Day of Days painting project - 6th Fallschirmjäger from Hell's Highway

I'm painting a new force for Day of Days. It's the first time I've painted a full infantry force as I usually use the pioneers I bought off John.

6th Fallschirmjäger

CiC faust/SMG & 2ic  SMG                                65 FV
3 x panzerschreck                                             75 FV
2 x stummelwerfer 8cm                                      50 FV

1 x command faust/SMG, 9 x rifle/MG squads   260 FV

1 x command faust/SMG, 9 x rifle/MG squads   260 FV

Regimental support (2nd column)
1 x command SMG, 4 x 7.5cm PaK40               230 FV 

Divisional support (3rd column)
2 x Panzer IV G, 2 x Panzer IIIL                         260 CT

Total                                                               1200 points

I've started with the PaK40 platoon.
Things I'll do differently with the next platoon.
A) Use a black undercoat. I'd run out of black and thought I'd try the FoW german armour dungelbelb.
B) Get a different matt spray coat. The one I've got is too glossy.
