Septembers painting produced a small recon team for BKC and provided me with a test scheme for my Germans. I am calling them ‘Hollywood Germans’ as I am probably the least likely person to either know, or care about, ‘proper’ uniform colours or styles. My childhood was filled with old war films that left me with a youthful impression that all germans wore either black or grey uniforms. (I can also probably blame those early plastic toy soldiers for reinforcing the mental image.)
Most of these figures were purchased as a job lot from someone that knew even less than me as they mixed various styles and uniforms on some of the bases… With that in mind, and about 100 tiny men to paint, I was never going to give them more than a base coat and wash.
All in all, at arms length, that’ll do!
Will my eyes survive all this tiny detail painting…
