|Russian tanks and tank riders in 20mm - models from PSC, figures from PSC and Elhiem|
|The 1/72 scale tank kits from PSC are marvellous|
|Tank commander visible in the hatch to mark the platoon commander|

|SMG-toting Lieutenant on a hexagonal base|
Of course, a fumbler like me prefers one-piece track assemblies, but the fact is these are tremendous models that any normal person (i.e. any of you, anyone reading this, not me) could put these lovely PSC kits together with no trouble at all.
|A squad of tank riders - one NCO (on square base), LMG team and four troops|
|The Elhiem and PSC figures mix very well together|
|I like the PSC pose of the fellow ready to toss the grenade|
|Two spare SMG-armed troops - Elhiem sculpts|
|Russian assault engineers from Elhiem|
|Another view of the engineers|
|Another view - gave him a different-shaped base so he would stand out|
|Fellow on the left is digging up a mine, while the one on the right is ready to blast something out of the way|
|Russian WW2 scouts from Elhiem|
|Some lively colours in the camouflage body suits|
|I love this NCO figure for the scouts - a great sculpt from Elhiem|
|Interesting assortment of weapons on this group|
From Curt:Excellent work as usual Greg. The T34s look wonderfully grimy and campaign hardened while the paintwork on the infantry is crisp and their groundwork excellent. I like those Elheim poses even though, as you say, their detail can be a bit soft.
This post sees Greg meeting his initial points target of 300. Dude, seriously, why you chose such a low target for yourself is beyond me as the lowest total you've ever accumulated in any of the previous Challenges is 888 points. In the future I'll have to institute a low-ball penalty for those who meet their targets in the first half of the Challenge. Anyway, consider your next target and I'll update the roster.
