The guys of 1st Squad, Standard Heer Army - each squad will consist of 7 men - 3 assault rifle troops, 1 one of which also has a panzerfaust, 2 riflemen, 1 one of which is the loader for the LMG, an LMG, and an NCO with MP40 - this squad just needs the NCO and the 3rd assault rifleman

UCG.....care to share how your painting those? I watched that guys video about inks but he's doing that on large scale creatures. Not sure inking would work on 15mm?

Great job regardless. It's inspirational!!

Ahh the inks guy - that was for skaven or night goblins I was thinking about

These are just old fashioned painting, models sprayed with uniform grey primer a quick mess about with milliputty to make the hoods and scarves, trousers are a light brown base coat, red and green camo and then a dark wash, coat is a very very light grey and then a dark wash, gun is a very dark grey with a dark wash and then a dry brush of gun metal, face is a pale flesh and then a flesh wash and a very thin red ink for red cheeks and noses for the winter climate - that's pretty much it

After gaining a lot of confidence with these chaps I've decided on a traditional German heer in standard uniform, it's a simple scheme but I really like the feldgrau colour - I'll post when my first one is painted up
