I've finished the early war German paras I showed just underway in the previous post. They were stain painted over a white undercoat and then shaded with a Vallejo brown wash.
The chap on the right on a square base is one of the old batch I painted in the 1990s and to which I wanted to match these guys. I think they work together OK.
Seen in the background are a couple of hedge/fence sections I've knocked up from bits I had lying around.
I now have four feet of 20mm fence. I might need to start on some bocage soon, though.
