Finally... a post here of some completed work - and I should have a few of those of the next week or so.
I said I would never paint/collect a WW2 Soviet force - not after spending so much time collecting and painting a Cold War Soviet force. Then one day I came across a platoon box of Zvezda Soviet infantry for about $15 and I was hooked... So much for my will power.
I decided I'd do a complete company of infantry and attach a few bits and peices to it. Right now I'm about a third of the way through the project so here they are thus far:
This is the whole lot - typically these 3 photos also show the one figure I forgot to photograph individually - the sniper (who is lying at an angle to the left of the Platoon Command) - and left of Ivan and Fido.
So that's my first lot of Soviets. It may take a while for the next tranch of them to make it to the top of my painting list, but I plan of completing this project over the course of the year.
