WIP Fallschrimjager Squad Part Four

This time I have painted the remaining trousers, bandoliers, knee protection and bread bag in Luftwaffe blue grey, the gasmask bag in a more greenish light olive grey, the belts and Y straps in light red brown leather and the canteen felt cover in red brown the uncovered helmets and everything that should be painted in Field Grey I also have tried to take photos with more light in order to better see the LW Splinter Camouflage.
It has been two weeks since I’ve started this unit and I think that it starts to look like Ronald’s Volstad illustrations of German Fallschrimjagers at Crete from witch I has inspired, don’t you think?

a) German Field Grey

WIP Fallschrimjager Squad from Crete to Leningrad

As I had finished the three Generals I was looking for a new project of a unit this time. I had started painting a unit of Cretan archers because I wanted something simple but painting just flesh and black was to simple so as I was searching my boxes of metal I found out that I had some Foundry’s German Fallschrimjagers, enough to create a squad, and a far more interesting subject don’t you agree? So a new project started on Friday and this is what I have done so far, I have finished all the flesh and the grey green trousers, some hands were left to be painted with black gloves.
