July 8, 2004 Primed, basecoated and inked
I primed using GW white primer spray paint and then touched up with watered down GW Smelly Primer.
I then basecoated about 4 figs with Vallejo German Uniform #920 and washed with black ink. I didn't like the look of the flesh with a black wash so I cleaned up the flesh with more paint and did a brown ink wash.

Primed white
Based Vallejo German Uniform #920
Light wash Black ink or paint
Heavy drybrush Vallejo Luftwaffe uniform WWII #816
Light drybrush GW Regal Blue
Very Light drybrush Vallejo Luftwaffe uniform WWII #816 again
Highlight GW Fortress Grey

The reason for the 2 drybrushes of Vallejo Luftwaffe Blue is it's too dark and the GW Regal blue was too blue, so an overbrush of Vallejo Luftwaffe Blue toned it down to a good blue. I guess you could mix them then do a highlight.

Next time I'll probably drop the base of Vallejo German Uniform #920 and base with Vallejo Luftwaffe Blue then wash and highlight. It may appear brighter to not need the Regal blue or use it as a highlight.
