Russian Vehicle Commission V

I’ve finished 8 of the 12 Hinds, the other 4 are going to sit for a little bit while I recover from painting soooo many vehicles. To paint the camouflage I used Anarchy Model’s HD Stencil System. I really like these stencils, they’re sticky enough without pulling paint up with some flexibility. Ideally they would…

Russian Vehicle Commission III

The last steps to complete were some weathering. Although you could probably argue this started with applying the paint chipping in the previous step. Because there are so many and the tanks are so small I’ve taken a pretty simplified approach to weathering the tanks. I could have spent long and gotten more realistic results,…

Russian Vehicle Commission II

Some more progress on the T-72s. I’ve finished cleaning the wash, but unfortunately there’s a couple of things I would do differently next time. The first is applying a gloss varnish before the wash. This protects the underlying colour and also provides a smooth surface that makes controlling the wash much easier. Because I didn’t…

Russian Vehicle Commission

Team Yankee uses 15mm miniatures and the rules are based on Flames of War (Battlefront’s 15mm WW2 game, that is their claim to fame). I don’t have much experience with Flames, but Team Yankee seems to…

Russian Armour

I’ve actually painted some 3mm stuff. In spite of the name and purported purpose of this site is seems I do more of everything else, other than that. This is not everything, just a few samples of some modern Russian armour I’ve been painting for no particular game or game system. First, some BMP-2s. I’ve…

Russian Su-27 Flanker – Base Colours

I’ve had these on my desk for a while and I’ve been itching to paint one in a bright blue camouflage scheme I spotted a while back. For some reason the pictures of these are always done in some crazy camouflage scheme. I’m not sure if it would work, but maybe the point is to…

Soviet Rocket Artillery Battery

My E-8C project is on hold for a bit while I wait on some more decals arriving. This pause has given me some time to focus on another piece for my Soviet Hind Commander force. Namely, I’ve put together a Rocket Artillery Battery. In Hind Commander these forces are off-table so there are no rules…
