Here are another pair of Soviet infantrymen, ready to join the surge into Poland. Am loving these greatcoat sculpts as they are so easy and fast to paint. The fellow on the left is Dead-Eye Dmitriy - the cold stare of death that somehow got painted makes him look like business indeed as he aims for another killshot. Bloke on the right I'm thinking is more of a bully-type as not only does he have mittens and booties, but he's also got a 2nd pair of mittens that I'm assuming he muscled away from some greener recruit. Why? Who knows - incase the 1st pair gets a hole or need to be used in lieu of loo paper? Attempted a very crude scrawl on the Panzerfaust label to show firing instructions - looks a bit pants, but o well.
|Again, snow basing to come once I've got the remainder of the squad painted.|
|Obligatory rear view. Didn't realise until seeing this pic that the arm joints are so prominent. Ah well, just want them painted up and ready to play with - perhaps revisit with greenstuff at a later date.|
Unlikely to be an update until next week as I'm off to Seattle on Wednesday for a friend's 42nd birthday. Ciao!
