This is the first book to address the subject of German Fallschirmjäger troops for the figure modeller. The major items of Fallschirmjäger uniform and equipment are covered, with an emphasis on specially designed paratrooper items. Clear step-by-step instructions allow the reader to recreate realistic figures in miniature scale with confidence and ease. Among the tutorials covered in this book are face painting, creating complex camouflage patterns, weathering clothing, and figure conversion techniques, as well as vignette and diorama settings for your figures (creating groundwork and balancing composition). The projects featured range from single-figure studies to full-scale dioramas covering all the major periods and theatres of the war.
