When I read about it I decided to paint my Austro-Hungarians and Germans to show just how good their miniatures are. The Austro-Hungarians are painted with an Astronomican grey basecoat, followed by my traditional wash, this time Asurman blue, and then drybrushed with Space Wolf Grey. I like the pose of the Austro-Hungarian Officer as well as his mustasch, which I find to look very much like Emperor Franz Josephs.
I can't remember whether or not i basecoated the Germans in Adeptus Battlegrey of Astronomican grey, but I think it was Battlegrey. They were then washed with Badab black and given a Codex grey drybrush to finish them off. All the minis have been given a gloss varnish coat and waiting for their matt varnish when i photographed them.
