WWII 120m Jeff Shiu Germans

    Hi All

    These are a couple of 120mm Jeff Shiu figures that I am near completion for one of my German collectors. There is no weathering on the figures atm. Few small bits to finish. Coming to an end of the run of WWII figures and looking forward to moving onto something else.

    Figures are cast in resin, 120mm scale and painted in Scale 75, Vallejo and reaper acrylics.

    Sorry for the poor pictures, just never seem to get it right!

    Hi Mark

    Yer that pattern was a real pain in the ass to paint. I used the Calvin Tan book as a reference. Just need to take your time, break it down and deal with one section at a time.
    I painted the base colour in Vallejo German Beige then added sepia and black to the base for deep shadows, add black and dark brown dots. The lighter land masses were sunny skin tone with a dab of German camo black brown and the dots then applied same colour as base. Darker land masses are Vallejo German Black brown with German reflective green dots. smaller green areas are reflective green with a touch of field grey and light brown and black dots. The entire jacket then receives a couple of light washes of sepia ink before all the details and seam lines are highlighted.
    I know its all a bit confusing and very time consuming but just remember to work on one section of a time.
    Hope all my confusing rambling helps!
