I base coated them in a dark grey generic spray can from Walmart. I used a trashy brush to spread it around in patterns and patches and then pressed the dead grass into it and set it aside.
I started by mounting all the figures on lollipop sticks, there was around Mostly the brown grey and flesh tones, those just took a long time. I mean look at it.
I really like the sculpts, and the finished infantry bases are really cool. I might never use Panzergrenafier Earthshade again, which can be very hard at times.

This was another stage that took a while because you want to be careful not to mess up your work, and some of the faces in shooting positions have small gaps to access with the paint brush. Take your time on this step. It came with everything you need to field two decently sized armies and the necessary tokens and even some cardboard terrain pieces.

This step took a little more time because of the detail work, but I used a sizable brush and tried to go as quickly as possible. I chose that simply because I had it on hand it came free wwr some minis I purchased!
