Plastic Soldier Company 1/72nd Russian Infantry

Just finished the first batch of PSC Russian Infantry for use with THW's Nuts! skirmish rules. I actually bought them at Salute, but only got round to painting the first 10 (pathetic turnaround, I know) as I am so slow.



Have to say, I really like them; they are, like other PSC stuff, essentially the same figures (pose-wise) as their German and British counterparts; in a good way, though.


All my games are small-scale affairs and the plan is that this will be no exception, utilising some flattened, mashed-up urban terrain, which I'm knocking-up at the moment and should allow me to get round the lack of table space, while hopefully still keeping it in a typically chaotic,  Eastern Front setting...hmm...we'll see...


With that in mind, I tried to go for a 'Cross of Iron' look with these chaps, like the one I attempted with their German opponents. 








That ends my slightly pretentious update, I will get round to a few more bits 'n' pieces soon I'm sure...


All the best for now,


Monty

  5. Really nicely done Monty, I especially like the way you've brought out their faces. Is that just a wash, or a wash with an additional highlight?

    Nick, they are washed and highlighted/dry brushed before being soft tone dipped and matt varnised.

  12. Many thanks chaps, very generous again ;)
    Lurker, I used Vallejo Tan Yellow as per the box instructions and which looked far too bright initially, but okay once washed and brush-dipped with soft tone...
