New Soviet "recruits"

Soooo here we go

House training and a certain amount of "breaking in" time to be sure, but the NKVD will handle the fiddly detail bits about that! (and a repaint of course)

Swap Meet Blues

So you go to the gamers swap meet with some cash in the pocket and no clue really about what you might be interested in but not having any pregenerated ideas....... and then they start cutting the prices if you "take them all".....  so 75$ and 3 deals later:

This is a picture of Most of the Mageknight figs I picked up, I had already boxed mounted figures, around 30 of them before I thought to grab the camera and shoot a picture.

Completion of 185th Gulag Shock Company

Held steady to a day of touch up and matt spray sealer to reach this point;

Regular troops to either; keep the Shock troops moving forward or herding them forward....
Press Ganged Gulag troops with various "uniforms" some of which may still have blood stains.
Special forces, Medium and light tanks, Rasputen, Bio Object 37 and Powered Assualt Armor. Still painting and detailing on these.

WWW II moving along... slowly

So, put in a dvd movie and got out the Kel Seal to fill in bases gaps last night;

Goop applied to the bases to smooth the figure to base demarcation. Painting the bases green and boots black to go with my acquired figures next.

WWWII Update

Couple games back I got to command some tanks.... light tanks.... bullet proof but not proof to much else!

These brave vehicles fell prey to 76mm shells, very large cyborg Gorillas, and I think a Giant were wolf.....

They did brew up quickly and effeicently though..

Weird World War II Force Under Construction

So, the local group is doing some WWWII, with Germans, Italians, More Germans, Belgians, Polish and well, so, Hmmm, decided to tackle some Soviets. But not your usual source, since it is WWWII. For my rank and file trooper we went to the Gulags, for better troops we drafted the guards and to keep them all in line the NKVD!  A Hulk figure will the basis for one of my "super hero" figures, along with a Doctor Strange converts to Rasputin.

So, 4 squads of 10 gulag press ganged fellows, tough as nails (survived this long in the gulag) but low shooting skills (of course they were not permitted guns while imprisoned) , guards will be good at melee (dishing out beatings), NKVD will be elite as they are used to shooting anyone not toeing the party line. Might add in a female gulag guard squad using she wolves with smg's and Rasputin's Pioneer Scout squad (kung foo school girls) as his elite hit squad.
