Here it is, my HUGE project and investment has come. Time is the essence here though. Im going to slowly add to a force here. Fully mechanized, hopefully.

Please dont mind the chimera, and the leman russ, they are in very early stages of paint thus far. But the Russ is converted into an exterminator.

Some more work done on the VERY beginning of the newest project...enjoy let me know what you think thus far.

I must say though that if you do have the veteran experience and modeling and painting experience, that the death korps are a great investment. Just phenomenal. I have been doing historical and 40k modeling for years, from so many companies, but these are by far the BEST miniatures i have ever had the joy of stumbling upon. They are just fantastic. Every one is a joy to paint.

Thanks man. I want the old feel of ww1, that is so cliche for the DKOK, but it represents them so well. The dark german grey from Vallejo is just great for the color of the coats, and the green makes the contrast. A lot of colors, they just all fall under the neutral, earthy range. I love these models though.

Thanks. But i do have a little problem with DKOK schemes. The guns! metal for the barrels i know. The housings however...what color. What color wouldnt look out of place? red may not cut it for these guys.

I was thinking of that, with a gray highlight. But they may fade out then also.

How about a slightly dark grey then?

Real quality work here. And it's duly given, FW models deserve awesome paint jobs!

The Dk's you have going so far are looking great, very nice color scheme. I'll be keeping an eye on the progression of this blog!

That may work. I think i may go with your idea of black though the more i think of it.
Thanks for the help, Munch your always good help around here.

How about going for a very dark greenish casing....that could work out nicely.

And if you really want to go over the top....wood which would represent your WWI theme

Wood was another idea i had, that would run well all the way to the stock of the gun, however that would be one wicked hard paint job. Here are some pics of what work has been done.

Mostly, on my phone.

Inspiring stuff. It's really interesting to see DKOK in a scheme close to what I'm using with my IG force, as I've invested in some Death Riders. I'm really behind with my painting; now I've got to raise my game! Keep on bloggin'.

I just made another order into forgeworld for two more infantry squads. Express, that way they should arrive around friday. Cant wait. Every week or two i will order a few things when i have money. Some infantry here and there. Bitz and odd things until i get a decent sized army.

I love the shades of green and brown you used for the troops; it reminds me of the stereotypical first world war stories and propaganda.

Are the tanks supposed to match the troops in colorscheme?

So i bought and put together 2 chimeras for a mechanized army. but now that i look at them. Im not sure if i like the look of them with DKOK. I may do some converting. What do you guys think? I want to maybe cut out the back hull and try something there but im not sure.

The markings of the command squad first and some of the other armor in my army.

The baneblade, standard out of box baneblade.

Then there is the WIP of my siege tank. I had a large barreled colossus type scratch-built barrel, but i didnt like it now i must start again.

And where i want to cut off the chimera. Not sure if i should just yet. Terrible renditions, but what i was thinking, in a way. Much like the FW centaur, just much cheaper to do.
