First Winter War Finns

I started painting my first batch of Winter War Finns. These are the Baker Company models from their Winter War Kickstarter. I'm still working out a paint scheme for them. I have a lot of them to paint, so I'm trying to come up with something quick that still gives decent results with plausible colors for the uniforms and equipment. Have a look below for some pictures of my initial attempt.

Here is the process I used. There are a lot of steps, but most of them are very quick. Even so, I'm hoping I can come up with some ways to shorten the process and still get decent results, or maybe ways to get better results without noticeably lengthening the process. If you have any suggestions for improvements, please let me know.
  1. Prime Black
  2. Chaos Black - undercoat
  3. Adeptus BattleGrey - paint winter camouflage coat/pants and helmets, leaving black in recesses
