I even put some of it together and undercoat/basecoated it with ary painter. Heck, I even painted a couple of infantry platoons. But not many figures compared to the total purchases..... It's probably easier if I show you what I'm talking about....
|T-34s! Both 76's and 85's for those in the know. Which i now am after playing FoW|
|Errr, more T-34s... And some KVs....|
|"And you bought all these without an opponent you say?"|
|"Errr, yes..... But in defence these aren't T-34s! Does that even help a little bit? No? Thought not."|
|Some infantry! And some even have filler on their bases....|
|More infantry! And trucks... and recce vehicles.... and.....|
|Hurrah - some painted ones at last!|
|Oops... back to not really painted ones.....|
So Von's decision to really go for it with his FJ has cheered me up no end - I get a chance to use the Soviets! It's amazing how much more I'm incentivised to work on them now I know there is some game time coming up. And looks like this might also inspire Eddie to get some Germans finished to give me two opponents. Excellent!
The plan is to get at least a 1500 point army ready for play and go from there. I'm excited by this - new version of the rules, new army, new opponents and what more could a gamer ask for? :)
