I have been working through painting my Rebels. For those with elementary painting skills (like me) this method works well.

Do not glue the arms on (apart from the commander in the long coat).

Dry fit models and then spray primer (grey).

When dry spray them light sand khaki.

Remove arms. This makes painting much easier.

Paint boots and guns black.

Paint backpack straps and belts leather brown.

Paint cloth backpacks and gaiters khaki.

Paint faces flesh.

Give clothing a coat of green shade (Army painter Military Shade).

When dry paint gloves and pouches tan.

Give the mini a coat of Army painter Strong Tone wash.

Dry brush gun metallic.

Spray with matt varnish.


You can paint the headband on the helmet to denote squad, add simple camouflage patterns to the trousers, and others little details to make them pop a bit more.
