Painting the Hitlerjugend Platoon
Basecoat the uniform with a mix of Luftwaffe Uniform and Black.
Wash liberally with Manstein Shade to produce shading and definition.
Highlight edges and raised areas with pure Luftwaffe Blue.
Paint the white stripe about one-third the width of the band, with a wider patch for the insignia. Don’t try to paint a tiny swastika - a small blob of Panzer Grey or Black will suffice.
Aaron based the Hitlerjugend Platoon to match the theme of street fighting in Berlin.
