Well here's my first squad ready to be based, still in need of a varnish to dull them down a bit which hopefully I'll sort out over the weekend. I'm quite pleased with the colours but I'm thinking that instead of the grey trousers I may just go for the whole uniform in ''Fieldgrau' purely for ease of painting.
I've decided not to use my original Yank infantry figures as, even though they're both Italeri sets they are huge in comparison to their German counterparts. No worry though as they were purely used to test colours so I shall soon be cracking on with the next batch . I think that the set I bought are the newer Italeri US infantry sets and they seem to have grown a few millimetres in the process. Fortunately the older, smaller versions are still readily available and I also have some of the vintage Match infantry which go really well with the German figures..... So, the project is underway, colours all sorted so now it's heads down and get painting!
