I've been looking forward to getting on with this platoon for a long time now (since BA2 in February). However it's been really hard getting my hands on all the constituent parts. In fact I'm still missing a blister pack of Mounted Razvedki Crew, but I'm fed up of waiting.
I love these fellas, the 50 cals mean you have a chance of digging out infantry. The flamethrower gives you the opportunity to pin before you assault (providing you hit of course)
I'm going to kick things off with the scout cars...
My Razvedki finally arrived today, after 4 months, 5 drivers and 5 50cals, which are the important bits...unlike the second hand bunch you can see in the above photo, which has 2 drivers and 4 50cals...last time I buy anything second hand.
Scout cars done, these were pretty fun to paint and as it's a flat colour I feel happy to go for it with the weathering effects. I find Battlefront decals nearly always fall apart, which you can see on the star below, but it looks kinda cool anyway. also Vallejo Decal medium...what a pile of crap. I keep meaning to throw it away and buy some MicroSol but always forget.
|As this is the car my commander will be driving about in, I've put an extra star on the back.|
A week later and they're done
Another week later...
I started to rush towards the end there, partly due to boredom, partly because I wanted them finished today (today being the day before Adam's wedding) and mostly because an entire Great War British army landed on my painting desk and I want to get cracking.
I need to return to these fellas at some point...I'd like a bit of baggae on the sides of the cars, some rope around the front bumper? and the decal really need sorting out...hopefullt some microsol will help.
Thanks for reading, it's relief to finally get this platoon done.
