Fantastic paintjob, great work on the camo and the wood in particular!
Wow - that is incredible camo painting!
VERY nice... would they have worn that style of camo from the beginning of the war??? So in France in '40? The onyl reason I ask is that I have some 15's painted with that camo (not as good as yours!) but I game France '40 and I thought I'd need to repaint them... :o)
Thank you for your comments.Hi Steve: Thanks. This camo was in use since the beginning of the war. I have "copy/pasted" some info.Text from http://www.germanmilitaria.com/WaffenSS/photos/S024564.html"S024564 FIRST PATTERN PLANE TREE CAMOUFLAGE HELMET COVER. (Stahlhelmbezüge)BACKGROUND: The development of SS camouflage items was initiated by Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler in 1935 when he tasked the Reichsführung-SS, (National Leadership of the SS), to begin research of new camouflage patterns and garments for use by the fledgling SS-VT, SS-Verfugüngstruppe, (SS-Special Purpose Troops). In late 1936 and early 1937 the first SS camouflage garments were issued to personnel of the SS-VT Standarte Deutschland for field testing and evaluation. The first items evaluated were the Quarter shelters/ponchos, followed by steel helmet covers, face masks and smocks. As the war continued various other clothing items were produced in the assorted camouflage patterns. Originally the camouflage patterns were all produced in the time consuming manual screen printing until the development of the machine roller printing in 1940."Hope that helps.
Nice camo, and you've done a tremendous job bringing out the character of the faces.
Thanks Eanar - sure does - and saves me some painting!
Very nice painting and very nice camo!Panagiotis.
Stunning painting - flawless camo work. I was just perusing the Warlord Games site with the pending release of their halftracks and grenadiers. Made me think of pulling out my WW2 stuff for Disposable Heroes game. Best, Dean
You've got a magic touch with the brush and paint.
WOW!!! Incredible painting, I love the camouflage patters and the expressive faces... COOL!
Wonderful work as usual!Great camo!Christopher
That is superb! Fantastic job on the cammo.
Awesome painting! The camo is so good.
Warlord's miniatures have very expressive faces, so most of the job is done by them ;),Cheers

Wow! Some of the best camo painting that I have seen. Look forward to the tutorial.
Fabulous work on this early-war camo. The green scheme is particularly excellent. Also, those are nice castings - I especially like the unique early-war touches such as them utilizing captured Czech LMG.
