Painting Great War German Infantry – Part 3

There’s not actually much painting in the third, and final, part of my series on painting Great War German Infantry.  As you’ll remember from last time, the Stellungsbattalionkämpfer figures were at least 95% finished at the middle of last week.
I did, however, get the chance to add a German command group, and finish some casualty figures which have been on the painting table for a while.

So, what changes did I actually make to the Stellungsbattalionkämpfer?

Painting Great War German Infantry - Part 2

You wait for three months, and then two blog posts come around at once! Fired with renewed enthusiasm following yesterday's post, I finished the highlighting on the German troops I've been painting for what seems like months (actually, less than three weeks). As I mentioned yesterday, there wasn't much to do on the highlighting front.

The main job was painting the German feldgrau uniform.

Painting Great War German Infantry - Part 1

It’s taken a while to get round to this blog post, so thank you for bearing with me.  Sometimes it should be very simple to paint a handful of wargames figures, and just sometimes life conspires to do everything to prevent you doing just that.  Weekends away, swamped with work projects, friends' birthdays, sorting out the garden – the list goes on, and at each one of them the couple of dozen figures you’d planned the month before are still there, looking at you from the painting table, accusingly.  I’m sure you’ve all being there, at least at some point.

Anyway, as promised in the last post, here’s part 1 of a quick walk through on painting Great War German infantry.  It is not, I hasten to add, a tutorial or instruction!  There are hundreds of ways of getting a decent tabletop result for a 28mm.  And many, many better painters than me.  You really don’t have to go far to find people all over the internet giving helpful advice on how to paint figures, units and armies.  (And these are people who are far better organised than me as well and manage to post blogs less than almost three weeks apart!)

But with those caveats in mind, this is my way of getting a group of figures painted.  Hopefully it sits reasonably well alongside the companion posts I did last year on paintingGreat War British infantry.
