A while back I ordered a Death Korps command squad and painted them up for fun. Along with most people who know about them, I've always wanted to collect a few of these. Of course, the cost makes a whole army unattractive. I've added an infantry squad to the collection. Grenadiers are up next. We'll see where this goes, but I don't plan on collect a whole army at this point. I'm sure many currently proud owners of Krieg armys have said something similar in the past.
I made a few changes to this batch from the previous set.
- The biggest change was the coats. They are a good deal lighter in color. I did preshading with an airbrush/drybrush and added the color on top as a glaze. Nuln Oil was used for selective shading of as a final step. This give a better blend with MUCH less work.
- Leather bits where done in more of a brown tone. The first batch had a red/brown tone.
- Tried to do a proper OSL on the plasma gun.
