US Army Modern Soldier 1 - Live Resin - LRM-35001


Hello everyone


It's been a while since I've posted anything here, but the time is about to change (hopefully!).


A couple of days ago I recieved 3 Live Resin figures and the detail is simply unbelieveable, I can honestly say I have never seen anything like it in this scale.


I will be doing them one at a time, since it's been a while since I have painted 1/35 figures but I'm looking forward to it.




Anyway!


So far I've only assembled the first figure and here's some pictures.








Managed to get some more work done today, primarily focusing on the uniform. Pay no attention to the faceguard, it will be repainted later.









Update 04/04/2013









Still need a bit of work here and there before it's finished, but it's close now :-)
Not quite happy with how the riffle itself turned out, but cba to redo it now...

Stay tuned for more!

  4. Beautiful! Love the multicam! I've been looking at getting some of the figures from Live Resin and you've definitely provided me with the incentive. Do you mind if I ask what type of paint you used and the colors? I would really like to try my hand at it and this is the best I've seen. Any tips/techniques would be much appreciated.

  6. I used Vallejo Model Colors which is just awesome paint to work with. As for the exact colors I honestly can't remember, since I mixed alot of them. Which of course also means I probably won't be able to replicate the exact result on my two other figures :-D when I actually get around to do those...

    But let me see if I can remember vaguely what I did:
    *Based all the uniform areas with a light sand/brown'ish color.
    *Then I painted on the other colors, I can't remember exactly how many different colors I used, but I think it was something like:
    - Some brown, perhaps Flat Earth from Vallejo
    - A sand/green'ish color
    - A darker green
    - Black
    - White
    I don't remember which color I painted first, but I think this might have been correct order.

    But basicly I just looked up some pcitures of the MC pattern on Google (Fx. http://www.aoaforums.com/forum/attachments/digital-image-photo-video-audio-editing/25164d1270307357-camoflage-seamless-texture-maps-free-use-camo_cloth_multicam_smooth_2048.jpg) and then kinda just winged it from there.

    After I had finished the camo, I gave everything a brown wash from Vallejo, then in the deep folds of the uniform I mixed in a drop of black wash and gently painted gave it abit more depth, also using the same color/wash I gently lined around the leg holster, gear, kneepads etc. just to bring it out more.

    I then highlighted the uniform very slightly, but since I had used fairly light colors it wasn't actually that dark after the wash.


    I'm sorry I can't be more specific, but I simply just sat down with the colors in my head and painted everything in one session without writing anything down....which was a mistake :-p

    But I still hope you can use this somewhat :)
