From IainW: More 28mm soviets (95 points)
Here are the latest batch of soviets, I keep thinking I'll finish more this week and then life gets in the way but at least I've finished some!
So 14 28mm infantry men a lend lease bren gun carrier with two crew and two passengers. I made a right mess of assembling the bren gun carrier. It was my first plastic vehicle in about 35 years I had to stick an additional piece of plastic to cover up a gap that shouldn't have been there. Still I think it's good enough although looking at it now I could do with maybe adding a tiny bit of snow on the carrier, not now though!
Mostly PSC, some with warlord heads and a couple of warlord plastics.
I think that adds up to 100 points, with a bit of luck and a fair wind I should make 1000 points by challenge end.
All the best Iain
Great work, Iain, and wonderful to see your Soviet juggernaut steamrollering onwards towards the finishing line. These are wonderful additions to your force, and I particularly like the small, but perfectly modeled, Lend-Lease Bren carrier. Like all hire vehicles, it's been well used, is fully-occupied and no doubt will be going into all kinds of terrain as none of the drivers will be concerned about paint scratches. It's a great model, and I know from experience that it's the kind of vehicle on the wargames table that players will love on their side. It might not have the 'punch' of a JS-III, but it has charm by the samovar-full. Great work, Comrade!
As for points, 14 infantry (70 points), that lovely Bren carrier (15 points) and the 4 chaps in the Bren carrier (half points, so 10 points) all add to a total of 95 points. Great work, and another fine points total in the bag towards the big-1000. Well done indeed!
