WW2 Painting and an Elven Gazebo   Leave a comment

Figures cleaned then stuck to base and ground scatter applied. All sprayed black. Then bone white spray added to figures whilst masking artillery. Contrast paints will not be of use on the flat artillery pieces. These are then painted in German camouflage ochre or Catachan green olive drab. Next they are washed with AP strong tone and weathering powder applied.

The figures are painted using contrast paints. See earlier post for source of advice on colours, plus the Artizan guides are helpful. Some flesh added at end and commando khaki wet brush used for the British webbing.

Brown paint added to the bases, highlighted with cream after a strong tone wash.

German PAK 40 3 crew
British Army Vickers Machine Gun 3 crew
German Heavy Mortar 2 crew (2 other crew on separate bases to follow).
British Army 6 pounder AT gun
Casualty or Shock markers etc
