But I digress, here's the remaining three Tank Rider infantry for my Bolt Action Soviets. Crap pics as they were done last thing before bed yesterday and prior to a spray of dulcote, so please be assured that I will post the whole squad in a group shot in the next couple days and do a better, proper post for them. After reading the new Bolt Action 2nd Edition rules, I found that I wanted more Light Machine Guns (LMG) to support my army as a whole, but also to keep it more thematic ingame. This meant a quick re-arranging of my planned 1000 point army list and so now my previously painted Flame-Thrower team has been set aside to bump up my Tank Rider squad to 10-men and include the squad’s LMG and loader.
Once again, these are Warlord Games’ plastic Winter Soviet infantry – a very well designed kit that paints up pretty easily. [I also completed a spotter fig for my mortar team, but he’ll get previewed next post as his snow effects weren’t yet dry when I was taking pics last night]
|Lighting is a little harsh but you get the idea. Funny how pics like this help you realise you'd completely missed an otherwise VERY prominent mold line - will take care of that! (Chap on the left sporting the MP40)|
|Added lots of bits to these guys. MP40 bloke got a mag-pouch for his new favourite toy, LMG trooper in the middle a backup pistol firearm and the LMG loader on the right an ammo pouch for the LMG.|
The 6MMRPC challenge that I'd joined to help lessen my mountain of unpainted stuff and pledge to not buy new models has started again for it's 3rd iteration (I think?), though this time only for 3 months so the challenge won't interfere with the end of year Xmas celebrations, etc. Perhaps that will get me painting again? Roll on the 3MMRPC!
