I've been in a serious painting rut recently but I think it isn't 'me', it's the models... Caliver books finally delivered the back-ordered Soviet Rifle squad (Westwind) that I've been waiting for since I got my Warlord ruined farm houses.
I got the whole lot, plus the Flag-Bearer that came with the new Soviet book, done in less than a week. So I obviously just enjoy painting WW2 Soviets! Hmm, I need to figure out what else would have that effect, maybe Sci-Fi figs? Infinity does look kinda cool. Anyway, here they are. Can anyone spot the Flamethrower?
How about now? The Soviets liked to disguise their man-packed versions with a 'gun' that made the bearer look quite a lot like a rifleman... until you see he's carrying fuel tanks on his back. I've got a multi-player game on this after-noon. Somehow I am teamed up with a Japanese platoon vs ze Germans and Hungarians. Makes complete sense.
