MMMMMEGA UPDATE.
While still waiting on my order from Warlord ive been working on the first few of my guys.
First up is my forward observer. who has had his camo done and his trousers have had their first (very dark) coat.
Image
The Tunics are Vallejo german camo beige with flat brown patches and german camo dark green splotches as are the trousers. The base is english uniform.
Image

next up is my CO and some riflemen who are up to the brown stage.
Image
Image
medic

I am using both bits from Fallschirmjaeger and Heer models to represent a force during the battle for Monte Cassino (loosely)

Please any feed back would be useful.
