These guys represent the culmination of my Desperate Measures Tankovy list, which I started at the beginning of this year for the Corrivalry tournament. Yes, it really does take me this long to paint an army.
I promise there's a driver in there, which I painted up really nicely, but you can't seem him...he could be all flat brown for anyone will ever know...sigh :)
The guns are portee, so you can dismount them at any time. I've left these till last as I painted the dismounted variant a while ago so there was no rush for them.
I've not used the mounted variety in game before, however I know I let them get killed way too often way too easily. They are an easy VP for my opponent so I have to be more careful. I'm not 100% sure if they suffer Hen and Chicks or not. I've chatted it through with Ben and Hammy rules as written it appears they do. TBH that just feels wrong but I can't dispute it...the AA gun is a machine gun, but it doesn't follow standard mg rules i.e. it's rof 4 not 3. That's a pain in the bum for sure, so in a way it's more effective using them dismounted as they are just as survivable with a 5+ save or more survivable with 3+ if gtg.
I enjoyed painting the trucks though, they are a cool looking model and I'm sure will see the light of day should I need to move my AA guns from A to B.
Thanks for looking...that's all my Soviet stuff painted and that feels great (until I buy more of course)
