Hat 8203 Indian Infantry

After I've painted my Hat 8180 Gardner Gun and Crew, I decided to paint another set of this period. And the Indian Infantry won the toss. So now you know that more sets of this period will follow. A review of the set can be seen here on Plastic Soldier Review.

The figures are made of soft plastic with almost no flash or mold lines. They painted very well up with acrylic paints. For the skin color I used Tanned Flesh and an Ogryn Flesh Wash from Games Workshop. The uniform is painted with Revell Africa Brown with a Gryphonne Sepia Wash from GW. Other colors used are from GW: Blood Red, Snakebite Leather, Vermin Brown, Mithril Silver and Shining Gold. Washes from GW: Devlan Mud and Assurmen Blue. Revell Paints: White, Tar Black, Blue and 85 Brown.

I've painted one pose of each and I really like how they came out.

Enjoy the pictures!


















Hope you like them!

  2. Good work Peter! it seems that those figures are not so easy to paint so it makes the painting more difficult, doesn't ?

    1. Pascal, they were easy to paint. Not to much small details on them. It was a pleasure to paint them.

    1. Thanks for the kind words and the link José. Saved the link to my favorites. Very interesting information and uniformcolour plates. But you'll have to be patient for the Gatling Gun. ;-)
