This post continues the epic saga of salvaging a botched up and trashed SS-company and turning it into a nice and playable Flames of War force.
This time I decided to tackle one of the infantry platoons, as they are the backbone of a whole bunch of FoW armies. The methods used here are pretty much the same as in my previous post of the same topic found here: https://achtungpainter.com/2015/03/14/salvage-operation/
The problems encountered with this platoon were similar to the ones discussed in the first part of this saga: boring miniature placing, poor cleaning, completely wrong uniform color etc. Therefore the solutions were similar, too. Bright colors, a heavy wash with GW’s Agrax Nightshade, Silflor tufts and home made trees.
I really like this project! No stress, nice colors, new tricks. To be continued!
