From TamsinP - 28mm WW2 Soviet Women (40 points)
I bought these a couple of years ago from Annie at one of the shows (Colours I think), but they have languished in the lead pile since then. I thought that now was as good a time as any to get them painted, to give me some more early points before I head out of London for Christmas. Besides, I was able to paint these alongside my entry for the first bonus theme round - two entries from one painting project = win-win!
These are 28mm figures from Bad Squiddo Games. I have previously painted some of the infantry, and these figures showed some of the same problems with the faces. I don't know if it's a problem with the sculpting or with the casting. At least these didn't have the distortion issue that I'd seen with some of the infantry.
For scoring I'd suggest counting the Maxim and mortar as 28mm foot rather than crew served weapons as they aren't big. That should give me 40 points.
Lovely, clean work on these female Soviet support teams, Tamsin. I can't see the issues with the faces, but that may be that your deft brushwork took care of them. I also like the subtle shading on their uniforms - very nice.
40 points it is. Have a great break from The Smoke and we'll see you back in a few days - Happy Christmas Tamsin!
