Elhiem Modern Russians

Since my last post I have been concentrating on Matt's Modern Russians, and decided to do the lot before posting, so this is a little pic heavy I'm afraid.

I found these figures particularly enjoyable to paint, with a wealth of detail (in common with all Elhiem figures), and attempted a 'Flora Digital' pattern which did not really come off, but I'm still relatively happy with the final appearance.

So, RUS01






The Spetsnaz in GORKA suits were a pattern I found on the net, but I have seen a number of different ones. I am well aware that many details/colours may be inaccurate, but I'm not going to be too precious about it- life's too short!

I also managed a couple of pieces of scatter terrain while I was at it, the first cobbled together from a mixed bag of mis-cast items from 'SGT'S MESS' (a brilliant bag of stuff for this sort of thing)-

and at your convenience (sorry), a, er, convenience, also from SGT'S MESS.

So, I've got lots in the pipeline- mostly from Elhiem- Aussie SASR, US Rangers post 2010 and others.
I have knocked out a few more Taliban, and some Liberation minis recently, but there are enough pictures here for one post I think.

As usual, any helpful comments welcome, and thanks for taking an interest.

    3. Third time lucky without predictive text snafu - Thankee kindly young Jay !!

  3. They look fantastic. Are you painting them to use for any particular rule set?

  4. Thanks Ben! I have several rule sets, but my favourite at the moment is Force On Force. Games are few and far between at the moment. Because I have changed to 20mm from 15, I have terrain and other projects to make before I have any games, but the painting and modelling is just as enjoyable for me. Thanks for taking an interest and commenting (kindly!).
