Modelling and Painting World War II German Military Figures (Crowood Wargaming Guides) (Paperback)
The step-by-step building and painting guides in this book illustrate figures in scales from 1/150 to 1/32, which equates to wargame figures sizes from 10mm to 54mm. There are painting recipes featured for twenty-five uniforms covering the main branches of the Wehrmacht. These are Afrika Korps; Fallschirmjager (parachutists); Feldgendarmerie (military police); Gebirgsjager (mountain troops); Heer (army); Panzer (tank crews); Waffen SS, and U-boat crew. Modelling and Painting World War II German Military Figures covers preparation and assembly of white metal and plastic figures in detail, and tutorials include techniques for building a wargames army quickly.
Michael Farnworth is a painter and modeller who has written many painting guides for small wargame companies. He is also a production engineer and has worked on military apparel and backpacks. Modelling and Painting World War II German Military Figures brings together his love of history with the methodology of an engineer to explain techniques in easy-to-understand steps.
