Showcase: Bolt Action German Infantry Squad

My German starter force is coming together nicely now that most units have paint, and all but one are based. Today, I'm showing off one of my two infantry squads.

The ten man squads are pretty much identical in war gear, the only difference being that the NCO of this unit has an SMG.

Paint-wise, they are the same as my commanders. The beauty of a historical force is that you don't need as many (read, bright) colours than say, Thousand Sons. Whilst the sons are a joy to paint, these guys offer a nice simplicity which still suits the models.

The basing is also the same. Starting off as a sand coating, the bases are painted with German Camo Brown Medium, followed by Screaming Skull (GW) and a wash of Agrax Earthshade. One the rim is tidied up with more medium brown, the bases are coated with patches of static grass.

Once I've finished the final squad, I plan to do a full army showcase, and get stuck into some matches.
