Due to the ongoing heat wave in this part of Europe I've barely touched a brush over the last few weeks. It was only in the early hours when temperatures outside were down to a bearable 24°C (which didn't mean the flat has cooled down as much sadly), that I got in any painting time. Instead of finishing off the afore mentioned Italians I made best use of what little time I had before the heat struck again, and finished off a second squad of Soviet Tank Riders for Chain of Command.
Figures were Warlord Games plastics again and while they're a pain to put together they painted up nicely. I'm already looking forward to give them a run out some time in the future when I'm done with the third squad. I have enough painted bits and pieces lying around from an earlier take on that theatre to be able to field a few support options too. Just some rebasing and touch ups needed I hope.
However, I'm of course eyeing a few more support options for these lads. Rubicon has released some nice sets over the last few years and I might be tempted to add a T-34/76 with attached tank riders just for the look of it.
So, that's it for this time. I hope you all enjoy the summer as best as possible!
