Here are pictures of the two 12 man sub machine gun squads with supporting light machine gun teams.
In addition to the Russians this week I was able to move on to some early war Germans. All the figures are from Wargames Foundry. I love these figure they are a joy to paint. Its really great to see 20 year or more old sculpts hold up so well. Great detail, clean casting and a good variety of poses. Whats not to like, oh yeah the cost. But in my opinion you do get what you pay for with these Foundry figures.
Here are the squads grouped in twos. The first two pictures are four rifle squads. I was tempted to paint helmet markings but decided against it since I am planning to use these guys for 1942-1943
The last picture is the full group picture including the German Platoon commander and his aid.
I was able to finish 93-28mm figures this week. It was a very focused painting week and I doubt very much it happens again. I am toward the end of my World War II figures on hand. I have an order, placed in early January, to Black Tree for more Americans but haven't heard anything from them since my order early last month. I doubt very much I see them in time so its on to something new for next week.
Hoi Eric, gosh 93 figures in a week that's very good indeed! Nice to see yet another Tuesday crewmember finish an army, your Russians look great. I like the way you've based them a lot. Not only do the bases look good, they are practical and also show the type of miniature upon it. You've done the German up a treat as well, the Feldgrau really came out perfectly fine. You've also gone for a decent mix of weapons as far as I can see and these will surely avail of themselves well on the tabletop. In all: a great entry and I am looking forward to what you come up with next week! Cheers Sander
