Battle of the Hürtgen Forest - 82nd Airborne Division #1

Today for something different. At least scale wise... some of you may have already seen I had done a hand full 15mm U.S. Paratroopers quite some time ago. Now while I had my recent clean out I stumbled over them again and as nobody seemed willing to buy them I gave the rest of them a go.

Rush for Berlin 18: Further Russian Reinforcements

After obviously having rediscovered my painting Mojo and especially my love for Russian soldiers in WW2 I had a crack on some more of these buggers. All of the figures are from Warlord Games again and definitely are some of their better newish sculpts. For the most part I dislike the comic style some or better most of their newer figures, for example the Waffen-SS or German Heer, have to them. Especially most of their "Separate Head System" often look more like some ugly grimaces than real faces. Same with the heads for their "Siberian Veterans" plastics box. Somehow they seem to imagine all Siberians beeing slant eyed maniacs.... *rant off*

The Great War Project No.6: The Great War Painting Club figure

As some of you will probably know there's a "Great War Painting Club" thing going on at the Lead Adventure Forum right at the moment. So in order to take part I grabbed me one of those Russian Stormtroopers from Brigade Games sitting on my shelf and waiting patiently to see some paint.
