So now the time has come to show off my first entry into Curts Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge. Well actually it is my second entry, but since the first entry is for the fortnight theme (which will only be push listed by Curt today) I am showing this as the first.
Now these are nothing special, just two Soviet snipers from Victory Force. These will augment the rest of my Russian infantry force. So far I have only had one sniper, but in scout uniform and I wanted snipers from the regular infantry.
Now when I painted the other infantry, I felt that the WWII soviets and their uniforms were extremely boring subject. So I simply blocked out the colours and gave them a brown wash. These were just painted to match.
Obviously only a very humble start, but I hope that the next one (French Hussars) will make up for it.
These gave me 8 points for my 1000 point target. Almost there! 😛
