Taking a historical approach to painting.

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

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 .

It's not frowned upon, there are no reasons why you shouldn't do it, you could (and probably should) paint the troops vehicles with colour schemes as close to the historical ones as possible.
