I followed a tutorial found here. While a 40k player, this guy paints his IG troops in all kinds of modern schemes, and he posts step by step guides! Also, having Vallejo's Luftwaffe Green and Khaki helped as well. And that obscenely small brush I forgot about...
This is probably the nicest camo I have ever painted, which isn't saying much but it's a marked improvement over previous attempts. (okay, my 1/72 choco-chip desert was pretty good...)
|I'm happy with them.
|I believe the set I purchased was "US Force Advancing"
|Next to a Zvezda M1A1 for scale. Mounted on pennies. 1 cent per base!
|I am very pleased with how they turned out. But I wouldn't want to be the guy standing directly behind that 1500 horsepower powerpack grille.
Lots of painting still to go. I've finished my "Middle Eastern Regulars" and I'll complete their bases and take pictures tomorrow before work. Have another stand of French Napoleonic troops waiting (decided to knock out a base at a time for Naps and SYW - makes it much easier to do.)
3 more squads of Canadians are primed and have their helmets painted. I will knock out a squad of them tomorrow.
2 more squads of US GI's in ACU camouflage need to be redone and based.
SYW Prussian General needs his horse painted.
A few games in the work as I test out the "single based" concept. First a skirmish game in 15mm (probably FUBAR) followed by a squad or platoon based game where I'll stick the same single-based 15mm troops on sabots and see how they do.
