I curled up some picture wire and added it to the mud. The recently snow fall has almost covered it completely but it is there.

I did think these alternative space marines, with their German style armour would make great Elite infantry.
At first I tried the chipping fluid again, but like my attempt with the tanks, it didn't work. Then I tried the other method of painting on the chips and this seemed better. I added patches of Doombull brown here and there and also added some watered down weathering fluid. The effects were much better. Right at the end I added some tiny dots from the fine tip marker, these really worked well and we're easy to do.
Maybe I could add some WWI crosses to these armoured guys to really tie them in to the era. I do love those gas mask lenses...the highlight so far.

I used a lead pencil to edge the armour plates to give them some wear and tear.In the background is some primitive armour from Pig Iron.
