These figures can double for SS in a pinch for a 2-3 foot Army with no mods and with a little disguising pass for SS in a closer distance Army. Add an SS arm cuff here and there...paint the SS runes on the collars and paint some camo... the vast majority of people will never know. There will ALWAYS be "that guy" who will point out that the SS "ACTUALLY" had......

If you file down the legs a little and make the boot look like it goes up higher or even just paint the boot so it goes higher it completes the illusion. Another option is to use Greenstuff and get your sculpting big boy pants on. Sculpting is another topic all together and one that I am pretty weak at (but always looking to improve).
The German Nebelwerfer crew that comes with the set from Battlefront is basically a early/mid war uniform with the knee high boots. For my Late War 5th SS Panzer I had to do a little disguising. The biggest thing was the boots. I took the easy road here and painted the pants a little longer, painted anklets and then the boot...on a few others I left the figure in the longer boots. I read somewhere that some Germans that had been in a while cherished their older boots....these guys are the veterans of the early campaigns ;-)
