Late War German painting guide - by popular request!


This is a guide to painting late war campaigning German forces - so looking for a bit of a rag-tag 'feel' - just like my own armies!


Everything from a spray-black undercoat, everything is assembled & bases textured - infantry base-finishing is done *before* painting figures; armour base-finishing is done *after* painting vehicles (I *like* muddy vehicles..!); paint references are for Vallejo Game Color


Once undercoated black, everything gets an overbrush (wetbrush) of Charred Brown



Flesh: Dark Flesh, highlight = Dwarf Skin


Uniform basecoats: Desert Yellow or Cayman Green or Black : Cold Grey 50:50


Webbing / pouches etc: variety from: Beasty Brown / Earth / Khaki


Magic Wash (= Klear floor polish / water / brown ink: 50:30:20)
