Interesting read. Nice job on the HMMWVs.

I will be interested in seeing the new vehicle and the turrets.

I bought some of those new Spetsnaz too (the belt fed PKM would be great for my Separatists). Though their faces look cold. Could do with some of those Russian standard face masks that they're always wearing. ;)

I'll admit, some covered face would be nice. On the other hand, my guys are going to be mainly deployed to the Southern Arabian Peninsula and East Africa so obviously they are working on their tans :v

Explains why they're also all wearing sunglasses. Not sure if a little Rayban logo is possible at this scale though.

With the skill level of miniature painters on this forum, I wouldn't be surprised!

Surprise Wednesday post! I'm taking a quick look at the version 2 stowage options from Spectre Miniatures

I can agree that the transition to individual packs is for the better, despite the increase in the prices. The resin not so much, as from the set that I bought the pieces seem to have similar issues, if minor in comparison, to the Humvee. Specifically the bubbles that you mentioned, some minor mould slips, and on one of the crates a pretty substantial bubble that will need to be filled.

The small cooler came with that set that I ordered as well. A pity that all the launchers are Western, rather than some Soviet ones, but hopefully they'll release a dedicated Russian themed one in future for those states where there's a mix of launchers in service.

Interesting. How do the Javelins compare to the Empress ones?

Not sure about the multiblock jerry cans. Sometimes you do want them like that, othertimes you want multiple cans.

I hope the sand boards turn up soon.

Considering that Die Waffenkammer's stowage set already includes loads of Jerry Cans, another manufacturer making sets isn't too bad. As you wind up finding opportunities to stick them together eventually anyway. Rubicon also do something similar with their sets - having them both individual and in rows. I guess it makes keeping them neat easier. The handles on the Spectre set are nicer than the Die Waffenkammer ones though - more clarity to the gap in the handle.

As for the Javelins, the Spectre ones are a bit bigger. Grabbed a photo for you compared to the Javelin from the British support weapons. I wouldn't mix them in the same pile/on the same model but you could use them as an alternative
