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.

In 2014 I played the first time for the Swiss team at the ETC, playing a Soviet light assault gun company was a lot of fun. So I started by just painting up the units I needed to complete the list. Now and then I played more German and American lists. In 2015 I decided it would be a good idea to start a real Soviet force (yeah what a great idea ;)). So last year a lot of Soviet models accumulated in my collection sadly they mostly miss some paint. To enhance my desire to paint them all I decided in late 2015 to play only Soviets at all events in 2016.

So what is the purpose of this series of posts? Well I hope that it will keep me on track to finish all Soviet models for Flames of War and Team Yankee. I like painting up the units for a specific list I want to play at some point. So I hope that in this posts I can also evolve the list and find lists that fit my play style.

So first lets see what is left in the pile to be painted:

Flames of War:
A lot of infantry and mortars, some M3A1 Scout cars and other bits and pieces.

At least some stuff is in an advanced stage of completing.

Team Yankee:

The Team Yankee stuff, not really a colour full list.

So that's it. Now I'll make some lists. See you next time for the first set of lists and the master plan to tackel the Red Bear.
