Hello from Iraq

Hey guys, been reading the forums here for abit. Don't have much to do out here during my down time so I'm going to be trying my hand at some Death Korp of Krieg. Any suggestions on where to start? I thought maybe a command squad.

Paint wise should I buy each paint individualy? Or is there a set out there that works well with the earth tones so common amongst DKOK

Welcome to the forums! I have heard of a few DKoK players who use non-GW paints for exactly the reason you mention. I don't have a brand unfortunately but some of the paintsets aimed at WWII models have nice earthy tones for your Krieg, so it would be worth shopping around if you get the chance.

Perhaps another DKoK player will help you out if you post a thread in the modelling section.

Welcome,
I find enamel paint from WW2 Brands (as squeek mentioned ealier) work best to get an earthy feel. They fuck up your paintbrush though, mind.

Vallejo also makes a couple of different WW 1&2 paint sets that have a nice earthy tone as well.

Good Luck and welcome to the forum. Your always welcome here on your free time.
