20mm Painted Soviet WW2 Command Base.

One of my entries for the painting challenge will be this command base from Britannia Miniatures of command motivating the troops, it usually comprises 5 figures but the other two have joined the partisans and took command of an infantry company.

I wasn't in a rush to paint this as it's really only a diorama or a bit of eye candy but the challenge means points.....

Up to 8th place out of 24......

  5. Looks great Fran. There is nothing wrong with a tasty vignette. JUst the kind of thing which adds some dazzle to a battlefield.

  6. I was going to say what Thanos said, but he beat me to it. I love this though. Particularly the guy on the telegraph. You're closing in on Ray now, don't slow down dammit. Lock yourself in a room and don't come out until you win this feckin' contest. I'll ring someone up and have them bring you food 3 times a day. I don't give a damn how much money it costs me either.

  35. Someone necessarily help to make critically posts I'd state. This is the very first time I frequented your website page and so far? I surprised with the research you made to make this particular publish extraordinary. Excellent job!
