(WIP 2) Max Wünsche, 12th SS Panzer Regiment, Western Front, 1944, Young Miniatures

With the head completed, its time to tackle the main bulk of the bust. Thankfully I was able to find some pictures online with Max in Italian Camouflage. While these were not the best of photographs, they served its purpose and I was able to replicate some of the patterns on his jacket. Areas which could not been seen from the photographs were based on my imagination :)

The jacket was given a black basecoat followed by application of the base colour. The brown areas have been blocked in. I have yet to add the light green areas. Painting camouflage pattern is often time consuming and I suggest tackling the jacket by parts, especially when this is a big bust. Once the main colours are blocked in, highlighting and adding shadows to the jacket will follow.
