Several more figures being put together.
Pin vise I use to drill holes in the bottom of the figures so that I may install pins. This allows me to affix them to a custom made balsa wood base so I can handle the figures without having to touch them.
As you can see it is quite easy to paint the figure in this manner. Here I am placing the base coats of flesh on. I will follow up with more detail on the colors and shading that I will do. The face is everything and I still need more practice at this.
I usually try and paint my figures in painting order. Meaning I will do so many in one color and while those dry move on to others and paint a different color on those so I am not waiting around. I usually do them in groups of four. Here I am putting on the base coats for the uniforms. You may wonder at the brown coats and the tan pants, but this is just the beginning of a long process of painting camo. The Fallschirmjager at this time still had a mix bag of uniforms because of the Campaign in Africa/Tunis. Not all will be done this way but it makes a nice mix.
