20mm PSC Painted WW2 Soviet Infantry Squad.

While I'm nearly finished the Operation Sealion forces I had a go at painting some of my Soviet forces which I have been hoarding for a while, nearly have a platoon done, I followed the painting instructions on the box from PSC but I'm not happy with the colour, the figures or my paintjob/choice of colour but I suppose I'm not called the Happy Lurker for a reason and they were as the budgie goes cheap!

The British Military Tournament was very good even if I was sitting in the Gods (well nearly!) and will post pictures..

Lots more Soviets to come.......

  1. They look pretty good, how were you hoping they would turn out?

    Looking forward to seeing some of these 20mm WWII figs in action someday. :)

    Cheers,

  3. They look good. Perhaps the highlight came out lighter than you wanted, but I wouldn't kick them off the table for that.

  4. I like them Fran!
    A bit ''brown'' perhaps, but we are talking about an army that had millions of soldiers (and different uniforms considering the factories that produced them..)

  5. Well Happy, I think they look just fine. I can't wait for you guys to play Operation Sealion so I can see how that turns out in an alternate timeline

  8. Nicely done! I like the color choice and the paint jobs. I wish you weren't across the pond, we could combine our Russians to take on a sizable Kampfgruppe

  12. Those look perfectly ok to moi.
    I really like the animation and poses of the PSC stuff just a pity they are true 15mm and so smaller than all the other metal ranges. Their vehicles are also excellent

  17. Glad you had fun at the tournament. I agree they look a little off, but I'm not that huge on WW2 trivia, I'm not too sure how the Sovs are supposed to look.

  18. They look great as always. Meanwhile, I'm still waiting for the typical 'in Soviet Russia, miniature paints you' gag to show up.

  19. These are very nicely painted figures, Fran.

  20. Really great! I've been thinking of collecting some 20mm WWII stuff because it's cheap and readily available and I recently purchased Kampfgruppe Normandy which is designed for that scale.

  28. Nice job! I especially like the screaming submachinegunner.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I like them. Too often we are our own worst critic. They'll look good following some T-28's into action.
