For my first entry into the Challenge this year I elected to go with two sets of Imperial troops for my 55 Days at Peking project, which I've been working on consistently over the the year. It's taken a lot of effort building terrain and painting up the Boxers so I'm pleased to be getting my first big game in soon.
Today's submission consists of a dozen of both German Seebatallion and Russian Marines, all from EMP Games, who I'm happy to say provided both speedy and efficient service and excellent comms. In total they're worth 120 Challenge points.
And the Russian Marines...
Now since I started something yesterday with Challenge Tunes, I figure I'd better include my playlist for these chaps! They took a while so I got through a range of music...
German miniatures deserved some German accompaniment, so this lot were knocked out to a combination of Rammstein's "Mutter" and "Reise, Reise" plus the soundtrack from Run Lola Run amongst other things (all from my own collection). Russian music of any flavour doesn't feature in my catalogue at so I fired up Spotify for a combination of Zeromancer's ""Zzyzx", Birthday Massacre's "Pins and Needles" and a couple of Cafe del Mar albums when it was getting late. As you can see I have something of an eclectic taste :-)
I also really like the look for these castings. They have a real Bob Murch 'Pulp Adventure' feel to them, especially the Russian Marines. I'm definitely going to be checking those out for myself.
Going to have to give that 'Run Lola Run' soundtrack a spin - it's been a long time since I heard that.
