The distinction German black leather straps and (kinky?) boots are now added or rather touched up/defined. No need to fear that the straps are slightly bigger than they need be as the future tunic highlighting stage will clean them up (see below, MG ammunition carrier):
I know the figures still look very dark and samey, but there is a subtle "greeny" to them (see below, the MG42 team running together):
The important lesson learned is to press on with everything quickly, even if a bit rough and ready, but still trying to be "tidy" without being "precise" about everything which usually stall me. Everything still seems to be a black or dark green grey, but underneath things are taking shape. A few lighter colours are coming along soon to dramatically change everything ;)
Still going to plan aka the original 2009 Painting Guide.
