While getting the "correct" shade is not important, the right colour is very important! Field Grey is produced by Vallejo, Tamiya, Humbrol, etc. A little research will go a long way before a painting project. Flames of War has a good guide in their webpage. And if you are painting professionally, you will have to get some military colours. They will last a loong time, and are well worth the investment.

After the feedback I got from the Halfling article, I was determined to do another piece, and try and improve the opinions many of the other members had about my painting. I asked Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian for the opportunity to do this, and he gladly obliged.

With the Halflings, my problems were manyfold: I had a lot of other stuff happening at the time (namely, Christmas!), as well as numerous other projects to do with my studies. I was also painting in an area I was not familiar - I do not game much in the realms of fantasy (and being a keen gamer, this is something I have now tried to rectify), and as a result, did not have a clue as to how to paint them. This time round, I asked for a smaller quantity of figures, and something slightly more in line with what I am used to - World War Two Germans.

When I got these figures delivered, I was not surprised to find that they had little flash and were mostly clean castings (just one or two mould lines, that needed minor work).

Essex Miniatures are one of the best and most popular figure manufacturers in the U.K., and this was one of the many things which were running through my mind as I PVA-glued them to my wooden painting bases.

My next step was to do a quick trawl through my resourcebooks and the wonderful Internet to check the painting scheme.
