WIP – Forged in Battle’s Deutsche Afrika Korps

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).

DAK forged in battleTo 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.

    Very, very nice! Just one small remark; the red-white ‘sticks’ are normally the color of the gun itself as they were the cleaning rods. Artillery guns like the LeFH18, had measuring rods in red-white. PAKs had either wooden cleaning rods or dunkelgelb/panzergrau cleaning rods.
