Well my wife and I have been painting for many weeks. Today we have finished painting 5 squads: Recon Boys, Recon Grenadiers, Kommandotrupp, The Gunners/Bot Hunters, and BBQ Squad. Some of the designs were inspired by Loophole Master.
I have a set of decals that I will be putting on sometime. Perhaps next weekend.
Recon Boys - this is my least favorite paint job.
I am using Vallejo Paints and I initially ordered a 16-bottle WWII German set and have since ordered more paints for a lot more options. I wanted to use the darker grey (German Grey) for the Axis and lighter (in this case Vallejo Neutral Grey) for the Allies. The problem is the neutral grey is a little too neutral and a little too boring for me. I hope the decal adds something to the shoulder.
I am also considering painting some kind of rank or marking on the shoulder armor. I recall a blue line of someone's and that looked neat.
Any feedback to make the unit more interesting would be appreciated.
