Hello all:

I want to start a Continuation War Finnish force for Chain of Command but can't find a good painting guide.

The only one I can find is from the FoW site and I would prefer one for 28mm figures with more details. There are videos on winter uniforms but nothing that I can find on Summer.

I had found something awhile ago that listed the Vallejo paints and had pictures but I can't seem to find the link anymore.

I would also like one with Vallejo or Reaper paint references for vehicle camo.

Thank you,

You can grab the 'Quick Guide to Painting Finnish Troops' from here:

It is our our quick guide to painting Finnish troops in summer uniform. Not highly detailed, but have used same guide to figures from 10mm to 54mm.
