The first batch of German Fallschirmjager are complete.
I’ve finished the first lot of Warlord sprues that I got in their Xmas sale which were half price. I also finished the specialist units I got from Black Tree Designs, which were also in one of their half-price sale. I added a mortar unit, MG34 machine gun unit, 2 Panzerschrek teams, 4 snipers and 4 communications/radio men.
They were painted with Vallejo colours and have the standard camouflage colours of sand, brown and green.
I used the following colours for the main parts;
- Smock: German Camo Beige 821, Flast Brown 984, Russian Green 894
- Trousers: German Field Grey 830
- Helmets: German Grey 995
- Webbing/ Bread Bags: Dark Sand 847
The stands are made from rough sand fixed with PVA and painted brown, then highlighted white with some green flock added in patches.
Overall I was quite pleased. I have another 2 squads of plastic Fallschirmjager to complete.
