|20mm WW2 Soviets from Elhiem|
Up first are some 20mm WW2 Soviets. These are spare riflemen from a pack of Elhiem figures. As always, the sculpting can be a bit uneven, but the proportions are somehow still great, even compelling. The tricks of the sculptor...fascinating!
|More defenders of the Rodina|
|Ready to battle the fascist invaders|
|"Reporting live from 20mm game..."|
|I tried to write "PRESS" on their helmets...that didn't really work...|
|Long walk back to base...|
|Great objective for games|
|1/72 Mark IV from Plastic Soldier Company|
|I HATE modeling the schurzen plates...as you can see at the back of the turret, I can never get them to sit quite right...|
|Very basic paint job|
|Ready for action in the eastern front|

So this final entry of eight 20mm foot figures and a single 20mm vehicle should net me 44 points.
Congratulations to all of the participants. I fell short of my more ambitious revised target this year, but still managed to get a pile of stuff done. Thanks to everyone for the comments, humour and encouragement, and thanks to Curt for hosting this Challenge. See you all next time!
A great 'clean-up' indeed! I've got to try some of these Elhiem figures as they sound quite good and your results are terrific.
And it's always nice to do up some 'gaming garnish' figures for the tabletop (I quite like that pilot who's legging it furiously).
I'm definitely going to pick up some of those PSC Panzer IVs as I, like you, HATE dorking around with schurzen plating. Thanks for the tip!
I know that painting spot very well as I've parked there many a day doing some last-minute additions and touch-ups for games! A lovely spot with lots of light and, well, food and booze!
Thanks for kicking-in with us again this year Greg - your posts are always entertaining and your work is truly inspirational.
Great job Duderino!
