Tackling the Red Bear, Update 1

Three weeks have past since my last update and I managed to do a few things. To little in my opinion but if your not in the mood to paint don't do it.

I finished painting the infantry and they are ready to be based now. I finished 4 stands in excess they were already primend and I thought why not finish them.

Tackling the Red Bear, the first List

To get playing fast I was looking for a list which includes roughly 50% of models I have already painted or are near completion. Since I ordered a number of M3A1 armored cars and I dread the task of painting a strelkovy batalon. I decided to paint a Rota Razvedki.

Tackling the Red Bear

Hi there finally I have some time to update this blog again. With the time comes the desire to get rid of a lot of the stuff which has accumulated in my pile of shame over the last two years. The titel might be misleading I actually want to paint the red tide which threatens to wash over me from a top of the mountain of unfinished models. But lets start at the beginning.

Bolt Action Germans

Hi there
Late last year a local friendly gaming store organized a escalation campaign for Bolt Action. Since I had a lot of other hobby projects at the time I was reluctant to start another gaming system and I did not participate. In January I changed my mind and as it often is with me I went big. I got 2000 points of German Fallschirmjäger. Yes Splittertarn that will be fine to paint in 28mm... I quick painted a squad but surprisingly  I kind of lost the joy of Splittertarn quiet fast. Who saw that coming?
In May I went on and got a Pegasus Bridge from Warlord Games and with it came some standard Grenadiers. What you see in this post is all what I have painted until today and there are still more Jäger and Grenadiers waiting. It might not be the best of paintjobs but it should be enough from a gamers point of view, so enjoy.
