I painted 12 of them. I primed them “Leather Brown” with spray primer from The Army Painter. This way I could skip the fiddly leather strap, etc.
I consider myself an average painter. I’m not going to win any awards. However, I think my troops look good on the table, and that’s the point, isn’t it?
These first 3 pics are after a base coat only. The face, however, has a base coat and a highlight coat. He’s blue tacked to a craft stick (with 2 of his brothers) because I do basing after they are painted.
