They say that pictures can paint a thousands words but I wish taking pictures would paint a thousand minis for me.  Alas, that is never going to happen and I need to do it myself and this will be a very new adventure for myself!

I’ve never painted any 15mm WW2 figures before so this is a whole new adventure for me.  It has also been so long since I actually painted a WW2 German I have rather forgotten how to do it.  So this afternoon, I have a bit of research to do and work out if I have all the paints I need, and rather than write a thousand words, I’ll let some pictures do the talking.

both ‘colours of war’ books will be good enough for painting one of the main factions in FoW.

If you want more historical forces then the Battlegroup series is worth looking at, because that game adds a lot of supporting roles (like radio operators) which FoW tends to ignore.

I love the research part of any project!

I guess I spent too many hours in public libraries when I was younger, (you know, before the world’s information was digitized).

Awesome buddy we are both doing Germans, great selection of literature. I am especially pleased with the new Colours Up book from FoW.
