More Fallschirmjäger


Now adding another squad to my Fallschirmjäger project which is coming along nicely. It is of course taking longer to paint these guys with their assortment of different equipment and complex camo, but is nonetheless fun and rewarding. This will be my third entry into the painting challenge so making progress.


 The figures are from Crusader and Artizan and as usual very fun to paint. The paints I used were mostly Vallego and MIG pigments using an AP method followed by highlights.



Another interesting thing is basing size for skirmish gaming in that I've tried both 20mm washers and 25mm washers and found I generally prefer 20mm washers as it's easier to fit the figures in tighter spaces or rank up. My WWII and French and Indian War are on 20mm washers and my SCW and Germanics are on 25mm washers which if I could do over I would put them all on 20mm washers do to the flexibility I find it offers.



I will continue painting more Fallschirmjäger as I hope to have a complete force for CoC. I actually didn't think I would be able to stay focused long enough to see this through anytime soon, but I'm feeling pretty optimistic as I haven't lost any enthusiasm and in fact I have already started on the next  FJ unit!:-)


Thanks for viewing!

  8. These are brilliantly done. I agree with you on the 20mm bases for 28mm troops, most of mine are and I regret those that are not.
