I always do a few of my Sniper Reminders every challenge but this one is a gift for a mate who I thought of when I picked up the figure two years ago. Good job it's not meant as a gift for any reason other than because he will like it!!
The pavement is a few bits of Linka stone wall that I cut out a base sized hole and filled in part. I often try to use Linka and keep some cast wall sections in hand. The poster is taken from a Pro-German image on the internet that I feel this patriot has ripped off the wall.
I started this figure a few times but took here back to the start as I just did not like the coat colour and then in the end threw sense out the window and dressed her in red, I doubt she will see the end of the war! She is an Artizan WWII Russian partizan but I saw her in France rather than Russia.
In the packs you get a mix of useful figures and the odd one that does not work for me. The guy with the wound is great, the one with the flagon of ale, er not so.
I have agreed to paint up a lot of British 6mm Naps and as part of the payment is some of the Stick on shield decals that I read about with mounting horror in a recent challenge post. Given that I have seventy two of these things I was more than a little worried I would end up throwing them. Well I tried them and have fortunately been a lot more lucky with them. Out of all the decals I added only one failed. So I have a good supply of sticky decals and the water transfers, I will still hand paint plenty though.
