USMC 4th Platoon - Almost Done!

I went as far as I could with 4th Platoon tonight. Bases are finished except for the grass. I like to let the water dry before I apply the grass tufts. After that its just time for touchups and another 15 Marines join the force. I'm really liking the look of these Secret Weapon bases. I went for a charred, dead wood look to them and I think they are looking sharp.

Started the stumps off with Reaper Master Series Walnut Brown. I don't leave the house without this color.

They really stand out against the lighter brown soil I went with.

Stumps are finished and Blackened Brown applied as the outer finish. This is another Reaper MSP that I don't leave home without. Similar to Vallejo Model Colour German SS Camo Brown (I don't know the number off the top of my head, sorry).


  1. Thank you Simon! Hoping to wrap these up tonight and maybe paint something that doesn't involve so many shades of green and brown.
