WW2 soviets 7

Here is the last of my soviets, I have more to make up but for now I think I have enough for a force so I'm going to move on to my Italian wars forces and maybe some napoleonics.

And all together , they're a mix of warlord, Black tree design and PSC. 
This should work out at 95 points and take me past 1000 points, I'm not sure if I'll be able to get anything else finished but I'll have a go! 
All the best Iain

Ww2 soviets 6

Here are my latest bunch of soviets! A T34/85 and a BT 10 armoured car, both from warlord and three lledo trucks repainted, the trucks cost 11p each so I'm happy with the price and I think they're good enough.

So that gives me 80 points I think, there's one more post of soviets left then I've got to paint some pikemen! I really like the 1930s armoured car and sorry Phil, more T34s!

Here are the latest batch of soviets, I keep thinking I'll finish more this week and then life gets in the way but at least I've finished some!

So 14 28mm infantry men a lend lease bren gun carrier with two crew and two passengers, I made a right mess of assembling the bren gun carrier, it was my first plastic vehicle in about 35 years I had to stick an additional piece of plastic to cover up a gap that shouldn't have been there, still I think it's good enough although looking at it now I could do with maybe adding a tiny bit of snow on the carrier, not now though!
 Mostly PSC, some with warlord heads and a couple of warlord plastics. 
I think that adds up to 100 points, with a bit of luck and a fair wind I should make 1000 points by challenge end.

WW2 soviets 4

This week has been half term, valentines, a trip away, a 20th anniversary and a trip to Camden to see the Damned .
 There hasn't been that much painting going on to be honest.
I have managed to finish up a few soviets which should take me past my 750 target, which is great!
Here we have the final spotter three two man support teams and some rank and file, once more 28mm warlord and PSC.

So I think this makes 55, next week more soviets but I will be starting something from an earlier period that I hope to finish in the next four weeks. 
All the best Iain

WW2 soviets 3

Here are some more WW2 soviets, just not at the last minute for a change!
First up is a junior officer,cunningly posed in what I assume is his inspiration. 

Followed by a commissar and the first flag for this army, I'll be adding a female commissar with a red flag as a tank rider, reminding me of the 1950s soviet film the commissar which is like a black and white spaghetti western, if you can imagine Clint Eastwood as a female, communist , pregnant commissar, but I digress, next up some infantry 

The first four are warlord games, in the next four the first chap is black tree design and the rest warlord games and the last four are PSC. 

Flamethrower team, warlord games. 


2"mortar team 

Ant tank gun team  (PSC bodies and warlord heads )

Black tree design maxim team with PSC maxim 

76.2mm gun /howitzer 


T34/85, I was given this tank by Lee a fellow blogger  (a figure painting therapy project ) who wouldn't even let me pay postage luckily he's also doing  an english civil war project and needed a copy of George Gush WRG rules so I was able to give him my copy as I can't see me playing it again! Unless I've mentioned it , the models are mostly warlord games. Here's they are all together .

I think that this adds up to 135 points? There are more reds on the way, I hope to finish up the rest of the soviets in the next couple of weeks and then crack on with some more renaissance figures. 
All the best Iain
