Little bit of something else - Zvezda's WW1 Russians.



WW2-wise, I've painted a lot of things that needs to be documented. A British platoon with SHQ and Frontline figures, plus some Britannia heavy weapons (that will be sold off, due to the rather noticable difference), a Cromwell CS, 48 Winter War Russians, a T-28, almost done two BT-7s, and a full platoon of German Panzergrenadiers from SHQ - a bunch of figures that have been lying around for around a year, I almost sold them off twice, but kept them, and with the arrival of a lot of similarly sized Brits, I kept them, and I'm really happy that I did, as they are really nice figures.

So stay tuned, maybe I'll manage to photograph them soon enough...

A humble Humber Scout car. I don't know who made the base model, I got it assembled and undercoated (bit too thickly), and I added a Bren mount from SgtsMess. I only noticed now that I fucked up the wash a bit, but eh, it happens. Maybe I'll remedy it on another model in case someone does it in plastic.

Thanks! :)  Let's start with the primer - I'm not sure if I airbrushed some watered down Vallejo Black Primer, or used Evolution Pinty Plus black spray, but both works really nicely. The uniform is Middlestone, the belts, ammo pouches, satchel is Vallejo Flat Earth, greatcoat is Cold Grey+some white, the end of if on the side is hull red, puttees are again Flat Earth, and I think that's it. Possibly not 100% correct, but Russia is a big country with lots of different suppliers...also, originally I wanted a simple paintjob, so only did base color+wash on most parts except the face, but decided to go the extra mile, and added some extra highlights. To be honest, I'm not a fan of these minis, the faces are a bit weird (somewhat bloated), but en masse they'll look good.
