with 21 more paras to paint it seemed like the perfect time...............

to paint a german instead - i think this is the model equivalent of those guys i see lamenting the pile of board games they have and keep adding to - despite the best of intentions and promises to not choose another force until the airborne were done, i couldnt help it

My German force will be standard Heer but the models will be the SS models because for some reason theyre just a much better looking model and have cool looking smocks. I made the scarf and hood (obviously not visible here, its behind him!) from green stuff, and theyll be a winter force - just a theme, nothing special with different rules or anything

just waiting on some winter tufts and working on how to make snow for the base and hes done

Once you are done painting a figure, do you spray the whole thing with some kind of clear, protective finish?

Nice work!

Just curious, why did you paint the trousers of the German soldier in green camo and not field gray or a similar color to his coat?

Camo smocks were usually reversible - camo one side and snow on the other - I guess that is what 'geek is modeling?
