Hello everyone,

 

Some of you already know my Roza Shanina build (Check here ->Let's present ... Roza Shanina<-) and my Russian tank commander and tank rider build (Check here ->Painting female Soviet tank commanders and tank riders<-) and some might have noticed the little glimpse of what I was working on at the headswap topic (check ->here<-).

 

But now it is time to present the project as a whole.

 

Whoever is interested in the background of the project might find an answer in this post ->here<-

 

So, let's get started.

 

As at the the time I started the project my sculpting skills were far inferior to what I am able to do today, I needed some plain surface for sculpting female attributes onto the body.

 

Luckily Warlord Games had just released a number of Soviet Russians in winter clothing, so I took the opportunity to get me a box of them and started working.

Unfortunately the heads I wanted to use were unavailable so I began working on the bodies alone. Not a problem for me. I am running around headless most of my time, so I know what I am doing.

After having cut out and cleaned the bases, it was time to go onto the bodies.

Using some greenstuff it was rather easy to make males into females. And luckily there are a lot of reference pictures  of real female soldiers in WWII. Yeah - well. Those who know me know that I normally reject reality and substitute my own. Therefore - mixed real and anime approaches to make the girls visually appealing on a greater distance.

I do have this thing about WWII  stuff. Soviets always start Al Stewart's Roads to Moscow playing through my head.

That, however, is just me. Have FUN with the project. Thanks for the links by the way; re, I had missed post threads.

Well - I have my own feelings about this topic and thought I use a lot different stuff and do a more humorous approach, I still try to stay fair and respectful to it.

 

Thanks for the comment.

And some progress:

And some progress:

 

Copplestone's Bolshevik Heroines as command group:

 

jykm-1mp-5e81.jpg

 

jykm-1mq-4fec.jpg

 

Vitalia and Vladimira, two sisters from Siberia will be Commissar units. Well, makes sense. I mean - one is a chain smoker and the other one was a well-known opera singer. A perfect match. Maybe one of them will later become mayor of a small Russian town. We will see.

 

jykm-1mr-e501.jpg

 

Then there is Olga. She is our flag bearer. I have to do some improvements on her. I mean ... she should be in Winter Clothes. Not summer.

 

jykm-1ms-466c.jpg

 

And then there are Anastasia Zhukova and her bodyguard Irina. First one was a cossack girl back in the days, the latter will be an NKVD agent.

 

But now - let's have a look at the infantry unit:

 

jykm-1mt-397d.jpg

 

Finally there are some heads. Yay! So three figures are already ready to be painted.

 

jykm-1mu-dd79.jpg

 

And the first machine-gun team and Sergeant Jekaterina Romanova.

 

jykm-1mv-d06d.jpg

 

jykm-1mw-cd1b.jpg

 

jykm-1mx-b156.jpg

 

They all have got slightly different uniforms. I needed to do some testing for the "perfect" colour, but I think all those slight variations are great for later personality of the different characters.

 

Next stop: Painting!

A wonderful project you have going, enjoying this thread.

 

 Very keen on Copplestone Castings, all of their "Back of Beyond" range has potential for this sort of conversion.

Haha. Thanks.

 

Yeah. I really like the Heroines. They perfectly fit to the other sculpts and still stand out.

 

Thanks for the comment.

 

First group of figures is already finished.

The first group, especially the bossy Blonde, turned out WONDERFULLYOUTSTANDING WORK!

 

Yeah. I think afar from the Roza character, this is the best figure of the whole set of female Soviets ;-D I am really proud of her.

 

Thanks for the comment!

I like the work you're doing!  Are you aware that Bad Squiddo out of England has an assortment of Russian Female troops?  I have all of them they've come out with so far and they're quite nice.  :)

They also have the She-Wolves the female Nazi troops.

And many other female miniatures from all kinds of ranges and eras.

Might be useful for conversion purposes.

 

They do have a conversion corner with female heads and such as well.

Yes I know. They weren't available when I started the project and they are all in summer uniforms. I got a couple of them for the project just to notice that they are just partially usefull. So I didn't buy more. The tank riders and tank commanders are from Annie's website.

Yeah. You know I am totally sick of all this Nazi stuff. She-wolves, werewolves, zombies ... I don't need it.

 

I got a lot of other female figures from Annie, though. A lot of good sculpts. I used one to create a Devola Style figure for one of my Sci Fi games. Haha.

 

And the heads ... yeah. Well - that's what's on my Ice Witches.

 

Further updates later this evening.

      These have been in the WIP section for a while now and I finally finished them up. If your are curious about the process I have a complete list of links to my blog detailing everything that was done. I finished three of these but figured you only need to see pictures of one of them, they are all very similiar.
       
      The U304(f) are captured WWII French Halftracks (P107) which were armored by the Germans and served with the 21st Panzer Division in Normandy. They are among a large number of conversions of French vehicles created by Major Alfred Becker.

      It is never a good idea to play a alternate history video game when you own a 3d printer and love history. My first mini off the the printer is the T95 tank destroyer It was an American prototype. This is in 1/100 scale and it is big for that scale.
      It will need to be cured tomorrow and cleaned up for assembly. 
      Here it is mock assembled next to a Flames of war 76mm Sherman.



      Currently working on tiger 2, 105 Pershing and E-100 Turrets. The hulls will come after that.
      Now to find a good looking Maus Stl .

      I finally finished some of the WWII German tanks that I have in the stash. These are a bit on the unusual side even for the Germans. The 21st Panzer Division was part of the German’s D-Day defenses but had not really been properly equipped. Major Alfred Becker converted Obsolete French tanks and carriers to help equip the Division.
      These are from Mad Bob Miniatures, they are all resin and only require a bit of assembly. The resin is a bit on the soft side and the longer gun had to be straightened. The castings are a bit rough as well but since they are gaming pieces I didn’t take the time to smooth things out,  just normal prep. I would have liked something a bit more detailed but, for the price and the amount of use they will see, they are about perfect.

      Here are the ones I have completed so far:
       
       
      Starting off with the mSPW S307(f) with a Pak 40 ATG



       
      Then 3 self propelled artillery pieces, SdKfz 135/1 “Lorraine Schlepper”






       
      These are relatively small vehicles so they don’t need a lot of storage room. Since they are open topped they will be getting a few crew figures at some point as well. The 135/1 should have a blade in the back to absorb recoil when the gun is fired. I’m still considering scratch building these because they seem a bit incomplete right now.

      Street Judge and a couple of members from the street gang box. These are cast in WGs  new resin, and I'm not sure about it. Stuff is very flexible and the detail on the gangers is very shallow so you have use a light touch with the paint and it can be hard to figure out what you're painting. Turned out ok.

      Today marks the 76th Anniversary of what has been dubbed "The Longest Day", when the push to liberate Europe from NAZI Oppression and predation set foot on the beaches of Normandy, France.
      Please keep all the brave men [and the corp of Nurses who didn't have to but volunteered anyway] who sacrificed so much for all of us in that and the subsequent days and months.
