Hello,

Please find some detailed pictures of one a fallschirmjager from Alpine pair. The figure is part of a vignette I made for the normandy HF campaign.
I've read Jaume Ortiz book on how to paint fallschirmjager from Osprey, and the tips there are really usefull.
Alpine's figures are really a pleasure to paint !
Comments and tips to improve my technic more than welcome
Best

Julien,

Nice work, that cammo came out great and I like the worn webbing in the first shot.

Hi Andy,

I had a lot of fun in painting this "soft hedge" camo.
Several layers of very diluted paint are required.
As for webbing, it's small touch of oil painting that allows me to reproduce this very worn look of leather.

Best,
Julien
