a client sent me his axis army and told me to paint hem however I wanted so I have a few questions.
I haven't read up on the fluff much yet so I don't know if this is a good idea but Id like to paint these models to look more historical. For instance, painting the infantry in the accurate historical colors. I think the laser grenadiers would look cool with the camouflage parkas like the Waffen SS, for instance. I'd also like to paint the walkers in the historical tank colors/camouflage.
I'd like to know if this kind of thing is frowned upon for any reason? Are there any reasons I shouldn't do this?
Also, I'd like to base these in a more traditional way for miniatures. I wanted to put a bunch of urban rubble on the bases but don't know if that's a typical approach or if that's generally frowned on in the community.
Basically what I'm saying is I don't know a lot about the game and do t know if I am doin things so completely wrong or if its cool.
I welcome all opinions. Thanks .
