Painting US Mechanized Infantry (III)

Stage Three: painting the 'chips' was a challenge in that in reality you shouldn't be able to see them at this scale, but they are a distinctive element of the uniform so they need including. I used Vallejo's (70862) Black Grey to paint some small dark dot clusters in the uniform. I found the temptation to just do this on the sand areas as it is hard to see on the brown but resist the temptation! That is because when you add white dots on top, they contrast better on the brown than the sand...

I also painted the weapons and boots using the Black Grey at this stage.
