I am still working on a 15mm German Rifle Company for Crossfire and have some great Old Glory troops with helmet covers as well as smocks (zeltbahns? can't be sure I'm not that good at identifying and too lazy to go google it right now) to model it for us.
I used the colors in the Flames of War paint guide for German Fallschirmjaegers. While I am not painting Fallschirmjaegers, I thought the finished product from the FOW site looked pretty good so I went with it.
Why not use the SS Pea Dot pattern you ask? Well I tried it and I keep bungling it up. Plus I think it's too dark. I want to experiment with the reversible smocks as well and see if I can get that cool "dark green on light green" amoeba thing like the Germans had.
|Fig in the forefront is an Old Glory 15mm PanzerGrenadier I think. The plant he stuck in his helmet is a nice touch.|
|I modeled them next to troops in the standard uniform so you can see the difference. It's subtle but a nice effect.|
I suppose since I mentioned them you will want to see my 20mm WWII guys as well? Well don't fret! I am starting the finishing touches on my Disposable Hero squads this evening. I will have them out tomorrow. 1 step closer to finally playing that BKC Battle of the Bulge game!
