I recently finished a couple things. I finished my Stuka's. They took forever. They were originally for my EW German army but got sidelined. After V3 came out I decided to finish them. I did one with bombs and 2 with cannon. I'm giving one cannon plane to my father in law who is a big aviation buff.

Having the panel lines show up was a fail for me. I had so many issues with these I just said "good enough".

I also did some US infantry teams that can be used for either a US Tank/Mech recon platoon or a US rifle company I&R platoon.

I'm moving on to my M10 section next.

That's really nice work!
I like the infantry basing. And the planes look very detailed!

These look great. Reminds me that I really need to get my Stuka's painted.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments. I've never considered myself more than a careful painter.

For basing I wanted them to look like they were cautiously moving (sneaking) through bushes or maybe even the bocage. I decided not to use any static grass on them. It's woodland scenic 50/50 blended turf/burnt grass, light green and burnt grass clump foliage, mininatur short buffalo grass tufts spring, on a base of vallejo pumice painted tan earth, washed with black shade, drybrushed tan earth followed by german camo pale brown. I glue and pumice my dudes before priming.

The shading is Citadel devlan mud. I drybrush highlight the pants with tan earth before washing then go back and drybrush them with tan earth followed by german camo pale brown. I drybrush the coats back up with khaki and hit (paint) all the high spots on the straps and packs with grey green again. I use saddle brown in place of red leather (too red).

I picked up some Ogryn Flesh for a skin wash that a friend recommended which i'll try on the next batch.

I plan to use the Stuka's a lot. First because I don't have a ton of German stuff yet and second I think it's a decent enough value for ~100 points to get a template and a chance to air intercept (I have no AA models).

I have just discovered using a 0.05mm Micron pen for doing panels.....still experimenting with it , but results are promising and it is pretty quick and easy to use for panels. Doesn't beat a pin wash for rivets, but for panel lines I think I am sold. Might want to look at that too for Those pesky panel lines that won't take a wash. Going to try it out on an extra Typhon I have and see if works, might help the Stuka issue you mentioned too.

It works alright but it leaves the skin quite red. I've used it on some of my stuff but I always go back with the base color to clean up a bit.
