Thread: German Fallschirmjäger uniform colours?
27/02/2017 21:43:48
Luftwaffe field division uniforms were indeed blue grey and the fallschirmjager wore the blue grey tunics under the jump smock. The trousers were specifically designed for them and were only in field grey. (Ignoring the tropical uniform which is a whole other issue) Ron Volstad's artwork in the Osprey book is incorrect, he admitted this himself. Whatever works though.

Many thanks mate, these are indeed 1/35 Dragon figures. About time I did an update on my painting.

The Kurtz book is good but has been recently superseded by the Karl Veltze books, quite pricey but well worth the money in my view.

Karl Veltze books, third volume coming soon.

I've also heard good things about the new Military Mode Fallschirmjager book but I haven't got my copy yet, I would however echo Sjors' comments, Jaume's book is excellent and great value.

The Fallschirmjager never wore blue trousers BTW, they were field grey.

Hi Jim,

Unfortunately I don't know of a UK supplier, a friend of mine got me one from Germany. However, I do believe that Black Dog now have their own webshop **LINK** may be cheaper to order direct?

With all this advertising you would have thought they would send me one, eh ? wink 2

Glad you liked the article, many thanks !

Thread: Namfest 2016 - Us Jungle Recon in 120mm
05/03/2016 08:24:43

Hi Peter,

For shading and highlighting I pretty much did exactly what Dirk described, thus. I painted the base colour then outlined all of the seams with olive drab. Then all of the camo, no pre-shade or highlight - try and break the pattern at the seam lines, it adds more interest. The whole thing was given a very dilute filter - almost to the point of tinted water - of US Olive Drab, this blends the camo tones together somewhat. This mix is then used to build up the shadows in the creases, etc. It does take several layers, if you can see it going on in the first pass your paint isn't thinned enough, eventually you will start to see the defnition. Not going to lie to you, this is very time consuming !

Because this process darkens down the overall pattern I then use the original camo colours to highlight, then start adding a lighter colour to them (depends on the colour but usually something like sunny skintone), highlighting each individual colour. Last step is outlining and final highlights on pockets, etc.

Hope this helps a little, best of luck

Great - look forward to seeing how you get on smiley

Hi Peter, great figure painting ! I have been watching your progress on several projects and I really like your painting style and the speed you produce the finished article astounds me !!

However, I must disagree with your OD comments, this figure is crying out to be tiger stripe. I did it recently on a 35th scale figure and although (as you say) it is time consuming, I found it one off the easier camo patterns to paint.

Here is a link to my version **LINK** I found that if you paint the base colour first - Stone Grey - then the Black Grey stripes, it is easy to fill in the gaps with the intermediate green rather than doing the lighter outline last.

Anyway, keep up the good work !

Andy

Dirk, this is looking great and I'm glad the outlining tip is helpful Hope you don't mind me hijacking this by posting a link to my blog, the SBS I did on scribing is here **LINK** , I hope it is ueseful. Bill, if you use a curved blade and gently scrape the swirl lines you can get rid of them. It is something to do with the plastic cooling too quickly in the mould.

Can't wait to see more of this project my friend, giving me an urge to get painting pea dot too !

Stunning job so far Dirk, glad to see this one back on the bench smiley
