28mm WWII German SS in Eichenlaubmuster (Oakleaf)

Here's a 28mm WWII German SS force we completed for a customer for the Bolt Action rule set. All the figure are from Warlord Games' Bolt Action line.I did these in eichenlaubmuster, or oak leaf camo. Its was a popular pattern first issued in 1941 and used until 1945 so it should fit in for a lot of scenarios.

Here's the whole force consisting of two squads, a support/assault squad, and a command team:

Here's images of the two squads:

And here's the command team:

I mixed a bit of the spring and autumn patterns of the camo, keeping the majority the spring pattern. I think it adds some nice variety to the figures. These figures were a bit rough and required a lot of clean up. They painted up well, though there is one head variant where the face is nearly featureless. Unfortunately, the cost of Warlord's pack of extra heads means each head costs about $1, or about half the cost of a figure! A bit overpriced in my opinion.
