Fallshirmjager finally finished

Despite the relieved sound of the title, I really enjoyed painting these figures. I am glad to get them finished, though, because they are for Craig and the Christmas period saw a number of delays in getting them painted.
No captions, these are the last 29 of the 45 figures I had to paint.







They are painted with a base coat, Army Painter Strong Tone dip, and then highlighting. I find the dip comes into its own when painting WWII figures with the muted colour schemes, and it protects the paint job that much more.
I quite pleased with the flamethrower at the bottom too. I don't know that the photo really captures the blending between the colours very well.
Now - 24 Perry ACW cavalry for John, a Flames of War Panzergrenaider platoon for myself and some Native Americans ( I can't say Indians given that I am doing a project with Indian Indians which might make things confusing) for Geoff.

    1. Thank you Michael. They can't compete with that great Blackadder vignette of yours though!
