Royal Marine Commandos britanniques wearing the Denison Smock at Walcheren 1944. These converted figurines are based on parachutistes britanniques de chez Revell, Airfix, et ESCI, which have received new heads avec le béret, knit cap, ou casque Brodie M.1916 britannique. The Denison Smock has been painted Humbrol Acrylic 5093 Desert Yellow Mat, avec camouflage splotches of Earth Brown et Olive Green. When viewed at the proper scale distance, the smock appears to be camouflaged, although individual camo splotches are only discernable upon closer inspection. To achieve this nicely blended effect, the camouflage splotches were painted avec heavily diluted acrylic paint which allows the base colour to show through et highlight the splotches. The figurines received a final wash et careful drybrush to blend et fade them even further.
Using this technique, a 16-figurine Crossfire Marine Commando Section of two Rifle Groups, two Bren Broups, one 2" Mortar Team, a Sniper, et un chef de peloton may be painted in an evening. The same basic painting technique applies au camouflage DPM britannique moderne, although the base colour et camo splotch colours differ.
