With a Crossfire game coming up on Sunday I've been trying to get a couple of companies of 6mm figs painted up quickly. I'm still a bit unsure of the best colours for the uniforms etc. but I've done what I can in the time I've had available.
First up, Germans.
These are meant to be 1944-ish. I undercoated them a light grey-green and then applied a series of washes. One was the Tamiya field grey, another was the Mr. Hobby field grey, which is rather browner. I still need to give the trousers a grey highlight and paint some of the kit (as well as flock the bases, of course!).
Next up, Americans.
These (also supposed to be 1944-ish) have been painted to the same recipe as my modern Americans. They need a bit of olive drab in there, so I'll try to get a brush to trousers and shirts as well as kit if I have time. It's likely however that, for the time being, undercoat with flesh and weapons picked out will probably have to do!
I'm quite keen about the game actually; I've not played Crossfire before and am really looking forward to seeing how it goes.
The next task is to do up some terrain pieces and finish learning the rules...
