Some more Fallschirmjäger


Operation Squad is running very hot these days within my gaming circle(I'll give a review of the rules one day time permitting). In summation we love the rules!!
I noticed that I had too few Fallschirmjäger to play them properly the way I wanted so I've painted up a few more.
What I had forgotten was how darn hard they are to paint with several hours at least for each figure! However, I'm pleased with results and looking forward to adding them in my next game.
All are armed with Kar98's and in jump uniform.

Thanks for viewing!:-)

  1. Very cool Christopher. The FJs look great. I haven't heard of those rules before so I'll have to look them up. The rage around here is currently the new Bolt Action rules.

    1. Thank you.

      I'll probably pic up a copy of Bolt Action, but that's platoon level I think and I prefer squad.

  2. Superb painting on the camo, and a handy reference for it, if ever I decide to dabble with the FJs.

  3. Excellent Work, Camo patterns always end up taking longer than you think. I would be interested in hearing your receipt for the blonde hair on the bare headed figure?

  5. Basing on this is ace. I like the blonde / bare-headed one the best, you'd done solid work bringing out the expression.

  6. These are amazing. I really like the cammo patterns on the smocks. Its very hard to get the right look on German Para smocks, but my goodness, these figures certainly have it! Great painting.

  9. They are real beauties Chris, FJ are a hard paint that's probably why not many gamers in your circle have them!!

    1. Thank you Ray and yes it appears they are far more intelligent(or more clever) then myself to bother with it!

  10. Great cammo Chris. Well worth the hours you put into them.

  11. Still one of the best places to visit! Lovely, those - sci-fi camo is so forgiving!

  12. Cracking work on these guys! Reminds me to do some more too for my FJ army :-)

  13. Great looking figs! The camo is very well done and I'm sure it's not easy to paint. Great looking bases and your "backing terrain" always looks fantastic. I'm looking forward to your rules review!

  14. Gorgeous work, Christopher! That splinter pattern effect you achieved is brilliant. I look forward to your review of 'Operation Squad'. The guys around here have been bitten with the 'Bolt Action' set but, being a rules junkie, I always like to hear about new ideas/approaches.

  15. Beautiful painting, as always Christopher. It's difficult to imagine these German paras being painted any better.

    Kind regards

  17. Nice bases, is that static grass they're siting on? I tried to spread it like that, but it never sticks up as well as that.
