Anyone fed up with peadot and autumn camo?, well im not yet so heres another 2 ab packs, pretty sure I didnt remove or add anything to these.

Usual rules apply, no boots and bases done, some little bits need finishing such as the officers map.
Ive made the autumn camo a bit more busy, I like it though I think I need new varnish as its making everything slightly darker than I painted it…the bottle is a few years old, I have an older bottle of the same make which has gone yellow (Daler and Rowney matt varnish)

1st up some officers

The middle bloke I added a ss division arm band to his peadot tunic.
The chap 2nd from right I gave him a custom made italian camo smock……I think its a fallschirmjager smock, I purposely didnt paint piping on his hat.
The far right chap ive painted a knightscross ribbon around his neck though the medal is hidden from view.

Next up a bunch of prone boys

The guy 2nd from left I think has a smock but because of his pose I thought id get away with painting him in a one piece italian camo overalls.

The middle guy with with the mg42 I painted him as having one piece italian overalls with a smock over the top (basically just painted his collar in italian camo as well) I think it looks quite nice.

These are some of the best painted figures I have ever seen.

They are lovely.

But they are ALL "far right chaps"….

just goes to show, when you have poor figures, a really good painter can make them look good, when you have decent figures, a really good painter can make them look amazing, when you have really good figures, and a really good painter, then the results truly attain another level.

Amazing. I apologize to the forum users because I know it may sound boring, but when I see such beautifully painted figures I always ask for a tutorial.

Hi, thx everyone, they all "far right chaps" because thats all I can paint at the moment..have started to practice with brit paras but im not super happy with them yet.

The blancoed webbing is a WIP at the moment, will keep trying different colour combos

1: The beret is not the right colour,
2: The trousers should be perhaps darker?

They are not finished because of the above questions and other bits need doing such as rear of radio set inside the canvas cover.
The shading hasnt really come out in the pics, I think with all camo schemes at this scale, you have to sacrifice a bit of realism for looking nice at this scale (well thats an excuse I like to use)

Kung..I have previously posted a peadot tutorial both on tmp and the guild

Will do an autumn camo tutorial asap.

Figures look lovely! Trousers are fine. They appear to be a reasonable shade of British Khaki and there were all sorts of variations in dye lots, plus fading. Frankly, I think your shade is spot on.

Berets – you should perhaps go for a darker, duller "wine red" shade.
