Death Korps Grenadiers, Work in progress

Just a small update on my 500pts Escalation Campaign Death Korps.

These two units of Grenadiers will form my Troop choice in my Assault Brigade in my Clubs Escalation Campaign we are running. At the moment we are trying to get 500points painted. Every person is in on this on their own level, some just to get it to table top standard, some have starting to produce some real pieces of art. 
Im in on this campaign with the aim of getting my miniatures a little above TT standard but we will see how this goes, I keeps finding things to add all the time.

There are lots of work left for these Grenadiers with washes and shades, highlights and more detailing as painting the glass on their googles and so on. Maybe more work with their bases.

But I have now painted the bases of them all in a somewhat coherent brown colour, giving them all basic camouflage, white "skull" face protection, dark green unit recognition
colour (German ww2 markings for Panzergrenadiers) on one of their shoulder amour and on collar, rank markings on the Watchmaster shoulder and a white stripe on the back side of the helmet (American ww2 markings borrowed from the 29th Assault Brigade storming the Normandie).

So as you see, a lot of work and thoughts has been put into these miniatures. 

Lots of paintwork left to do but they are starting to form up.

I used bits from Perry Miniatures plastic Napoleonics for conversions as can be most easily be seen on one of the Watchmaster here, sabre in hand.

And on a special note, its hard to get good pictures with dark miniatures...

  1. Nice coats. I have to think about such "moro" on some of my units.
