TDQ's Kharkov SS

Hi guys

Finished a commission for TDQ's Kharkov SS, these are some really nice figures, they are 1/72 rather than 20mm so are a good head taller than AB, and their details are finer than AB, whilst these are excellent figures, I prefer painting ABs because the detail sticks out a bit more, but they are not hard to paint, the poses are nice and everything looks correct on them, I would recommend these highly, all C&C welcome.

WIP Stalingrad Project part 3, the stars have arrived

Hi Guys

Anyone would be justified in thinking my Stalingrad project was a German one, although I will do my best on them, I have a few German forces planned so the Germans are really only an OPFOR, the Stars of this project will be Russian Marines, who I will only ever do once.
I ordered a pack of Pegasus Russian Naval Infantry and will bulk out the force with converted regular Russian infantry, the Pegasus figures are OK, but they are incorrectly depicted in unbloused square rig, the square rig was less common than the pea jacket in land operations, and the shirt is always tucked into the trousers, also the details like ammo pouches are a bit small and to fine or missing, so the conversions I will be doing are
1) Will head swap a few helmets in
2) Will convert at least half the troops to pea jackets
3) Any in square rig will have their shirts tucked in
4) will re do the ammo pouches etc
5) will add ammo bandoliers (cross belts)
6) Will untuck some of their trousers from their boots

28mm Gallipoli 2 up sets

Hi guys

I painted these a couple weeks ago, but wanted to wait until ANZAC day to post the pics, these are ANZAC Gallipoli 2UP sets available from Eureka Miniatures I did 10 sets for the customer.

Lest we forget.

28mm Warlord games SS

Hi guys

Some Warlord Games SS I have finished on commission, I have mixed feelings towards these figures, most of them are nice, proportions are good, but a couple of the poses are a bit funny, some have cartoonish faces, others are quite nice, and the one running with his rifle across his chest has the most absurd head I have seen on a 28mm figure, his helmet goes below his nose, there's no way he could see, but overall I think they are OK.
