First off, to join Squad Sergeant Schmidt (shown in my last post), here is Schütze Dresler. Realised that the main reason I'd been avoiding these germans was due to having to work on their tricky camo patterns! Well, no more. Dresler here is sporting a pair of nifty SS issued Pea Dot camo trousers. Think i got the pattern and colours right. Regardless, he'll do for gaming.
This sculpt originally seemed like it would have been fun to paint up, but his face! Stupid bulging eyes in a poorly defined face was a nightmare to finish up and in the end i just suffered the eyes as is after 4 attempts to try to lessen the bulging effect.
As well as him, i also finished up the counterpart ruin to the one shown in my last post. Just a quick base, wash and quick drybrush highlight then snow effects added. Lighting is a bit pants, but you get the idea.
I also added snow to my deciduous trees. Just a few brown leaves to add here and there and they'll be ready for varnishing and can be called game worthy!
Did someone mention spiders? Yeah, those three are done and ready to be thrown at adventurers in my rpg sessions. Just simple layers of washes with a wee purple highlight on legs joints to make them stand out more.
Wait, "who were those fellows also on the paint desk, behind the ruin?" Glad you asked. These are the remainder of my SS squad in various stages of paint that I'm currently working on.
More on these chaps next post.
