I chose to build a Waffen SS Panzergrenadier Platoon to oppose my US Airborne 28mm Project. I have been interested in trying difference camouflage patterns of late, and they seemed like a good fit. These guys were my last purchase for 2015 and my desire to revamp my 20mm Platoon seemed like a good impetus to get started. (It worked for the Airborne)
I plan to go a nice mix of camo patterns for this unit, perhaps a bit or artistic licence, but that is the point. For the first batch I used Warlord Games Painting Waffen-SS Plane Tree Camouflage guide, and decided on a mix of Spring and Autumn patterns.

I mixed in the odd Feldgrau Jacket and pants, and lightened them up with ash grey and glue-green to five them a washed out tone.
The pattern itself is fun to do, as it really does not come into its own until you add the final light dots on the dark patches.
I am tackling the same pattern in 20mm next, followed by the more contemporary Oak leaf pattern for the following batch.
