Hello. Today I would like to present my 20 mm / 1/72 company of American WW2 paratroopers. Figures of Esci/Italieri, Italieri AntiTank, Revell, Ceasar Miniatures and CP Models/TQD castings (last ones are metal, but even so they match perfectly, BTW those are probably best figures in 20 mm, wholeheartedly recommended).

Figures painted green for 1944-1945.
As usually I wanted fastest way (speed painting) and went with:

1. Army Painter spray Necrotic Flesh
2. GW Athonian Camoshade wash
3. drybrush Army Painter Necrotic Flesh
4. equipemnt, weapons, skins, boots etc etc…
I am satisfied.

Marked with great decals of Mustang Game Systems (15 mm, but fit like a glove up to 20 mm , recommended)
as the 101st Airborne Division, but what the hell , I'll use them ….

More at my blog:

No idea why it was crossposted to aviation board, sorry…

Nice work!

They give off a small shine though so perhaps another coat of matte spray might be in order?

Thank You!

Well, I have put 2 coats of matte spray but it coulnt overcome 3 layers of gloss spray. However in reality is quite matte.

Very well done.

Nice work. I too favor the Mustang decals and think they actually work better in 20mm then 15mm though both possible.
