After several months, I finally have some WWII stuff from Forged in Battle on my painting desk. The first batch is formed by several Deutsches Afrikakorps (DAK) anti-tank guns: Pak 40 (7,5cm), Pak 38 (5cm), Pak 36 (3,7cm) and IG18 (7,5cm).
To paint the guns I’ve used the Dunkelgelb set from Ammo of Mig Jimenez, but only three jars: dark base, base and highlight. I’ve tried to follow the color modulation, but not strictly. I wanted to simulate the color base (German grey), since the dark yellow was applied over it. To achieve this I used the sponge technique and dark grey. I think this chipping effect should be weak, and therefore I didn’t paint the tipical light line to get deep.
About crews, I’ve followed the PaintingWar WWII army magazine, including the following colors in the palette: green brown 879, desert yellow 977, brown violet 887 and chocolate brown 872. I have to paint four crews per gun.
