack. Thanks for reading.
