Work in Progress – Russians

I decided that I needed to catch up on some of the half (quarter, eighth, sixteenth …) finished work in the man cave. Looking for something quick and easy but something I could try some new techniques on as well, I decided to go back to the 6mm World War 2 Russians.

Back on 27 August 2012 I finished the first batch of tanks for the Russians, a battalion of Lend Lease Valentines. I decided to do some more Russian vehicles and try some weathering effects on them with two of Tamiya’s Tank Weathering shades.

I also decided to do a base of infantry – just to see that needed to be painted and what could be left.

The pictures here are the vehicles I have finished so far. I have a battalion of T34/76s almost ready for basing and that will take care of the Soviet armour for this project – well except for the addition of some T34/85s so I can build the force for late war as well.

The image on the left are some KV-1s finished, the image on the right is a command group next to a particularly tall tree and below we have a BA-10 Armoured Car.

    Nice work — the tanks are very nice, and the infantry came out looking great as well! What manufacturer are these from, and what rules system do you plan to use them with?

      The tanks are GHQ and the infantry Adler

      When the T34/76 appear probably over the weekend, they’ll be CinC

    Nice work Thomo, are those Adler infantry? I did a huge spring clean of the man-cave and sorted out all the 6mm WW2 by nation. I figure that I can quite quickly finish them all. And many of them are already 50-75% done.

      Yep, Adler

      I like the Adler infantry. I also have some GHQ infantry around somewhere but not in this bunch
