Imperial Japan BA Infantry

So no sooner was the starter box at home, was I ripping it open to begin to put the model together!


All I can say at the moment is that I am having fun with these guys! I can spot a few issues with mold lines on the fingers, so will go back and fix that somehow. But really I don't care cause they are a lot of fun to paint up.

Best part is I am also using Scale75 model colors on them almost exclusively. I say almost cause there is a lot of glazes and washes going n them as well.

Still a ways to go on them though, but really liking the direction that they have taken already.. I think I have nailed this yellow khaki color from the WWII Uniforms.. but I am sure there are more than a few people out there that will tell me otherwise ( if so.. what am I missing!!! ).


Just so much to experiment on them, and a lot of firsts for me as well. Let's see how it goes.. and yes there is much more to happen with them!

Enjoy!

    1. Yeah, they have more character in them than one would think upon picking them up the first time. Going to be a lot of fun to paint them up!

    1. Go go go.. I can easily see myself creating another force ( maybe the USMC? ) in the future.. everyone needs their nemesis to go up against!

    1. Haahaha.. I would love to get in my first game against you! Though do you think you can get enough guys put together, let alone painted by April? Say 250-500 points worth? Will ping you on FB to press you more on this and see if I can keep you to your word ;) BANZAI!!!!

  4. Nice models and they're looking good. Ya, I tried to paint the same khaki and I doubt I got it right. The historical painters will have a huge laugh at me when I post that fig.

    1. Looking forward to it Anne and seeing how you did! Though I highly doubt it is as bad as you say. For this color, it was a bit of trial and error before I got the one that I liked the best, but i think it is finally getting there! Just a bit more contrast needed ;)
