Soviet Engineer-Sapper

On the painting table now: Soviet Engineer-Sappers. Before I paint my Fallschirmjagers I wanted to try new paints and decide on the painting style I will use. For that purpose I took my Soviet Engineer-Sappers that I bought long time ago to use in a diorama with big mecha. Their combat armour gives them that cool pulp look.
On the rather artsy picture you can see the paints I used and some figures.

New Order.

I received my new order from maelstrom games: Coat d'arms paints, Forged in battle German paratroopers, Flames of War special order MG34/42 and Germans with panzerfausts. I wanted MG to add some more firepower to paratroopers and panzerfausts as a reference to sculpting my own. Because I placed my order on 3rd of February and there were Flames of War items in it I received the new 3rd edition Flames of War rulebook. I must say I'm impressed with the quality of this book and even tho I didn't wanted to play this game I might try it afterwards.

I might add some in box/blister photos later this week before I start my conversion work.
