Today I'm sharing some progress on my infantry and sniper teams. I really like the simplicity of painting these models. I don't need to do extensive techniques such as freehand or OSL, but the details are plentiful and keep me busy picking them out. I also have a much smaller palette, which means I am painting these a lot faster.
The sniper team was also made from the plastic Blitzkrieg box; truly a box of many abilities. All I did was use the scoped Kar 98 rifles (or the scope from one on a normal rifle), and added some extra packs, binoculars and so on. I don't think they'll need to be painted any differently to the normal troops, but we'll see.
I've also researched my tank's colour scheme, and it is used up until 1943. This means that if I want to remain historical, I can use anything up until the mid-war period, which suits me well. Although I like the free-reign of the generic list, I feel obliged to follow history.
