|Some random 20mm WW2 Soviets.|
As with the random 15mm Germans I posted earlier in the month, these models were all sitting in a big pile in a box (see photo), a thing that passes for "organization" when it comes to my hobby hoard. I was probably "just about to paint" these back in 2015 or 2016 or something, but then tossed them suddenly away as my squirrel-like attention span was swept up into some other project.
|Part of my WW2 "Pile Of Shame" - a mix of 15mm and 20mm figures and vehicles. I'm trying to clear up at least SOME of this backlog!|
|A BA-64 armoured car (from SHQ) and a messenger (from PSC).|
|The Russian uniform came out a bit too dark, but I was happy with the green on the armoured car.|
I was trying to figure out the mix of colours I had previously used for the Russian khaki...this came out too dark. I think I have the right colours, but not the right mix. I'll need to keep experimenting - and write it down after I get it right!!!
|T-34/85s from PSC - prepared to crush the fascists!|
|I rough my tanks up a lot...maybe too much, but I like the battle-worn look. It seems right for the Eastern Front!|
And hey, paint them and muck'em up, and they're good to go!
As a bonus, these models come with two turrets, so you can use them for the earlier, more classic T-34/76 variant. I have not painted the 76mm turrets yet, as my interests are much more late war than mid-war for now.
