US Marines

I finished painting my US Marine contingent and I tried out something new as part of the painting process.

Here is one of the finished figures:

At this point in the past, I would have taken the time and black lined the entire figure.

Instead, I tried out a new shading wash using a mixture of artist inks and Pledge floor wax.  Here is a photo with the shading applied:

I kind of like the shading.  It gives the figure some depth, but it also looks much more the part of a 19th century soldier.
