More done thus more piccies…so finally taking some time to see what the manual settings on the camera can achieve, been playing with it and the pics are better, not as good as id want them but im getting there, so heres a few better pics of previous packs ive painted and pictured.

Ok so onto new packs, as usual no boots and bases done as yet, any figs that may have been hooded smocks I ignored and painted as ss reversible jackets/parkas, shoulder boards have been removed but retained for nco's and officers, added insignia were needed, not sure if I added any helmet covers to these figs.

Happy with the outcome of all these figs, been adapting my flesh tones and wanted a more blurred ss autumn camo scheme which I think looks better on this scale of figure, I think everything is headed in the right direction.


Remembered to paint winter only use markings on the shreck rockets (well some white smudges at least)


Got a bit fed up with the radios so left them as they are to highlight at a later date (also need to attach aerials) the radio set that comes with the pack I forgot to photograph.


Gave one officer an italian camo cap, maybe the yellow is too bright and the areas too big but I like it, left the other officers map blank for now.


Didnt think I was going to like painting this pack, but I reckon its the best finish ive achieved so far, I like the peadot, autumn zeltbahn and foilage combo, I left the the foilage quite dark as thats how I want it appear on my bases.

Usual group shot of current batch, which oddly came out the best pic.

The foilage made my mind up regarding the bases, want to achieve a muddy autumn look with pools of mud and water etc, so thats what il be working on next.

Anyway thx for looking.

very nice indeed, imaginative, and really subtle, makes me want to paint (even) more of these great figures

They are horrible. Send them to me immediately and I'll dispose of them safely…..or something.
