  1. Thanks for this :)
    I am gradually converting over to Vallejo from a Polyglot of sources

    Experimentation seems to be the key, I do follow (quite blindly) the Flames of War painting guides - "The Art of War"

    Trouble is they are quite specific to their ranges

  2. Ah yes... I highly recommend Vallejo. I rarely find myself using any other paints. It's all about experimenting when it comes to uniform colours. I have several colours that I use for WWII British khaki for example.

  3. Thanks Toby.
    Really helpful triads, and I particularly like your podcasts that I saw on the Befreiungskriege site. It has inspired me to start painting again.

  4. Which one is Red 033? I can't seem to find that one.

  5. any ideas on how a triad starting with indigo/midnight blue as a base please?
