Flames of War Open Fire!: German Panzer Grenadier Infantry Assembly and Painting
It came with everything you need to field two decently sized armies and the necessary tokens and even some cardboard terrain pieces. I started by mounting all the figures on panergrenadier sticks, there was around I base coated them in a dark grey generic spray can from Walmart.
I would always recommend getting that German Field Grey colour, because, well. I mean look at it. Now taking a bit more care I used a medium brown for the gun stocks. I chose a medium brown because I planned to use a brown shade that would darken the tone to a richer look later in the painting process. Next came my trusty Walmart 99 cent Pavement colour.
Any flat dark grey will do. I did this for the gun metal, boots, ammo crates, webbing, panzerfausts, grenades and radios. This step took a little more time because of the detail work, but I used a sizable brush and tried to go as quickly as possible.
I chose that simply because I had it on hand it came free with some minis I purchased!
Reaper is an amazing company. This was another stage that took a while because you want to panzergrenaier careful not to waf up your work, and some of the faces in shooting positions have small gaps to access with the paint brush. Take your time on this step. Basing them is as simple as super gluing them into the bases provided that have drilled circles for the men to stand in and be flush with the floor.

This stage I was back to the massive brush and just basted the minis row by row. You can be fairly liberal with the soft tone wash, because as scary as it looks putting it on, as it dries it becomes much, much lighter and I think gives fantastic results. I might never use Agrax Earthshade again, which can be very hard at times. The front view of this platoon shows off the depth added by the soft tone wash flamfs looking like a comic book drawing with really strong contrast.
It made the paint a bit more fiddly at times, but was worth it. I used Vallejo Ground texture grey sand. I only discovered the brown stuff after having bought the grey colour, just my luck. It was a pleasant surprise I meant that I forwent doing a highlight of light brown. As a group, they look formidable, even though some details I just left out.
I used simple generic brand school rlames white PVA and squeezed it on the bases in blobs. I used a trashy brush to spread it around in patterns and patches and then pressed the dead grass into it and set it aside. And here they are.
I really like the sculpts, and the finished infantry bases are really cool. Will I take a break panzergrfnadier painting infantry for a long time?
Painting those was kind of a chore. Mostly the brown grey and flesh tones, those just took a long time. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Twitter account.
