The first platoon I put together and painted was my Grenadier Scout platoon. These troops were to give my Stugbatterie the recon that is so neccessary in todays tournament environment. They would also work in tandem with the StuH platoon vs. Gone to Ground infantry and gun teams.
|Basing- This was the first time I used Vallejo's Brown Earth Paste and I was thuroughly impressed. I use a small artists knife to spread it around the bases then add a few small rocks I picked up from a railroading store when I was in Osaka.|
|After it's dry I used a brown enamel wash from AK Interactive. Once that's dry I trim up the edges and paint any camouflage and super-detail stuff. Also I highlight the ground with a few different colors and paint the rocks.|
|I like to paint my base edges in an appropriate color. For Heer troops I use Panzer Grey. The small stuff like waffenfarbe and collar piping really can make your infantry stand out. Also, Splinter Camouflage, once practiced, can look brilliant.|
