There is a Bolt Action tournament on the 12th at my LGS that I intend to attend hoping that my recently previewed Soviet force can win their first game and *gasp* perhaps more. (?)
A revision of my army list after my previous two games lead to the conclusion that I needed more infantry in my force. This lead to me dropping my Medium mortar (I still have the ZIS-3 gun to drop artillery bombardments.) and that my Recce option of the BA-64 Armoured Car is pants. The points freed allowed me to include my freshly painted Scout Veterans squad and add in a cheeky Commissar to help keep my Inexperienced squad motivated!
|Cool image - I'd have liked to have gotten a 2nd pack of the Tank Rider sculpts to really pack them on to the back.|
This means I'll need to paint up my Commissar mini (Easy to achieve in 11 days), but also I wanted to pimp out the army for display purposes some and slapped paint on the Tank Riders "mounted" marker I'd stuck together. They are all warlord metal sculpts aside from the greatcoat pointy fellow who is plastic. The sculpts were very characterful with nice poses (Though fine detail was often messed up with miscasts, etc I think due to old molds. They were also quite a bit smaller than their plastic counterparts, which was a little annoying.) and after a bit of fiddling about and a load of super glue (I really need to be more patient and just pin stuff!) they easily can be plonked on or removed from my T-34/85.
|Forgive the crappy hobby-room lighting.|
Once I get the Commissar painted (To be previewed in the near future.) I will consider if I have time to make a quick display board or not. Time will be a big decider on this.
|Pretty imposing I think!|
|That engines cover must be the only warm place in Poland for these blokes.|
|I've arranged the minis to look like they are hunkering down behind the turret for cover. Pointy chap is an idiot though and deserves to be sniped for poking his head up like that.|
