People's Liberation Army - the prequel

Empress Miniatures have recently brought out a range of figures of ultramodern soldiers of the People's Liberation Army.

This is a Special Forces figure from set PLA8.

 Armed with a QBZ-95 bull pup rifle, he is directing the other members of his squad.

The base colour for the uniform is Vallejo German Field Grey. Boots are Vallejo German Black Brown.
 The camouflage pattern is based on the Type 99 pattern and is represented by Vallejo extra dark green, German black brown and Humbrol 90 (i.e. Humbrol undead flesh).

The body armour is Vallejo US Dark Green and the pouches are Russian camouflage green.

Lighter shades were used for dry brushing.
A wash of Citadel Athonian Camoshade brought the colours together.

The skin was painted with Citadel Kislev Flesh, washed with Citadel flesh shade
