Warren's Germans Get Some Colour

44 Comments

Warren has been hobbying up a storm, and has even made a start to adding some colour to his German army.

Having had a thought on what colours will work best for these tiny fighting figures, Warren whips out his air brush and gets stuck into painting.

Plastic shot glasses are amazing, it might have been me who suggested them. I use blue tac to stick models to the top of them – it is a cheap way to get a lot of paint handles and they are comfortable enough to hold, use them to clean brushes in, mix glue in, mix washes in. Easily cleaned so can be reused and handy when you fancy some whiskey and don’t feel like drinking out of the bottle or a coffee mug!

Great idea with zenithal highlighting @warzan might have to try it.

I haven’t painted any 15mm models yet. I must admit that scales smaller than 25mm intimidate me a little. I know, in my logical brain, that they don’t require the same level of detail as larger models. But, my irrational brain says I need to detail them like larger models. It gives ,e a little bit of

It’s not that bad. A good base coat along with strategic use of highlighting and shading gets the job done. I personally think 15mm is easier to paint than larger scales… you’ll get use to it after painting a few bases.

I wonder if Warren would of tried to cut corners if GW`s new contrast paints were out right now. 15mm is a little small but would paint up the guns and infantry fast.

That’s something I would like to know as well …
might have to be a bit more careful so as to not to drown the models, but it has potential.

@warzan will you be sticking with field gray for the tanks or going with a dark yellow?

Ah right, that does it. What does my bloominn’ airbrush work ok for 5 minutes, then bubble out the side, then not spray at all?

I’ve cleaned the blighting thing yet it seems to hate me.

I reckon once they are based they’ll look absolutely fine for gaming. It’s all about the base. No rebels.

I am still trying to get the courage to use an air brush.
I need some sort of air brush painting series to help encourage me. @warzan could be the guy to make it happen.
Loving your work and enthusiasm. Project your army!

I’ve always felt with 15mm soldiers. It’s the basing that makes them look great, far more then the paint job, well done warren!
