Third time I've painted these two. The recent US tank crew is upgraded with a Hornet head while there is no head upgrade for the Verlinden. This is the best Verlinden head I'm come across and just sooo right for this figure. Archer decals were used on both figures.

You were probably in my neck of the woods, Malaysia or maybe Indonesia if you have tried this dish which I presume you liked. I don't watch the calories and have it at least once a week (smile). We make them equally good at home too! Thanks so much for the all too kind positive comments but I'm no biggie. I've seen much better work from the 'big boys' and I'm many, many rungs below.

Thanks Michael. I don't use bought off the shelf colors so can't tell you what the color code on the bottle is if that's what you want to know. Burnt umber, yellow and white went into the mix. You have to fiddle around with those to get the base color and highlights. For the shadows you can darken the base color mix with either black or more of the burnt umber. I can't remember what I added for the shadow areas. It all comes togeher only when I paint.

Great looking stuff !
Nothing against your Skill , but I just don't like the Verlinden Figure. He doesn't really capture the pose from the Famous picture. Plus his hands look a tad too Big & What is up with the Ammo around his Neck ? The real Grenadier had a belt of M.G. 42 ammo .... That stuff looks like 20mm ?
You did a Great Job as always !! CHEERS !!
WHAT DO YOU CALL THE ASSASSINS THAT ACCUSE THE ASSASSIN???

That's the photo I was looking for......

A friend ribbed me about German with a pack of Luckies perhaps not realising the figure is based on an actual photo of Germans with captured items. Dragon has the Ambush at Poteau set and the ammo belt plus everything else could be more to scale. Seems like the Germans fancy US raincoats and there are similarly garbed figures in 1/16 also from other manufacturers. Thanks for the positives.
