I have no idea why, it just does!
As my grand painting plans were taking a while to get finished, I decided to try to do some things that have been hanging around that should be quick. The fruits of this endeavour were some flames of war soviets.
First up, some scouts which I've made more interesting by adding some German prisoners, made by Peter Pig
Close up of one of the bases
To keep with the recce theme, some BA-64s
I added decals for a bit of visual interest given the Soviet approach to adding markings was a bit hit-and-miss as far as I can tell.
Rogue Trader sculpts and they were a joy to paint again as they'd been paint stripped a while ago.
I doubt they'll see the table in a 40k game, but perhaps Pulp Alley or similar at some point.
I'll hopefully be posting a fair bit more as the challenge really works to get me painting!
