Wargames Atlantic WWI French Infantry - WIP

Managed to get to the Minwax staining phase rather quickly as the uniform is very basic. Only used a handful of colors: Vallejo Beasty Brown for the rifle stocks, boots, leather equipment and hair. A mixture of Vallejo Bonewhite and Khaki for the breadbag and Elf Skintone for the face and hands. Finally, Vallejo Gunmetal over a black undercoat for the metal parts of the rifle/bayonet took care of the rest. The three officer's kepis were given a little more attention - Vallejo Dark Prussian Blue, Bloody Red and Gold.

Below image shows the figures before the staining.
Found the image below on a Google search - a very good painting guide for Poilus.
Thanks again for stopping by and wishing you all the best.
