Hi All, I'm starting this thread to show the progress of a Neo-Soviet 15mm army I've been meaning to paint for quite a while .you know the feeling think thats great idea to collect but don't get around to starting them... Heres the lot that will be painted up most of the Vehicles are from Armies Army (sold to Brigade & the Scene in the UK I believe) the BTR 160s & BTR 290s are nice as there are lots of variants APC's Ambulance, recovery vehicles etc which will work well for scenarios which we hope to play. Time to get these out of Storage A lot of Vehicles Nice castings Heavy support from the QRF range Air support / transport (I think this was from the Critical Mass games collection) Infantry (AA which I think Brigade has now) Extra bits such a crew, disembarked crew, machine guns, stowage to add to vehicles Some GZG Robots to be used as mobile gun platforms So as you can see quite a big force I'll keep this thread going as I add to it over the year, I may add a couple of more items as I have no proper tanks in the force and brigade models has now reproduced its 6mm range into 15mm regards '66'
Figures by Critical Mass Games with heads from Reaper and Rebel Miniatures, plus sculpted hair. Shuttles by MegaBloks with substantial modification. Each of these characters represents someone specific in The Worlds in my Head, though I'm not yet sure which is which. Included somewhere in there are Torla, Tirsa and Tipra Dunbar, Tirsa's daughter Alii, and Mora. I give you The Port Sarai Resistance:
My job has had me on the road a lot and its cut down on my hobby a time. This trip I decided to at least try and take something with me to occupy the evenings. This means a checked bag as none of my tools or paints are likely to make it past TSA. If I do this again I need to find a better container than the shoebox. I basically put in stuff that I would at least be interested in working on and would survive travel. Since I'm down to one carry on at this point finished models can be hand carried and not subject to the rigors of the baggage handlers. On a side note I would recommend not watching the baggage handlers unload a plane from the observation windows. Last night I pulled out the Srike Hawk VTOL kit from Critical Mass Games and their Kickstarter. I don't think this is up for sale on their website yet. Here are a few pictures and if you want to see more, including assembly shots, you can check out my blog: http://http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2013/08/critical-mass-games-strike-hawk.html The resin parts are incrediably free of mold lines except for the backside of the engine pods which you can't really see anyway. The worst mold lines were on the pewter skids, almost like the mold had slipped a little bit. All the other pewter pieces came out just fine though, light mold lines and easily cleaned up. Assembly was straight forward and quite simple. Its a great kit and should hold up well on the gaming table.
