S'More Little Soldiers...

Hey All!

Just a teaser with some pic of the squads and terrain I have been working on for Salute 2013..

I will be using this Hauptmann for a -2 PHQ. He is pretty good sculpt and has good face and hand detail.

I really like the way he turned out especially like the color of his uniform.

Fleshing out my Soviets with a few more squads. Pretty bland basing...just want them done so didn't add any bricks and the like...

...pretty much ready to move on to painting up something new. I'd like to do up some LW Canadians and SS next.


A bit of scratchbuilding on the DP gunners. Changed the head on one to a Pilotka and new legs on the crouching fellow. Head swapped a Finn (standing firing) to fight for the Ruskies as the rifle and uniform are close; just a bit of carving to the equipment. I find the extra effort spent in giving your minis originality quite rewarding although it tends to get overlooked on the game table.

  2. These look awesome. I really like the tones that you put into the jacket and pants. Your Russians look so unique and full of character.

  3. Great job! I really like how sandy you have made the bases look. I also really like how bright your colours and highlights are. It really makes the models pop. That german officer is so detailed; he looks 28mm not 15mm scale!
