I, in the meantime, have not been idle. Megablitz has grabbed me by the lapels and said 'DO ME!' In a fully consensual way, of course. So here's my first efforts in that line. The Glorious Red Army is the obvious choice and I thought I'd start with a Rifle Corps. So far I've got the three divisions and anti-tank regiments done. I still need to source and paint up the Corps artillery, transport and headquarters. The figures are Italerai 1/72 Soviet infantry from the, frankly, poor winter clothing set. The next toys are from the 'summer set' and are much better. The anti-tank gun started life as a weapon of the fascist vipers and is now re-branded as a 45mm M1937.
There are also four vehicles. Most likely bound for postings to an armoured unit but we'll see. Two are definitely LOG vehicles. One of which has a load of sacks in the back that were once cement bags but now contain Lend-Lease food for Ivan. One looks like a good propaganda wagon for The Commissar. The last one could well be used by The Boss himself, hence the out-sized star.
On To Berlin!
Where's The Rest Of Us?
