From IainW: 28mm soviets for the last time! (100 points)

Here is the last of my soviets, I have more to make up but for now I think I have enough for a force so I'm going to move on to my Italian wars forces and maybe some Napoleonics.






And all together , they're a mix of warlord, Black tree design and PSC. 


This should work out at 95 points and take me past 1000 points, I'm not sure if I'll be able to get anything else finished but I'll have a go! 

All the best Iain

Terrific work, Iain, and huge congratulations on cracking the 1,000 point level.  A great achievement in such a short time demonstrating fine painting skills and dedication.  Well done indeed!

And these Soviets are very much a perfect way to bring up your 1,000 points.  As we have seen before, you're a great master of the Red Army, and these fine figures are no exception. 

You've really captured the perfect shade for their uniforms, and the little touches like the snow flecks on the bases and the flashes of brighter colours such as the Commissar's brass buttons and Officer's red cap are fast becoming your trademark!

They will so just perfect on the table top, no doubt striking fear into anyone foolish enough to invade the Soviet Union in winter!

I counted 19 standing, and one prone figure, for 98 points, with a couple added for the wonderful consistency with which you've maintained quantity, quality, tone and colour throughout this Challenge.  Well done, Sir!

  2. That Commissar is a corker - exhorting the troops to advance in the name of the Motherland, or else! Great work on the Soviets, Iain, painting and basing alike!

    1. IThanks Evan, I do like the commissar, although I seem to have ended up with 3 in my small force, in need of lots of leadership!
