…or Steam Powered Mechanical Troops
I’ve been wanting to do these guys for a long, long time. I bought them many months ago, but struggled over how to paint them for a long time. Almost as much as I struggled over what to name them. I started a thread on TMP to get some ideas, and got some great results. I decided to combine one of the ideas with a little of mine and came up with Dampf-angetriebene mechanische Truppen= DampfmechTruppen. It’s German for Steam Powered Mechanical Troops, but with some WW2ish naming conventions.
I started with some Prussians from the Baccus Franco Prussian War range. I primed them black and just gave them all a heavy dry brush with Vallejo Brass. Then just painted the rifle as normal. I think it turned out pretty good. Let me know what you think.
