From IainW: More 28mm WW 2 soviets (55 points)

This week has been half-term, valentines, a trip away, a 20th anniversary and a trip to Camden to see the Damned.  So no bonus round. There hasn't been that much painting going on to be honest!

I have managed to finish up a few soviets which should take me past my 750 target, which is great!  Here we have the final spotter three two man support teams and some rank and file, once more 28mm warlord and PSC.








So I think this makes 55, next week more soviets but I will be starting something from an earlier period that I hope to finish in the next four weeks. 

All the best Iain

Wow, what a week that's been, Iain!  With those scheduling challenges, I would have struggled to do anything, let alone produce these fine additions to your Soviet force.  Well done indeed, Sir!

I'm really loving the way your 28mm Soviets are coming together, with consistent coloring and basing.  I particularly like the facial expression on the SMG-toting junior leader, snarling at his men to rush forward, and threatening them with many hours of chopping beetroot if they are tardy about it.  They are going to look fantastic on the table, and hopefully have many successful days head of them repelling the evil invaders of the Motherland !

And, as there are another 55 points here to add to your total, you have now, by my tally, officially achieved your target!!  Tremendous work, and many, many congratulations, Iain!!

  1. Great works on these defenders of the motherland Iain. Great also to head that another challenger still keeps the flame burning for the musical revolution of 1976.

  3. Nice work Iain :)

    The Damned? Hey - another fan! :)
    If my hearing wasn't so fecked up I'd have been there (probably both nights) but sadly I can't risk any more damage from gigs :(

    1. Thanks Tamsin, yeah they were good, I have decided that at 50+ I'm going to leave the mosh pit to others!

    2. Was it the Koko or the Forum gig you went to? the mosh-pit can get a bit mad at Damned gigs. I used to end up in the buffer row with the guys in our crowd so that the other lasses at the front didn't get crushed - not sure if I'm up to that any more :o
