Calais Progress

This is the German infantry regiment that will be facing Paul's almost completed BEF around Calais in the not too distant future. The majority are Pegasus but there is also some Matchbox and Airfix in the mix as well.

Here are the command platoons from the first battalion. The Matchbox officers have had their bases removed to better match the height of the Pegasus ones.

Here are a couple of platoons that I have been experimenting with painting wise. Their uniforms have had a thin black wash applied, and their faces dry brushed rather than skin tone colour then a skin wash. Not sure which colours will eventually win out, but with time getting short I might just go for the less time consuming , we'll see.
