Ke-Ho Colours

Some colour thoughts:

The following colours are inspired by Battlefront’s hobby article on painting 15mm WW2 Japanese armour. I’ve no idea how accurate this is and frankly don’t really care: they’re just inspiration for me as the Empire of the Blazing Sun never existed and ball tanks aren’t a real thing either.

  • Base: Green Brown (VMC 70879)
  • Splotch I: Reflective Greem (VMC 70890)
  • Splotch II: Flat Brown (VMC 70984)
  • Line: Desert Yellow (VMC 70977)

Before slapping this on a miniature I figured I would try it out digitally. I’ve taken these colours from Vallejo’s own brochure, but let’s be honest I’m not sure how accurate that is. None-the-less this test swatch only took 5 minutes and $0 to create (which is much easier than getting out the brushes and buying pots of paint) so I think I might continue with it and see what I come up with.


The other option is to do the line with Green Ochre (VMC 70914), but when I tried this is disappeared into the background. This scheme is off the Battlefront guide and what inspired me, but as you can see below I don’t like it so much. It look’s better in BF’s picture so this might be down to the accuracy of the PDF of Vallejo’s brochure.

  1. Mebbe Drop by the store one day and we can squirt out some paints to muck about with and compare?
